Vanderbilt Medicine: "Machine Learning in the Cloud" ft. Paul Harris

A new age of human data research has arrived, says computer scientist Paul Harris, PhD, professor of Biomedical Informatics and director of the Office of Research Informatics.

“Just about every health center will by now have collected 10 to 20 years of EHR data, and we have figured out policies and procedures allowing sharing for big clinically derived data assets. Given these large data assets and relatively inexpensive storage and computer costs, we’re currently in a golden age of being able to enable machine learning research at scale. You’re going to see more and more of it and wonderful discoveries made over the next decade.”
