Three is a magic number: Professor Su-In Lee earns trio of honors, including the “Korean Nobel Prize” in engineering, for advancing AI for biomedicine

Su-In Lee holding a pen and looking off to the side For as long as she can remember, Allen School professor Su-In Lee wanted to be a scientist and professor when she grew up. Her father would sit her down at their home in Korea with a pencil and paper to teach her math — lessons that instilled not just a love of the subject matter but also of teaching. Today, and Lee is putting those lessons to good use in training the next generation of scientists and engineers while advancing explainable AI for biomedical applications. She is also adding up the accolades: After the International Society for Computational Biology recognized Lee with its 2024 ISCB Innovator Award and the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering inducted her into the AIMBE College of Fellows, yesterday the Ho-Am Foundation announced Lee as the 2024 Samsung Ho-Am Prize Laureate in Engineering.

Artificial intelligence tools have the potential to become as essential to medical research and patient care as centrifuges and x-ray machines. Advances in high-accuracy predictive modeling can enable providers to analyze a range of patient risk factors to facilitate better health care outcomes — from preventing the onset of complications during surgery, to assessing the risk of developing various diseases. When it comes to emergency services or critical care settings, however, the potential benefits of… Read more →
