The Michael J. Fox Foundation — the nation’s largest for Parkinson’s research — and IBM have created a partnership to develop technology aimed at better tracking the onset and progression of Parkinson’s disease.

The foundation will provide grants and a vast amount of longitudinal data from its Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative, an global observational clinical study, to IBM, the company announced Tuesday. In return, IBM will develop artificial intelligence technologies that the partners hope will provide a more comprehensive look at the disease and how it progresses.
