 The Auton Lab at Carnegie Mellon University is a leading research facility focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Its interdisciplinary team of experts collaborates to develop cutting-edge algorithms and systems that solve complex real-world problems.

PRHI, as part of its Patient Safety Technology Challenge, was also an event sponsor for the Auton Lab HackAuton held Sept. 15-17. HackAuton provided CMU students with the opportunity to engage with lab members, apply their skills, work with peers, learn from mentors, and tackle an exciting challenge in competition for a prize.

The winning team's focus was Prescription Evaluation using GPT4 and openFDA where they created a demo of a prescription checker that used artificial intelligence which would reduce human oversight and improve effectiveness. Team members include Charlie Sun and Minh Tran.
