Next presentation: The global use of digital technologies has resulted in an unprecedented availability of digital data. If properly mined and filtered, these data can be combined with environmental, socioeconomic and epidemiologic data for understanding disease and health patterns, as well as the relationship between human behavior and disease spread. In this talk, Dr. Nsoesie will discuss the nascent field of digital epidemiology and present examples on the use of digital data (e.g., social media, Internet news, business and product reviews) and machine learning for monitoring infectious diseases, unsafe food products and risk factors for obesity.
