Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, founder of NantWorks, describes his vision for turning cancer into a chronic but controllable disease by using advanced rapid gene sequencing, supercomputing and other methods of analysis to transcend the genome to the proteome. This approach has the potential to redefine how cancer is diagnosed and to develop therapies precisely tailored to the molecular profile of a particular tumor. Dr. Soon-Shiong anticipates a revolution in drug research, development and delivery of molecularly designed cancer treatments to patients.

This CARTA series explores the evolution of "Theory of Mind" (ToM), the ability to impute mental states such as beliefs, desires, and intentions to oneself and others, and how ToM makes us uniquely human. Elizabeth Spelke (Harvard Univ) begins with a discussion about What Makes Humans Different?, followed by Jason Mitchell (Harvard Univ) on Brain Imaging Studies, and Michael Arbib (Univ of Southern California) on Mirror Neurons and More. Recorded on 10/18/2013.

Where should Police vehicles, fire trucks and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) ambulances be positioned in an increasingly mobile society? Currently over 75% of 911 calls are made by mobile phones, compared to less than 5% over a decade ago. Over 22 million American patients are transported every year to Emergency Departments by calling 911. Who will call 911 next and why? What patterns of 911 calls coupled with environmental, web browsing, call-log, wireless signal routing and social media data can predict optimal Emergency preparedness and response? Recorded on 11/25/2013.

Mobile health (mHealth) technologies allow for the generation of intensive care unit medical information, literally, in the palm of your hand. A smart phone can be transformed into a mobile heart monitor to diagnose atrial fibrillation, and continuous glucose monitoring has revolutionized the way diabetics manage their blood sugar levels. The digitization of human health through noninvasive devices and sensors can provide meaningful measures of individual wellness outside of a clinical environment. This information can then be used to guide health decisions - or personalize medicine. However, mHealth data presents a computational challenge as it can be both wide and long (i.e. big data). Furthermore, this challenge can be broken into two components that are both vital to the production of actionable health care: data storage and processing; and its interpretation. It is this latter component that is notoriously omitted in the conversation on big data. This talk will focus on analytical methods designed to interpret information from big data sources. Particularly, this talk will address approaches to analyze data on numerous variables from multiple sources which are serially correlated over time. This investigation is motivated by a recent mHealth study conducted at the Scripps Translational Science Institute designed to assess the relationship between neurocognitive and cardiovascular/pulmonary measurements, and the overall health benefits of meditation.

Discussion of the big data problem of recommending good matches from large databases. In my personal research in the area of music recommendation, solving this problem allows to provide relevant or similar song recommendations, given a user query consisting of one or more seed songs (e.g., playlist generation for online radio). This big data problem is also core and center to an effort I recently started, to provide academic researchers with access to alternative funding sources, by using data-driven algorithms to match researchers with philanthropists and create long-term engagements. Recorded on 11/25/2013.

Companies (and other large organizations) now routinely collect massive amounts of data on customers/users. This provides new sources of data for social scientists (but also new challenges). In this talk I will present examples on how social scientists, e.g..,economists, psychologists and sociologists, can learn from large transactional databases. For example, it is well known from controlled lab studies in cognitive psychology that humans suffer a cognitive decline with age (after adulthood is reached). Are these age-related cognitive differences strong enough that they manifest in mundane choices of our daily lives such as choices made in the grocery store? Recorded on 11/25/2013.

Healthcare quality is an important concern for our country today, with important economic implications. However, it is difficult to judge quality at the patient level, given the wide variation in patient health status on baseline. When bad outcomes occur, it is difficult to say if the outcomes are due to patients' baseline status ("they were too sick to be saved") or reflect a true provider competence and quality problem. Therefore, quality can best be judged at the population level with big data, when similar patients are compared together and tracked over time and across hospitals. Recorded on 11/25/2013.
