LIVE AT MIT! Wearables, Big Data, and Healthcare Innovation

This looks like a fascinating session.  If you'll be in the Boston area, you might want to drop by.

MIT SDM Speaker Series
Todd P. Coleman, M.S., Ph.D., MIT; Associate Professor of Bioengineering, University of California, San Diego; Director, Neural Interaction Laboratory; and Codirector, Center for Perinatal Health
Date: April 10, 2015
Time: 11 a.m. – noon EDT
Location: Wong Auditorium, E51
Free and open to all

In this presentation, MIT alumnus Todd P. Coleman will discuss the complex challenges involved in developing and implementing a suite of tools that transforms "big data" into "small, relevant" data to aid decision-making in perinatal health and chronic disease management. He will: 
  • Describe how flexible, multimodal electronics can be combined with physiologically­ guided analytics algorithms to provide vulnerability profiles that can be efficiently implemented in the cloud;
  • Explain how this suite of human-computer interface applications blurs the line between man and machine, while enabling humans and computers to play to their individual strengths;
  • Offer thoughts on the challenges of interdisciplinary research, using examples involving professionals from electrical engineering, medicine, management, and design; and
  • Discuss the socio-political and legal implications of this work and how they can be addressed.
A Q&A will follow the presentation in a nearby breakout room and lunch will provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

We invite you to join us.

About the Series

The MIT System Design & Management Speaker Series features presentations by leaders who use a systems-based approach to innovation. The series is designed to disseminate information on how to employ systems thinking to address engineering, management, and socio-political components of complex challenges in virtually any domain.
