Lunch @UCSF with Adam Ferguson – Leveraging AI techniques in medicine

DOWNLOADABLE GUIDE TO SUNDAY EVENTS 

Adam Ferguson has remained true to what he calls a “history of indecision and multidisciplinary interests” by setting up a lab that is really two labs: one that focuses on biomedical informatics and data science, and the other on neurological injury, pain biology and recovery of function after injury.

During this lunch session, Ferguson will address “dark data” – data that is collected, processed and stored, but not fully used. Dark data is thought to comprise the vast majority of data collected across the annual $240 billion biomedical research enterprise. He will discuss ongoing efforts to render dark data into an actionable format, and will present recently published work demonstrating the value of so-called topological data analysis on preclinical data for discovery of new therapies for traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury.

Join Ferguson for a survey of both neuroscience and the role of big-data analytics for accelerating scientific discovery and health care decision-support for traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries.
