At Harvard Business School (HBS), MBA students are pondering a future when robots rule the road. The pioneers of the driverless car movement -- such as Google and Tesla -- are mapping the MBAs a future in which artificial intelligence and robotics will likely impact the entire job market and global economy. David Yoffie, professor of international business administration at HBS, believes such disruptive technologies are now an "essential" part of the b-school landscape. "What I'm trying to teach students is: What can these technologies deliver? And what are the challenges and opportunities for a company that does AI?" he says.
It's kind of a no-brainer that Dr. Keith Dreyer would be among those who lead the advance of artificial intelligence into healthcare. Dreyer is a rare breed, a radiologist who teaches at Harvard Medical School, but he also holds a degree in mathematics and has a doctorate in computer science. So it's fitting that Dreyer serves as the chief data science officer at Partners HealthCare, a healthcare network that includes Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, two of America's most prestigious medical institutions.
The research team at the Center for Clinical Data Science (CCDS) today received the world's first purpose-built AI supercomputer from the all-new portfolio of NVIDIA DGX systems with Volta. CCDS was founded by Massachusetts General Hospital and later joined by Brigham and Women's Hospital, both of which are Harvard Medical School teaching hospitals and founding members of Partners Healthcare. The group, which includes clinicians, researchers, data scientists and product development and translational experts, is working together for an important purpose: advance medicine with artificial intelligence. CCDS has come a long way in a short amount of time. In only eight months -- beginning in December when the center received NVIDIA's first generation DGX-1 AI supercomputer -- CCDS data scientists have successfully trained machines to "see" abnormalities and patterns in medical images.

Big-data is transforming the world. Here you will learn data mining and machine learning techniques to process large datasets and extract valuable knowledge from them. The book is based on Stanford Computer Science course CS246: Mining Massive Datasets (and CS345A: Data Mining). The book, like the course, is designed at the undergraduate computer science level with no formal prerequisites. To support deeper explorations, most of the chapters are supplemented with further reading references.
