Thrival Festival: Big Data & You

Yesterday, I took part in the “Big Data & You” panel at Pittsburgh’s Thrival Innovation & Music Festival.

The panel also included Dr. Rasu Shrestha, Chief Innovation Officer, UPMC Enterprises; Dr. Amesh Adalja, Senior Associate, UPMC Center for Health Security; and Saman Haqqi, President of Pittsburgh Dataworks and Program Director at IBM’s Watson Group. Our terrific moderator was Jay Srini, Chief Information Officer, Kew Group.

It was a fascinating discussion and I was excited to be a part of it. Here’s the Powerpoint I used:

Yesterday’s other panels and discussions were equally interesting, including “This is Old News: Innovation in Traditional Media” and “Creative Chaos: Diversity and Innovation.” If you’re in the Pittsburgh area this week, check out Thrival Festival’s schedule. This year’s event runs through Sunday, Sept. 27.
