I previously posted about Data Science and Doctor Visits. What I would like to know.
Who is working on data science problems for medicine?
I would love to hear some answers to this. They can be individual researchers, startups, or established companies. If I get some responses, I will be sure to post a list on the blog.
Cloudera and Mount Sinai Medical School in New York have just formed a partnership tfor big data analysis in medicine. http://www.zdnet.com/cloudera-and-mount-sinai-the-structure-of-a-big-data-revolution-7000000354/
Thanks for sharing. I had seen that announcement a few days back, but I never read the details. I will look into it now.
Depends a bit on what you mean by “medicine” …
SolveBio appears to take a data science kind of approach to cancer research (http://techcrunch.com/2012/03/29/cloud-will-cure-cancer/)
nuMedii (http://numedii.com/) uses a data driven approach to find new indications for existing medicines.
Then there is a host of “genomic medicine” companies that will all have to be proficient at large scale data management and processing, statistics, data mining etc, see my blog post at http://followthedata.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/new-big-dna-data-cloud-and-genome-interpretation-companies/
These may not be what people usually regard as “medicine” but I think they are.
Thanks for sharing. I will look into those companies. Also, thanks for the links.
two examples http://ginger.io/ http://www.parkinsonsvoice.org/
Thanks for the information. I have heard of Ginger.io before, but I am not familiar with Parkinsons Voice. I might call the phone number today and take the survey.
Here’s a fresh blog post from GigaOM which deals with this topic. Pretty interesting http://gigaom.com/cloud/better-medicine-brought-to-you-by-big-data/
Thanks for the link.
