How to Change Healthcare: Michael Goldsby at TEDxChapmanU

Described as “an innovative scientist with the pragmatism of a business entrepreneur,” Michael Goldsby, Ph.D., counts more than 20 years in the commercial software industry. During those decades, he successfully co-founded four startups, held leadership positions with organizations as varied as Disney, Veritas Scientific and Qualcomm, and earned multiple software innovation awards.

Currently, Goldsby is co-founder and chief technology officer of Jointly Health, an innovative new software company that provides an advanced analytics platform for the healthcare industry. His academic works—and his passion—have provided new insights into nonlinear dynamic systems by applying unique distributed machine learning techniques to real-time sensor data combined with traditional data sources.

Over the last decade he has dedicated himself to health informatics research, investigating the intersection of translational bioinformatics with “new health data.” His doctoral work explored the use of distributed analytics for application in ultra-scale sensing. Goldsby holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
