Winter 2014 Seminar Series: Big Data Infrastructure

Winter  2014 Seminar Series.
Discussion: Big Data Infrastructure.

The CWDS seminar series is centered around intellectual exchange and
interaction, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions during
presentations. The goal is a seminar that looks less like a lecture and
more like a spirited discussion of issues raised in a relatively brief
presentation of a paper or a research project. 

U.S. healthcare expenditures continue to skyrocket, and more than $700 billion is wasted every year. That’s the problem CWDS and our industry partners seek to solve.

CWDS  and our research collaborators develop software solutions that help Healthcare payers (like insurance companies) and providers drive down costs, achieve regulatory compliance and accelerate true reform. In this talk, we will share with you how we are trying to help them in this goal by predicting future events. Our research has two parts, Population Cost Prediction and Risk of Readmission. We will give an overview of what we have done for both parts thus far, and what look at what we plan for the future. We will also show a demo of our project.  Hope to see all of  you there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
