Mobilizing Biomedical Computable Knowledge

Ann Arbor MI 01-15-2019 01-15-2019

We stand on the brink of the new knowledge revolution. As the quantity of knowledge has exploded exponentially, the current means for representing knowledge—words and pictures that must be interpreted by humans—have reached their limits. Our ability to use the ever-growing body of scientific, biomedical knowledge rests on efforts to transform how knowledge is expressed into abstract models that can inform action through computation. This persistent computable knowledge is the “Keystone” that holds the Learning Cycle Together. At the LHS Collaboratory Seminar Series event on Tuesday, January 15, learn about the movement underway to promote the advancement of computable biomedical knowledge. Join Rachel Richesson, PhD, MPH, from Duke University, along with colleagues from the University of Michigan to hear more about the movement and ways to join the community!
