The Annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo is being on May 23-25, 2017 in Boston, MA. At this conference, Kristophe Diaz, Scientific Program Manager at Cohen Veterans Bioscience, and David King, Founder and CEO of Exaptive Inc., will discuss the Cognitive Network platform during the session, Collaborative Science: Platforms & Software Tools For Decision Management & Data Sharing.
There is increasing agreement in the scientific community that the difficult problems we are trying to solve today will require collaboration across large teams of researchers. This talk will explore a new approach to data analytics called the cognitive network which is aimed at facilitating innovation at a broader level.
As a collaborative effort between Cohen Veterans Bioscience and Exaptive Inc., the Cognitive Network platform will create an interconnected research community in which researchers can use the Exaptive Xap Builder to create interactive data applications that can analyze data collected in Cohen Veterans Bioscience’s data repository.
