Head of vHive presents at The Veterinary Innovation Summit

  • Posted by: Pete Sewell

The Veterinary Innovation Summit is a collision of different ideas, technologies, organizations, and people we are all committed to advancing the future of the veterinary profession. The North American Veterinary Community and Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine have collaborated to create a unique and immersive program that will challenge the status quo while developing a mindset and skillset to thrive in this world of change.

What is Big Data? What Does it Mean to the Practitioner?

Alex Cook will present a workshop on the landscape of big data and how it involves the veterinary practitioner today, and how it will impact the individual and industry in the future. Alex will be presenting some startling examples of how far we’ve come in tracking and surveilling everything from livestock to our own companion animals, and why it’s important to get a grasp on how big data can be used effectively in the moment so that you can be prepared for the future.
