Ep. 4: What’s the Forecast? Predicting Disease with Big Data & Artificial Intelligence w. Dr. Jason Davies

Jason Davies, MD, PhD, is Research Director at the Jacobs Institute. He is also an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and Biomedical Informatics at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. He chats with us about how we can tap into the power of big data analytics and artificial intelligence to help predict disease, including COVID-19. How does wearable technology play a role? How important are Electronic Health Records? Can we use social media to monitor and predict infectious disease spread?


'Previvors' is the chapter in the Jacobs Institute's Future of Medicine report that examines machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), as applied to medicine.

'Data Wars' addresses the need for Universal Health Records in order to streamline care and assess data for public health trends.
