The association, which has more than 20 members, will use large data, machine learning and artificial intelligence platforms to establish in two years a network of family medical and rehabilitation services for 20,000 people with neurological disorders, said Xiao Haipeng, vice-president of Sun Yat-sen University and president of the university’s First Affiliated Hospital.
