MCRI's Biomedical Informatics Research Center will be leading a workshop entitled “Big data analytics-as-a-Service: Architecture, Algorithms, and Applications in Health Informatics” on August 14, 2017 at the Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining's (KDD) 23nd annual conference. As part of the Association for Computing Machinery, KDD is the world’s largest and oldest community for data mining, data science, and analytics. The conference will take place August 13-17, 2017 in Halifax, Canada. The event connects the world’s best data scientists with one another to share, discuss, address, and advance the application of data science, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to benefit all aspects of our society.

“Each and every year, the best data thinkers come together at KDD, present their latest work and findings and discuss how to approach the greatest opportunities and challenges that knowledge discovery and data mining are the key to tapping into and solving. No other conference brings these leaders together as closely in an altruistic way dedicated to the evolution and output of the profession. KDD also continues to stand out as the launch pad for some of data science’s foundational technologies and breakthroughs. We are proud of that unique distinction,” said Mohak Shah, General Chair, KDD.
