When & Where
O'Reilly Media, Inc.
O’Reilly Media is followed by venture capitalists, business analysts, news pundits, tech journalists, and thought leaders because we have a knack for knowing what’s important now and what will be important next—and the ability to articulate the seminal narratives about emerging and game-changing technologies.
We don’t say this to brag. We say it to make a point: we’re not easily hypnotized by hype. We’ve seen the bubbles build and burst. For over three decades, we’ve been tapping into a deep network of alpha geeks and thought leaders to recognize the truly disruptive technologies amidst the fluff. So when we invest in an event, we’re not just following the hype, we’re committed to creating a community around an issue we believe is transformative.
Big data is transforming and disrupting healthcare. The challenges and opportunities of this disruption are immense and exciting.
O’Reilly’s events forge new ties between industry leaders, raise awareness of technology issues we think are interesting and important, and crystallize the critical issues around emerging technologies. Understanding these emerging technologies—and how they will transform healthcare—has never been so important.
