Note: this event will be Livestreamed.

Healthcare impacts everyone - yet the technologies that power it are often far from current. So how does one go about building a modern big data stack at a Healthcare startup? What are some of the challenges of getting technologies to play well not just with each other but with the business problems being solved? In this talk, Marcin will discuss how Risalto Health has built out its data stack using a mix of AWS, Kubernetes, Airflow, Scala, Spark and Python for both ETL and Machine Learning.

Marcin Mejran is a Data Scientist at Risalto Health, a Healthcare startup focused on musculoskeletal care, where he wears many hats. His projects at Risalto and throughout his career range from Data Science to Machine Learning to Data Engineering to DevOps to Mobile. Prior to Risalto, he's worked in Healthcare and AdTech for more than a decade both hands on and as a manager. Marcin holds an MS in Statistics and a BS from Stanford University.
