A keynote lecture by Ajay Royyuru, Vice President of Healthcare & Life Sciences Research at IBM.
Biology and medicine are transformed into an information science, enabling rapid translation from discovery to practice. This talk will present the opportunities and insights from the accumulation of electronic medical records, medical insurance claims, digital phenotype, including; imaging, medical literature, and omics data. Such data, coupled with advances in artificial intelligence techniques and detailed mechanistic models of biochemical and physiological phenomena, are yielding novel personalized insights across healthcare and life sciences. In this lecture, Ajay Royyuru -Healthcare & Life Sciences research lead at IBM - will discuss examples from recent work in oncology, cardiology, and neuroscience.
Introduction by Prof. Khaled Salama, co-Chair of WEP 2020.
