Chalapathy Neti

Director & Global Leader of Healthcare Transformation IBM Research

Chalapathy is another hardcore scientist with degrees in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering. His day job is leading research in perceptual computing, speech recognition and multi-modal conversational systems for information interaction. And if that wasn’t enough to convince you he’s IBM’s central intelligence for health IT, he’s also one of the key thought leaders on the stunning implications that IBM’s Jeopardy-winning AI system Watson could have in health care. Chalapathy is also an integral force behind the $100m effort IBM announced last year to extract evidence from health data, generate new processes and move the health care system to focusing on improving outcomes.
