For the first time in the world cardiologists in Turin exploit Artificial Intelligence to define post heart attack strategy

A study by the University Cardiology Department of the “Città della Salute” (Turin’s Health and Science Centre), carried out with researchers from UniTo and PoliTo, to create a new system for classifying the risk of future events in patients after a heart attack, has been published in the journal The Lancet. A technique that will bring about a veritable revolution and statistically reduce the possibility of an incorrect diagnosis. This result reinforces the choice of Turin as the headquarters of the Italian Institute for Artificial Intelligence
