Dr. Murthy Devarakonda, Opening Keynote Speaker (May 27, 2014)


Murthy Devarakonda, PhD, Opening Ceremony Keynote

Murthy Devarakonda is the Principal Investigator of the project at IBM Research that applies Watson technologies to patient medical record analysis. The goal of the project is to study how Watson’s natural language processing and semantic reasoning can be applied to meet the cognitive challenges of physicians in treating patients. In collaboration with major hospitals, the project is developing new algorithms and system designs for problem-oriented patient record summarization and natural language question-answering on patient record contents.

 Murthy’s long and multidisciplinary research at IBM involves transforming results of data analysis into foundational observations which lead to new applications and system designs. Prior to joining the Watson team he has applied this methodology to create transformative designs and algorithms in warehouse scale data center optimization, cloud computing, and distributed systems. Murthy is a frequent speaker at academic venues and often presents latest Watson research results and innovations to IBM clients. He received his Ph.D. in computer science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is an ACM Distinguished Engineer.
