Purpose:

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for the Artificial Intelligence and Technology Collaboratories (AITC) for Aging Research program. The AITC program will serve as a national resource to promote the development and implementation of artificial intelligence approaches and technology through demonstration projects to improve care and health outcomes for older Americans, including persons with dementia (PWD) and their caregivers.

 

The specific objectives of the AITC program are as follows: 1) serve as a national resource to promote the development and implementation of artificial intelligence approaches and technology through demonstration projects to improve care and health outcomes for older Americans, including persons with dementia (PWD) and their caregivers; 2) support pilot studies to develop and implement artificial intelligence approaches and technology across the country; 3) develop and disseminate technical and policy guidelines and best practices for effectively incorporating artificial intelligence approaches and technology for older Americans, in partnership with private industry, angel investors, venture capital firms, and healthcare systems; 4) work collaboratively with researchers across private industry, venture capital firms, the healthcare sector, and the NIA Office of Small Business Research to provide technical support for scaling up pilot studies; and 5) disseminate best practices for engaging stakeholders in research by (a) incorporating stakeholders into the research and development process and (b) conducting ethical research on how to incorporate artificial intelligence approaches and technology development in the special circumstances of individuals experiencing cognitive decline/impairment.
