Robert J. Alexander


Robert Alexander graduated summa cum laude in Medicine and Surgery and practiced research at the intersection of general surgery and bioinformatics before joining IBM back in 1986. His dual practice of both IT and clinical practice and research enables him to bridge the needs of the latter and the capabilities of the former, acting as a cultural mediator. Currently he’s very active applying natural language processing and machine learning to medical applications. His latest passion is using Design Thinking to generate human centred ideas to solve health and social problems.
