The project, led by Prof. Eran Segal and his team of the Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, and Molecular Cell Biology Departments, aims to use state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technologies in order to generate personalized predictions for disease risk factors. The 10K project is a longitudinal study designed to collect lifestyle and clinical data from 10,000 individuals that will be recruited from the Israeli population, and is suitable for Hebrew speakers only.

Segal and his team believe that the analysis of the data obtained in this study will help in developing methodologies that will influence public health in the future.
