Allon Bloch, Founder and CEO of K Health, spoke at Data Driven NYC in January 2019. He shared how K Health is building a better information layer in the personal health space. They look at “People Like Me” (PLM) characteristics and use those to train models. He also talked about how K Health has ingested 80M doctor’s notes and tied them all in together to train machines through oncology to build a differential diagnosis. He predicts that in five years, you’ll be talking to a machine for 80% of your health issues.

Data Driven NYC is a monthly event covering Big Data and data-driven products and startups, hosted by Matt Turck (FirstMark Partner) and Jack Cohen (Platform) at FirstMark Capital.
