7th Annual IACS Symposium on the Future of Computation in Science and Engineering:

"The Digital Doctor: Health Care in an
Age of AI and Big Data"

Medicine and health care, like other aspects of life in the 21st century, are being reshaped by computational science, big data, and information technology. Given gigabytes of personal genomic data, therapies can be tailored to the individual patient and the individual disease. Standardized electronic health records create an information resource that improves decision making in the doctor’s office and also sheds light on health status across entire populations. Machine learning and artificial intelligence may soon augment the physician’s diagnostic skills. As these innovations promise to improve health and prolong lives, however, they also raise sticky economic and ethical questions.

Join experts from academia and industry for an all-day symposium at Harvard's Institute for Applied Computational Science for an in-depth look at how advances in technology have are impacting the human health services.

This event is free and open to the public.
