Dr. Amar Gupta of MIT’s Institute of Medical Engineering and Science (IMES) has recently accepted the editor-in-chief role at TMT.

Amar Gupta has been an Endowed Professor at two universities. He is currently with the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science, as well as the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, at MIT. A disruptive force and humanitarian, Dr Gupta developed MIT’s “Telemedicine and Telehealth for Enhancing Global Health” course that received rave reviews from participants. He pioneered content-based image search techniques on microcomputers & was lead inventor of the patented character-recognition technology used for electronic check-processing. He developed neural-network algorithms for reading mammograms - dramatically reducing the incidence of false negatives and false positives. He developed a neural network-based system for slashing by half a national pharmacy chain’s $1 billion drug-inventory while maintaining the same probability for availability of drug in stock.

Dr. Gupta will serve, alongside Dr. John D. Halamka, as co - Editor in Chief of Telehealth and Medicine Today. 

We are most happy to welcome Dr. Gupta to Telehealth and Medicine Today, and look forward to his and Dr. Halamka’s stewardship.
