The coming conference in Oct is about 3000 attendees in Los Angeles Convention Center. Healthcare and data science are the hot topics in the conference. Here is the conference page: 

Data Science in healthcare is supposed to provide rigorous quantitative training and essential statistical and computing skills necessary to manage and analyze health science data to address important questions in public health and biomedical sciences.

With about 1.2 billion clinical documents being produced in the United States annually, doctors and scientists have a wealth of data to promote their research. Additionally, large amounts of health-related information are made accessible through widespread adoption of wearable computing technology, which opens up new opportunities for better, more informed healthcare.

There are many data mining applications in healthcare:

· Putting wearable monitors on bodies to detect common healthcare issues, like heart or respiratory diseases, using machine learning algorithms

· Decreasing the diagnostic error rate by deep learning algorithms able to retrieve and analyze data and then compare it with given results

· Turning patient care into precision medicine using predictive models

· Advancing pharmaceutical research to find the cure for cancer, using AI to find how normal cellular processes break down, how that leads to disease, and what the potential treatments are

· Optimizing the clinic staff scheduling and reducing the wait times, managing supplies and accounting, and even building efficient action programs for epidemics, such as seasonal flu outbreaks

· Taking the risk out of prescription medicine with a self-learning software system that can check all prescriptions against similar cases in the database and inform the doctor when the prescription contains any deviations from the typical treatment plan

· Reducing hospital readmissions to cut healthcare costs with a smart algorithm that identifies the most at-risk patients and helps coordinate the necessary care

In our IDEAS Southern California Conference 2018, we are honored to have some speakers with the background in healthare. @Matt Chapman, Shilpa Balanand and Damien Benveniste.

· Matt is currently the Manager of Data Engineering at mPulse Mobile, a company providing innovative messaging solutions to Health Care providers.

· Shilpa is an assistant professor in the Department of Information Systems at UCLA, who has co-authored a book titled ‘Business Intelligence in Healthcare with IBM Watson Analytics’, that was published in September 2017.

· Damien is currently a Lead Data Scientist at Rackspace.

What is Business Analyst?

Sep 19, 2018

According to a report by the McKinsey Global Institute, the United States alone could face a shortage of 1.5 million managers and analysts with the knowledge of how to use the analysis of big data to make effective decisions by 2018. 

A business analyst is an expert who has the skills and knowledge in both business  analytics and data sciences, and understands the business needs and IT resources. Successful business analysts have multiple roles, such as to be clear communicators, smooth facilitators, precise analyzers, and team players. Also, the ideal analyst has the versatility of various business functions, such as operations, finance, engineering, technology or architecture. 

Big Data and Data Science in Government

Sep 17, 2018

One of the greatest strengths of big data is its flexibility and universal application to different industries. Similarly to many other industries, big data also have an enormous impact on the government, in the fields of transportation, health care, election,education, and agriculture. IDEAS will be holding a Data Science and AI Conference in Los Angeles Convention Center that will cover these topics. It will attract 200+ speakers and 3000+ attendees.
