Mobile Monday Grand Rapids Explores Big Data

Mobile Technology Association of Michigan’s Grand Rapids chapter of Mobile Monday Michigan is set to explore Big Data and how to effectively analyze it and use it to increase productivity, sales, profitability and other key performance indicators for business

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Mobile Monday Grand Rapids will tackle Big Data at the organization’s upcoming event on May 15th at 5:30 p.m. taking place at Priority Health in Grand Rapids. Featured speaker will be Eric Kort, Research Scientist at the DeVos Cardiovascular Research Program of Spectrum Health and Van Andel Institute, and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Michigan State University.

Mr. Kort will explore data-driven approaches to bio-medical research, specifically, how next generation sequencing technologies continue to ramp up the speed at which data is flowing out of the cells that make up our bodies and that by integrating billions of data points we can discover new treatments, gain new understanding of human diseases and much more.

The event is FREE to attend but advance registration is required at Refreshments will be served courtesy of our host/sponsor Priority Health for those who would like to network ahead of the presentations.
