After his cardiology training at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with his research interest in mathematics and chaos theory in biomedicine, Dr. Anthony Chang was an attending cardiologist in the cardiovascular intensive care unit of Boston Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. Throughout his career as a pediatric cardiac intensive care physician, he has been interested in applications of biomedical data to decision-making.
He completed his Masters of Science (MS) in Data Science with a sub-specialization in artificial intelligence from Stanford School of Medicine.

Mi4 is dedicated to empowering data intelligence and medical innovation at CHOC, and driving innovation leadership in the international pediatrics community.
He intends to build a clinician-computer scientist interface with a nascent society (the Medical Intelligence Society) and is the editor-in-chief of Intelligence-Based Medicine, the accompanying journal for his book, Intelligence-Based Medicine: Artificial Intelligence and Human Cognition in Clinical Medicine and Healthcare.
He is the organizing chair for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIMed) meetings around the world, the largest and most comprehensive clinician-led meetings that focus on applications of artificial intelligence in medicine and the Chair of the American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM).
