The Importance of Data Representation: New Tools for Large Scale Knowledge Modelling
By Steve Gardner, CEO,
Biolauncher and RowAnalytics
Speaker for our 4th Annual Symposium:
Talk time: 3:00 pm 27.3.2014
Talk abstract: "The volume and diversity of life science and healthcare data have created huge data integration challenges. Technologies such as federation and warehousing allowed us to manage volume but didn't give us the ability to respond flexibly to change or to routinely create novel insights from those data. In part this is due to imperfect recording and understanding of the context of the data and in part due to the representations we use. This talk will explore some of the historical and future approaches to large-scale semantic data integration and look at new graph and geometrical approaches to large scale knowledge modelling."
