Senior IEEE member

Academic director, Technion-Rambam Initiative in Medical AI (TERA)

Executive Editorial Board member, IOP Physiological Measurement

Dr. Behar founded the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Laboratory (AIMLab.) at the Technion Faculty of Biomedical Engineering in March 2019. His work involves research of medical artificial intelligence to benefit patient care, and includes development of machine learning algorithms for analyzing large medical unstructured, i.e., physiological time series and medical images and datasets, with an emphasis on early diagnosis in the medical disciplines of cardiology, sleep medicine and ophthalmology. He has made significant contributions to the discovery of diagnostic biomarkers in cardiology and sleep medicine. The lab has already conducted large-scale experiments on extensive databases, encompassing millions of participants and thousands of hours of continuous physiological recordings. Dr. Behar published authored over 50 journal papers in top life science and engineering journals. Since 2016 he serves as editor for the journal Physiological Measurement and has been on the program committee of the Computing in Cardiology international conference since 2013. Dr. Behar is twice winner of the MIT-PhysioNet/Computing in Cardiology competition. In 2022, he initiated the Technion-Rambam Initiative in Medical AI (TERA), a collaborative effort between the Technion and Rambam Health Care Campus, utilizing large medical datasets and state-of-the-art AI advances to combat human diseases.
