Knowledgent, with our partners Hortonworks and the CEOi, are hosting a free webinar titled “Leveraging Big Data in Addressing the Global Alzheimer’s Crisis” on Thursday, May 29 from 12-1pm EST.

This webinar is not just for folks in the life sciences industry. It presents an interesting ideation case study for anyone interested in big data, using datasets from seemingly unrelated fields and sources, or understanding new potential ways to diagnose Alzheimer’s and improve patient care.
