VEDA Data Solutions, a platform that uses machine learning to increase accuracy of healthcare directories, has launched VEDA Labs and the VEDA Labs Fellowship. Organizers say the fellowship will be a hub for scientific research to create breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

“VEDA Labs seeks to be a leader in interdisciplinary research as a scientific response to the world’s data revolution,” Dr. Alyssa Adams of VEDA said in a statement. “The purpose of VEDA Labs is to rethink industry-standard approaches to data prediction by bringing together a diverse set of scientific fields that have been independently asking these questions for years, from network niche construction in mathematics to collective decision making in psychology.”
