题目：The Future of Healthcare Analytics
主讲人：Dr. Sheng-Chuan Wu
摘要：Since sequencing of the human genome in 2003, we have dreamed about managing patient health more effectively based on their genomic profiles. Such a dream remains elusive. “The fundamental difficulty lies in the complexity of biological systems that have evolved through billions of years.” On the other hand, major progress can be and has been made in "personalized medicine" by applying AI machine learning on massive patient medical data accumulated. In essence, we can uncover new insight from the data to improve patient health without knowing the biology behind it. Such new insight is then added back into the medical knowledge to form a richer knowledge graph for personalized medicine, predictive patient modeling, patient risk assessment, public health monitoring, etc. Exploiting patient medical data brings another set of management problems, namely the heterogeneous nature of data sources and taxonomies, the enormous size of data volume, and huge analytic processing requirements. At this talk, we will discuss all these issues and show some case studies at a major research hospital in New York City.
