Health


Data science and biomedicine are a powerful combination, and the Northeast region is well poised to bring them together. The provision of health care and the discovery of biological knowledge are heavily focused on information, with highly complex, vast data sets harboring the potential for transformative impact when partnered with the capabilities of data science.

The Health Spoke focuses on:

(1) acquisition and integration of data and knowledge, especially alternative health data sources such as social media, quantified self, characterization of healthcare workflow, environmental factors, and mobile health;

(2) advanced analytics, including causal discovery and reasoning, artificial intelligence, and machine learning; and

(3) precision medicine, including advanced decision support to deliver useful knowledge and recommendations.
