Universitaet Bern

The Artificial Intelligence in Health and Nutrition (AIHN) laboratory is a multidisciplinary research unit affiliated with the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research at the University of Bern.

Since 2008, the AIHN team works among others to empower diabetic patients by creating innovative healthcare technology and collaborating within the framework of national, European, and international projects.

Ongoing basic, applied, and translational research activities in the laboratory include AI-based innovative systems for implementing dietary assessment tools, as well as algorithms that allow the optimisation and personalisation of glucose control. Furthermore, the laboratory also develops supportive systems to diagnose and manage lung diseases.

Role within MELISSA

The University of Bern through the AIHN lab provides the essential technology for MELISSA and specifically AI-powered algorithms for diabetes management (insulin personalization, risk assessment, dietary assessment).

Given the complexity of the treated matter, AIHN will also provide support to clinical investigations, user requirements, and ethical aspects of the solution. AIHN will contribute to disseminating and communicating the scientific outcome of the research results obtained during the project in renowned international conferences and journals.

Finally, AIHN will provide support in project management and IP strategy throughout the length of the project.
