Dave Kale was a fourth-year PhD student in Computer Science, working on learning latent space representations of health and illness from multimodal clinical data, including sensor time series, lab tests, text, and codes. His advisor was Professor Greg Ver Steeg of the Information Sciences Institute.
Most recently, Dave was among a small number of researchers investigating whether deep neural networks, which represent the state of the art in a variety of applications, can be successfully applied to clinical data and problems.
Dave was affiliated with the Laura P. and Leland K. Whittier Virtual Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (VPICU) at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the USC Center for Body Computing. He is a co-founder of Podimetrics and was a judge in the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE Competition.
Dave holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Symbolic Systems and a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Stanford University.
