Health Hack: From Targeted Ads to Precision Medicine
Anthony Philippakis

Every big idea in math and technology started as a single answer to a single problem — only to then revolutionize other fields in ways no one could have expected. Today's big ideas — cloud computing and machine learning — were born out of Internet marketing. Speaking from his perspective as the Broad's chief data officer, Anthony will explore how the same ideas can revolutionize science and medicine, provided that we bridge the culture gaps between technology, life sciences, and healthcare.
