National Library of Medicine Informatics Lecture Series

The Institute of Medicine has argued for more than 20 years that we should view every patient interaction as an (uncontrolled) experiment, and learn from its outcome. Dr. Szolovits has been a participant in numerous collaborative projects, trying to apply this method to data about a broad range of patients suffering from conditions such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, autism, depression. In this lecture, he will review some of the methodological challenges he has encountered and the hard-won lessons he has learned. These include the careful formulation of study goals, the importance of open data, what kinds of models to build, how to extract meaning from narrative text, and how to incorporate non-traditional sources of data into a research protocol. Dr. Szolovits will also describe a largely unsuccessful effort to ease the data collection burden in health care by having computerized speech understanding systems listen to and analyze conversations between doctors and patients.

This is the final seminar of the 2014 Deputy Director for Management (DDM) Seminar Series. To receive credit for watching the videocast, you need to register for the event in LMS on the morning of the event. The seminar will feature speaker, Dr. Dan Ariely. Dr. Ariely is the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling books, “Predictably Irrational,” “The Upside of Irrationality,” and “The Honest Truth About Dishonesty.”

One of the challenges of human life is that what is good for us right now is often not the fun choice, even though it's good for us in the long term. Dieting, for example, is not so much fun now, but good for the future. Saving money is not fun now but good for the future. This applies to other things, such as getting medical testing or sitting down to write a long report. When we face such tradeoffs we often focus on the short term rather than our long term goals, and in the process get ourselves into trouble. But wait! There is hope! By understanding where we fall short, there are methods we can use to overcome our natural (and less than desirable) inclinations in order to become happier and more productive people.

Dr. Dan Ariely has spent his career researching interesting questions that explain complex (and sometimes irrational) human behavior. Dr. Ariely is the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University. He is a founding member of the Center for Advanced Hindsight and the author of the New York Times bestselling books, "Predictably Irrational," "The Upside of Irrationality," and "The Honest Truth About Dishonesty." In 2013, Bloomberg recognized Dr. Ariely as one of the Top 50 Most Influential Thinkers. He also has a bi-weekly advice column in the Wall Street Journal called "Ask Ariely."
