Protecting the World from Infectious Diseases with Data-Driven Technologies

But while diseases spread fast, knowledge can spread even faster.

This forward-thinking talk delivered by founder & CEO Dr. Kamran Khan will demonstrate how BlueDot is using big data and other AI-driven technologies to track, contextualize, and anticipate infectious disease risks – all with the goal of creating a more resilient planet.

Session address: 207 Queens Quay W, Suite 801b 

BlueDot is on the 8th floor in unit 801b at 207 Queens Quay West. Use the north elevators located beside the security desk (if you make it to the open atrium by sobeys and Tim Horton's, you've gone too far). Once on the 8th floor, walk across the walkway lined with plants and go straight, when you get to the end, turn left. Our entrance is at the end of that hall.
