Session Abstract – PMWC 2017 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Data aggregation and data sharing efforts exist all over the world yet there is no platform or ecosystem that brings all of these efforts together. What are the challenges of creating a universal approach to data sharing (such as Cancer Moonshot) versus private and/or proprietary approaches that are trying to differentiate themselves? In this session you will hear from industry leaders who have direct experience in the world of data sharing and data aggregation. You will get a better understanding of the true challenges behind data sharing efforts and what it will take to create a universal movement that will benefit all stakeholders.
