“Healthcare in the Age of Algorithms: Creating disruption without disrupting care”

Very little of the modern world has been left untouched by the Age of Algorithms. Technologies like machine intelligence, ubiquitous cloud computing, data warehousing and analytics and distributed sensor networks have revolutionized the way information is used, processed and applied to almost every aspect of our lives. Yet, in healthcare, the algorithmic drive towards optimization and efficiency has seen very uneven adoption. In this talk, I’ll highlight some of the ways that these technologies have already impacted the various data domains within healthcare, some of the potential upcoming innovations on the horizon, and share a vision of both the amazing possibilities and potential pitfalls of a world where the patient experience is ultimately reduced to data.
