The world of precision medicine is evolving at a breakneck pace. Healthcare and biotech organizations are in the early stages of applying rapid advancements in medical science and information technology to ground breaking bio-medical research and clinical decision support.  Effectively and efficiently managing the exponential growth of data is emerging as the biggest obstacle to accelerated insights and adoption.  New technologies such as whole genome, single-cell sequencing and liquid biopsy are accelerating the data growth and compute challenge. Novel ways to acquire, store and analyze medical imaging, pathology and cardiovascular data at a higher-resolution and frequency in vendor-neutral format open floodgates for advanced imaging analytics. The need to integrate and analyze clinical data extends medical informatics into high-performance information integration, analytics and deep learning.

In this exclusive session we will discuss how organizations can develop a data platform strategy that will:
- deliver higher performance computational informatics leveraging cloud and accelerated technologies,
- control the cost and optimize constrained budgets especially for rapidly expanding data storage requirements
- provide an easy-to-use and collaborative platform that leverages software defined algorithms for resource and workload optimization and is "AI ready"
 
IBM has been refining this High Performance Data and AI framework for the last five years and is eager to share the experience, approaches, solutions and most importantly, the best practice and lesson learned from developing an deploying the architecture.   In this hands-on workshop we’ll use real-life projects to illustrate how we can boost genomics throughput by 10-100X, save storage cost for genomics and imaging by 60-90%, retire the “human API and job scheduler”, and enable parallel discovery from a single lab to global R&D powerhouse.
