BIG DATA DATA SCIENCE

With the big-data revolution underway, @LarkinLabs has a goal of making useful healthcare data both relevant to research and accessible to those wanting to make a difference in their own life or on a global scale.

WHY THE STUDIES?

With our big data and data science efforts we have allowed for not only the building of intelligent medical systems with focus at clinical decision support but also at the integration of the many already existing datasets which are currently underused or left unstudied.

WHAT IS BIG DATA?

“Big data is a term that describes the large volume of data – both structured and unstructured – that inundates a business on a day-to-day basis. But it’s not the amount of data that’s important. It’s what organizations do with the data that matters.” www.sas.com/en_us/insights/big-data/what-is-big-data.html

WHAT IS DATA SCIENCE?

“One way to consider data science is as an evolutionary step in interdisciplinary fields like business analysis that incorporate computer science, modeling, statistics, analytics, and mathematics.” http://datascience.nyu.edu/what-is-data-science/

Big data studies and data science involvement by our community healthcare centers and applied facilities will allow for great improvements in population and individual health. Our goal at @LarkinLabs is not to take this on alone, we look forward to the involvement of healthcare centers and data scientists alike.

For more information on how @LarkinLabs is creating a mass impact on global healthcare by means of big data, please contact us and we’ll look forward to detailing the benefits and possibilities.
