The Conference Program at Big Data in HealthCare TLV, April 16, 2019

The Program will be entirely in English

The conference will focus on the topic of Big Data in HealthCare, particularly on technologies for the prediction of diseases and epidemics at individual, national and international levels. Around the world, Big Data algorithms have proved their epidemiological value many times,  warning of disease outbreaks and accurately predicting epidemics. In some cases it has been possible to use the information gathered to prevent the outbreak of disease.

Israeli companies are at the forefront, with several hundred Israeli companies developing algorithms and applications in this field. We would like to share their knowledge with experts from other countries. We believe that the meeting and cross-fertilization of minds, ideas and technologies can be  of immense benefit for health worldwide.

Conference attendees will include heads of private and public health systems, doctors and high-tech professionals, as well as heads of health-related institutions and organizations.

Program

Target audience: healthcare organizations, clinicians, academia, research institutions, computational medicine professionals, ministries of health, innovators, data scientists, IT and BI personnel, pharmaceutical companies, venture capitalists and startups.

Uniqueness: there is no other conference that focuses on and exposes people to Big Data and artificial intelligence in medicine.

Objective: To create a meeting and dialogue between a variety of groups, especially academics and startups.
