Q: What has been your best experience at TG so far?
A: There's been many experiences all over the world in the last 10 years, and each one is unique, challenging, and wonderful. But surely Will and I had a great great time in Spain.
Also, Will and I did a theater show in front of lots of healthcare executives in Boston when we first presented HealthLX as a platform for the future that was going to guarantee that marriages were going to survive. TG was only about 4 people at that time. We felt stronger than the Packers on a full moon playing against the Patriots.
Q: What technologies have you worked with or enjoyed working with?
A: HealthLX, more than the technology it was the idea and adventure. Talend has been a nice trip for sure, mostly because of the multiple technologies that are within and how they work together in the heart of it. Talend overall for the end user is so simple.
Q: What tech trends excite you the most for 2020?
A: The impact of Machine Learning, being able to finally democratize the usage of math into something practical and incredibly powerful. Data is the food that math has been always craving. I believe this will transform health care and push the world into a “Jetsons” age very quick, but instead of being dependent on many complicated machines, we will finally be able to materialize the principles of current devices and put energy into smaller ones that will help lead the way to unlock human’s self power to heal.
