Catherine “Cat” Shoults, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI), has been accepted into the Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) Institute for Artificial Intelligence Summer Scholar Program.
Shoults was selected for the prestigious program after drawing international attention for her promising work in artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, the program was canceled this year due to illness of a key organizer – but we in DBMI are still proud of Cat.
DBMI Professor Dr. Jonathan Bona, who teaches information modeling and is a previous TU Dresden Scholar, facilitated the opportunity, along with the College of Medicine Artificial Intelligence Creativity Hub led by Distinguished Professor and Biomedical Informatics Chair Dr. Fred Prior.
Cat is part of the Biomedical Ontologies Arkansas group chaired by Dr. Bona and Dr. Mathias Brochhausen, Professor and Vice Chair for Academic Programs.
Her dissertation work focuses on data mining adverse events in Reddit to complement FDA drug safety reporting.
