Life Sciences Group Meeting
Tuesday, September 27, 2016
7:30am - 10:30am
Philadelphia Country Club
It is a very exciting time to be in the healthcare space with the emergence of innovative technologies and new data sources that help to address global needs for better health outcomes, lower costs of care and a greater quality of life across populations. IBM Watson is at the epicenter of this transformation, just a short 5 years removed from defeating not one, but two, to Jeopardy champions.
Since then IBM has worked with healhcare providers like the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, developing technology that assist with cancer diagnosis and treatment, while others are looking to integrate Watson into broader clinical decision support applications that can identify a wide range of illnesses.
This program will provide insights regarding where IBM Watson is today, as well as where it is going in the future, to address healthcare challenges and should not be missed. We will also continue our tradition of networking both before and after the presentation, and there will be a buffet breakfast. It is going to be a great morning, please register as soon as possible as we want to be able to accommodate all members interested in attending.
