SYMPOSIUM - THE DIGITAL DOCTOR: HEALTH CARE IN AN AGE OF AI AND BIG DATA


Medicine and health care, like other aspects of life in the 21st century, are being reshaped by computational science, big data, and information technology. Given gigabytes of personal genomic data, therapies can be tailored to the individual patient and the individual disease. Standardized electronic health records create an information resource that improves decision making in the doctor’s office and also sheds light on health status across entire populations. Machine learning and artificial intelligence may soon augment the physician’s diagnostic skills. As these innovations promise to improve health and prolong lives, however, they also raise sticky economic and ethical questions. Many new medical interventions come at a fabulous price; can we assure equitable access to them? How do we preserve privacy and personal dignity when the “healing arts” become a high-tech enterprise? This symposium will explore these questions and more.

SYMPOSIUM - DATA DOLLARS AND ALGORITHMS: THE COMPUTATIONAL ECONOMY

You buy lunch from a food truck and pay by waving your cell phone; before you’ve finished your sandwich, the transaction is posted to your bank account. This is an example of how computer technology lubricates the economy. At a deeper level, computation is also essential to many aspects of financial engineering—portfolio selection, risk management, high-speed trading, the design of new market mechanisms such as online auctions, and even algorithms for the donation and exchange of human organs. With Bitcoin, money itself has become a computational object. And yet there remain pitfalls in economic life that algorithmic methods have so far failed to overcome. We still struggle to forecast and control macroeconomic cycles of boom and bust and to deal with inequities of wealth distribution. Merely measuring the state of the economy (productivity, employment, inflation) is slow and imprecise. Can abundant data and computational power play a role in improving this situation?
