DataPhilly: April; Philly Tech Week Edition

Location: Room 340

Talks:

Data science in Health Care (Michael Draugelis & Corey Chivers)

This talk will give a brief overview of the Data Science mission at Penn Med and highlight the technical and operational challenges specific to healthcare. Finally there will be a demo of an early view of PatientSignalsML -- a system to accelerate the development and deployment of machine learning solutions for medicine and health care problems. Penn Signals is an integrated platform for processing real-time clinical data streams from a variety of sensors and source systems. The platform provides clinicians and researchers with multiple access-points into this rich stream of data. Penn signals provides the tools needed build, train, test, and, importantly, to deploy predictive applications powered by the data stream. By removing the technical and operational barriers associated with building and deploying predictive applications, Penn Signals aims to accelerate innovation in clinical informatics.


Corey Chivers is the product lead on the data science team at Penn Medicine. He completed his PhD in computational biology at McGill University in 2014 where he specialized in building Bayesian models for predicting large-scale complex dynamic systems. He founded the Montreal R Users group, and blogs about competitive machine learning, probability, and statistics at bayesianbiologist.com.

      As people RSVP no, people from the waitlist are automatically RSVPed yes, in the order they were added to the waitlist. You'll get a notification if this happens.
