Our ability to generate nearly limitless amounts of data has grown much faster than our ability to parse the meaning of that data. Yet buried in all that information are clues to everything from how to prevent tuberculosis to how to cut health care costs.

While DNA sequencing has long held big data’s starring role, today Harvard Public Health researcher are also applying Big Data techniques to everything from tracking the spread of disease to connecting air pollution’s effects on life expectancy, improving response capabilities during humanitarian emergencies, and measuring disease risk factors and health outcomes.

Some believe Big Data’s paradigm-shifting potential is comparable to the invention of the microscope. Learn from HSPH faculty at this year’s Leadership Summit how Big Data will have a Big Impact on the world’s health in the future.
