Keynote: Answering Questions of Health and Medicine Using Internet Data

We are proud to announce Elad Yom-Tov from Microsoft Research as the Keynote Speaker at Medicine 2.0'14 in Maui.

The title of his keynote will be Answering Questions of Health and Medicine Using Internet Data.

Elad Yom-Tov is a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research. He has published two books, over 60 papers (of which 3 were awarded prizes), and filed more than 30 patents (16 of which have been granted so far). His primary research interests are in large-scale Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, and Social Analysis. The results of his work have flown at four times the speed of sound, enabled people to communicate with computers using only their brain-waves, and analyzed the cellphone records of a significant portion of the worlds’ population.
