Welcome to episode 271 of the AI in Action podcast, the show where we break down the hype and explore the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.
Powered by Alldus International, our goal is to share with you the insights of technologists and data science enthusiasts to showcase the excellent work that is being done within AI in the United States and Europe.
Today's guest is Erwan Rivet, Chief Technology Officer at Octave Bioscience in California. Octave is developing a comprehensive, first-in-class Care Management Platform. The team has developed novel measurement tools that feed into structured analytical data models, leading to improved decision-making, better outcomes, and lower costs. They are tackling neurodegenerative diseases -- starting with multiple sclerosis (MS). Octave believe that to dramatically improve outcomes, they need to improve care management.
The challenges for MS are significant, the issues are overwhelming and the needs are mostly unmet. That’s why Octave is creating a comprehensive, measurement-driven care management platform for MS. Finally, stakeholders need better information that is highly actionable. Octave’s three layer model of biological, clinical, and economic data combined with sophisticated analytics, contextualization, machine learning and AI provide new insights for physicians, patients, payers and pharma.
In the episode, Erwan will chat about:
The impact Octave are making in the healthcare sector
Interesting projects they are working on within MS and medical imaging
Building and scaling the data science team
The importance of collaboration between data science and data engineering
Day-to-day life and challenges they are solving in the data team
What the future holds for Octave
