Transforming health with small data

We are in exactly the right time and place to transform health outside the clinic and inside real people’s real lives.  It’s time for the Tech Community to take the lead in creating data-driven, design-rich, and behaviorally-insightful innovations and to do it in the bold, real world engaged way that computing has transformed almost every other industry. In this talk we will discuss how can data driven techniques for user modeling, preference profiling, and consumer engagement help us create a Phenotype revolution to close the gap between what we are born with and what we die from
