Title: “Big Data Provides Opportunities, challenges and a Better Future in Health and Research”

Abstract:

Big data analysis promises huge opportunities, but raises huge issues. How do we ensure we are masters of the data revolution and avoid being enslaved by it?

Deriving useful information from Big Data requires the development of increasingly sophisticated methods of mathematical and statistical analysis and the design of efficient algorithms. The role of big data in medicine is one where we can build better health profiles and better predictive models around individual patients so that we can better diagnose and treat disease.

Major developments in pathology raise many questions. Be part of the discussion on the way forward.
