Optum, UCLA partner on AI, machine learning research

Optum Labs, the R&D arm of UnitedHealth Group, is partnering with researchers in UCLA's computational medicine department to study how artificial intelligence and machine learning can be used to personalize treatments and improve care costs and quality.

The five-year collaboration was negotiated by the university's Technology Development Group, which will evaluate new research proposals and award grants — including an initial $1 million from Optum, according to an Oct. 10 news release.

The group is currently accepting research proposals through Oct. 31.
