Define and Drive AI science leadership: Computational Methods for Next Generation Healthcare

AAEOY Speaker Series

AAEOY (Asian American Engineer of the Year) is an annual recognition event on the national platform to honor the most distinguished Asian American professionals with their leadership, technical achievements and remarkable public services.

AAEOY was first introduced in 2002, with a total 304 awardees to date. The awardees have served as role models and sources of inspiration for the STEM community. Past awardees included Nobel Laureates, academic scholars, key corporate executives, and an astronaut!

AAEOY 2020 was delayed by the Covid 19. The AAEOY committee decided to invite past awardees to share their technical knowledge and experience in the AAEOY Speaker Series at this challenging moment till the award ceremony can take place!

Speaker: Jianying Hu, Ph.D. IBM Fellow; Global Science Leader, AI for Healthcare.

  1. Presentation: Define and Drive AI science leadership - Computational Methods for Next Generation Healthcare
  2. Interview: Career Journey - A Female Leader in STEM Fields
  3. Q&A

Date And Time

Sat, May 15, 2021

1:30 PM – 3:00 PM PDT


Next-generation healthcare will be driven by prevention and treatment strategies that take individual variability into consideration. Much of this variability is captured in the large amount of data of different types: clinical encounters, lab results, diagnostics, medications, genomics, physiological, lifestyle, social behavioral, etc. Speaker will discuss these methodologies, use cases, lessons learned and important future directions.
