Canada CIFAR AI Chair
Pan-Canadian AI Strategy
Bo Wang is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair at the Vector Institute and a professor at the Faculty of Medicine in the University of Toronto. He is a lead scientist of the artificial intelligence team for Peter Munk Cardiac Centre at University Health Network (UHN).
Wang’s primary research areas are machine learning, computational biology, and computer vision. Through his long-term research goals, Wang aims to develop integrative and interpretable machine learning algorithms that can help clinicians with predictive models and decision support to tailor patients’ care to their unique clinical and genomic traits.
