Presentation Title: “Accelerating Innovation in Healthcare through Simulated EHR data”


The enthusiasm about AI is outpacing people’s understanding. Trying to apply AI when knowledge of it is limited can lead to either missed opportunities for easy wins, or having unrealistic expectations for what problems it can solve. This talk aims to inform people on what AI is and its history and development, but primarily focus on what it can do as well as AI’s limitations.

Bio: I’m a data scientist, data illustrator, and writer. I enjoy finding undiscovered insights in information. I’ve been creating models for 10 years and have worked with about a dozen Fortune 500 companies better leverage their data. Currently I’m the principal machine learning engineer at ClearObject where I set best practices for our AI development.
