Title: Brainstorming AI and Digital Twin Applications for Neonatal Intensive Care

Abstract: Novel technologies are dramatically changing the landscape for care of the pregnant mother and newborn, just as they are in many other fields of medicine. Environmental exposures can modulate expression of our inherent genomic template resulting in different phenotypes. In the fetus and neonate, they can make a difference for the entire lifetime of the individual and even incur transgenerational effects. These interactions between our inherent genomic template and extrinsic environment can now be evaluated using integrated multiomics, which also rely on artificial intelligence (AI) for analysis. The applications of AI and the digital twin concept for neonatal intensive care are in the early stages. In this lecture, some of the challenges and potential applications will be presented to stimulate discussion on how we might be able to move forward in these exciting areas.
