In an effort to spark collaboration among thought leaders across industry, government and academia, Stanford’s upcoming Big Data in Biomedicine conference is hosting a technical showcase where attendees can browse displays and demos highlighting public and private companies’ innovations related to big data.
Conference organizers are continuing to develop the program, but the current roster of companies committed to participating in the showcase range from industry giants to smaller ventures. Among the participants are multinationals firms, such as Samsung, SAP and General Electric Co. and emerging startups ClusterK, a cloud computing platform; StationX, a developer of software for scientists and clinicians working with genomics data; and Syapse, which aims to bring molecular profiling into standard medical use.
Part networking opportunity and part show-and-tell, the event is a new addition to this year’s conference and will be held on May 21 under a tent on the lawn of the medical school’s Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge. Conference-goers will have a chance to watch demos of biomedical analytical tools and large computing solutions for big data, as well as relevant ontologies that make for very effective information organization and retrieval.
