Uri Kartoun, PhD.

Research Staff Member & IBM Master Inventor

Center for Computational Health, IBM Research, Cambridge, MA

I find that working with large data sets of electronic medical records is intriguing. First, there is the potential for discoveries. Second, the research is applied to real patients, so I can potentially improve the situations of real people on a large scale. Third, research projects that involve medical data tend to be complex and large, and I find it enjoyable to be a part of teams that consist of a mixture of expertise—physicians, biostatisticians, computer scientists, and engineers.

In my talk at the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa I will walk through several technologies that I developed and co-developed including MELD-Plus (a new risk assessment scoring system in liver) and EMRBots (widely used virtual medical repositories). Given also the very recent good news of me being appointed as an IBM Master Inventor (October 2019) I will highlight several inventions, including a new type of authentication technique, as well as healthcare related inventions.

About the speaker

Since 2016 I have been a Research Staff Member at the Center for Computational Health at IBM Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Before that I was a research fellow at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital (2013–2016) and a software developer engineer at Microsoft Health Solutions Group (2008–2012). In 2008 I obtained my PhD focused on human-robot collaboration from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel.
