Human organoids are three-dimensional organ-like cultures derived from human stem cells and tissues and can recapitulate key physiology of specific organs or tissues found in the human body, holding promising potential in studying organ development, disease modeling, drug screening, and regenerative medicine applications. For example, human brain organoids can recreate certain brain cell diversity and brain structure to mimic the development of embryonic brain tissues and inspire new artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Our group is dedicated to developing and integrating “Intelligent Organoid Systems” by leveraging innovative device design, sensor fusion, and AI-guided system integration to interface organoids for addressing the challenges in AI computing and precision medicine. In this talk, I will introduce the development of organoid computing and AI-powered organoid systems and showcase their translational applications in disease diagnosis, personalized therapy, and drug screening for translational oncology, neurology, and immunology. By building the intersection between organoids with AI, we hope to create innovative intelligent tools that are highly efficient, accurate, and convenient, ultimately revolutionizing medicine.


Dr. Feng Guo is an associate professor of Intelligent Systems Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB). Before joining IUB in 2017, he received his Ph.D. in Engineering Science and Mechanics at Penn State and his postdoc training at Stanford University School of Medicine. His group is developing intelligent medical devices, sensors, and systems with the support of multiple NIH and NSF awards. He is a recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, the Outstanding Junior Faculty Award at IU, the Early Career Award at Penn State, the Dean Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford School of Medicine, etc.
