Collaboration For Health In A Digital Age
Joel Selanikio, M.D.'s Speech Topics
Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Health
Dramatic changes in the capacity, size and distribution of technology has meant an unprecedented acceleration in the generation of electronic data in recent years. This includes traditional health data, but also nontraditional sources like smartphones, shopping data and more. More recently, machine learning and other artificial intelligence (AI) systems have been developed which can utilize these enormous amounts of data, seeking useful patterns. While the commercial sector has taken the lead in applying AI to big data, it’s clear that it will also be applied to both the traditional healthcare system as well as to health promotion outside that system. Dr. Joel Selanikio, a technologist and practicing physician, leads the audience from the definitions and origins of big data through examples of the first steps—and the larger promise—of applying AI in healthcare.
