UCLA Relies on Breakthrough ‘Big Data’ Technology from IBM To Help Patients with Traumatic Brain Injuries

    IBM, Excel Medical and UCLA tackle big data in efforts to uncover
    preventative treatments for patients with traumatic brain injuries
    (TBIs). Dr. Xiao Hu, associate professor at the UCLA Department of
    Neurosurgery, analyzes brain wave data to predict the rise of deadly
    brain pressure as part of a National Institute of Neurological
    Disorders and Stroke study, Tuesday, March 26, 2013 in Los Angeles,
    Calif.. Knowing in advance that brain pressure could potentially rise
    in TBI patients gives doctors more time to prevent further brain
    damage or death. The Centers for Disease Control estimates 1.7 million
    people in the United States sustain TBIs every year. (Greg
