"From the hype of Health Big Data & AI to the real world - Porto has one the most advanced solutions in the world"

There is a lot of hype around Big Data & AI but few concrete examples exist, specifically in healthcare. At São João Hospital exists one of the most outstanding examples in the world related to the concrete application of AI & Advanced Analytics over Hospital Big Data in order to save patients lives. This platform is working live, 24/7, helping doctors and nurses to automatically identify and promptly alert to patients at risk in several areas (clinical deterioration, infection, antibiotics,..). How are we preparing this platform to support the Data Driven Medicine of the future?
