Description

We're teaming up with our portfolio company, Guardant Health, for a two-day hackathon geared towards one thing: beating cancer. Guardant Health, who recently celebrated a huge IPO, is a leading precision oncology company dedicated to helping conquer cancer through their groundbreaking blood tests, vast data sets, and advanced analytics. Their mission is to conquer cancer with data, and a lot of it. Sourcing, consolidating, storing, processing and analyzing this large amount of data while complying with security and regulatory requirements is challenging.

  • Data Quality Measurement and Reporting in a Distributed System
