How big data is changing healthcare
Every day we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data globally. Researchers and health professionals are starting to harness the power of this big data to improve healthcare.
In this first event of the Imperial College Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC) seminar series, an expert from the Trust will pair up with an expert from the Imperial College London to talk about how they are using big data to discover new insights and solutions to major health issues. The event will take place at St Mary’s on Monday 4 July.
This talk will be delivered by Professor Yike Guo, director of the data science institute at the College and Dr Sanjay Gautama, Caldicott Guardian and chief clinical information officer, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
Professor Guo will discuss how big data can help personalise the diagnosis and treatment of severe asthma.
