  TEDMED Live: How Can Big Data Become Real Wisdom  
(VTC)

TEDMED is a multidisciplinary community of innovators and leaders who share a common determination to create a better future in health and medicine. This program features brilliant short talks and stunning artistic performances that celebrate the power of unexpected connections to create important new possibilities. Join the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute on April 16-19 as we live broadcast this year's TEDMED program in our third-floor conference center.

Speakers for this session include:

Amy Abernethy
Palliative care oncologist, patient advocate, and former NASA programmer Amy Abernethy focuses on the intersection of big data and patient rights.

Michael E. Porter
Harvard economist Michael E. Porter champions using competitive strategy to increase value. But how do we define value in healthcare? He reveals his definition and what he's doing to promote it.

Larry Smarr
Astrophysicist turned computer scientist Larry Smarr is the patient of the future. He will reveal how charting his bodily inputs and outputs in minute detail is changing medicine from the outside-in.

Deborah Estrin
What might we expect from next-gen mobile health? Computer scientist and networked sensing pioneer Deborah Estrin shares her insights.
