How Artificial Intelligence (AI) enables truly Personalized Health: tracing behaviors and deep patterns

sanjivrai_faceDear col­league,

We are proud to add a new pio­neer­ing per­spec­tive to the already impres­sive Speak­er Ros­ter at the upcom­ing 2016 Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit: Rein­vent­ing Brain Health in the Dig­i­tal Age (Decem­ber 6–8th).

San­jiv Rai, named a Young Glob­al Leader by the World Eco­nom­ic Forum and founder of, will dis­cuss How Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence (AI) enables tru­ly Per­son­al­ized Health: trac­ing behav­iors and deep pat­terns. You should know that his fir­m’s arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence sys­tem, while orig­i­nal­ly designed to improve health­care, has accu­rate­ly pre­dict­ed the win­ner of the last 3 US nation­al elec­tions (yes, includ­ing the last one) through com­pre­hen­sive pro­cess­ing of mul­ti­ple streams of online data.

Imag­ine the poten­tial of such a sys­tem to diag­nose, pre­vent and treat prob­lems, and to pro­mote per­son­al­ized brain health and men­tal health.

Reminder: Since this is a ful­ly vir­tu­al event, it requires no trav­el. Please con­sid­er join­ing us to explore and dis­cuss the lat­est with San­jiv and oth­er excep­tion­al Speak­ers, includ­ing…
