NCSI Seminar: Computational Health: Blending Big Data, Computation, and Analytics

There has never been a better time to bring modern computation and analytics to inform individualized treatments and interventions for our most vulnerable populations. Current approaches to studying these adverse outcomes relies on averages across a population and does not consider retrospective information across patients with similar profiles. In this talk, I will discuss our multi-disciplinary team and our current methods blending computation, big data and visual analytics to individualize obstetric and perinatal healthcare.
