Please join us for a lecture sponsored by the NIH Office of the Associate Director for Data Science in conjunction with the National Library of Medicine. Dr. Andrew Moore will discuss some of the big developments in computer science from the perspective of someone crossing over from industry to academia. He will talk about roadmaps for AI-based consumer and advice products in the commercial world and contrast with some of the potentially viable roadmaps in healthcare. Dr. Moore will also touch on entity stores (aka knowledge graphs), question answering and ultra-large data center architectures. Please visit the event page at for more information.
