SIVOTEC SVP Dr. Michael Bergeron chaired a very timely and well-received scientific session, "Advanced Analytics in Sport Neuroscience and Brain Health" at the Society for Brain Mapping & Therapeutics World Congress. Central to the Society's theme of "Breaking Boundaries of Science, Technology, Medicine, Art, and Healthcare Policy," the Congress focused on innovation, translation, integration, and commercialization of neuro-technologies.
The SIVOTEC symposium emphasized select positive aspects of regular exercise and fitness on brain health and activity-dependent neuroplasticity. This was followed by potential concerns on adolescent brain health with Sport participation, and how advanced technology platforms can be diagnostically revealing across sport and athlete development, as well as the post-concussion period to resolve. The session closed with an emphasis on pulling it together with an advanced analytics / predictive modeling solution and commercializing neuroscience and brain health knowledge.
Other panelists included Todd A. Maugans, M.D., Chief, Division of Neurosurgery Nemours Children's Hospital, Orlando, Florida; Vernon Williams, M.D., Director, Kerlan-Jobe Center for Sports Neurology, Los Angeles, California; Taghi Khoshgoftaar, Ph.D., Chair and professor of the Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Florida Atlantic University and the Director of the National Science Foundation Big Data Training and Research Laboratory, and Pete Martinez, President & CEO of SIVOTEC Analytics.
The Congress took place in Los Angeles, California, from April 13-15, 2018, and brought together physicians, scientists, policy makers, funding agencies, and industry innovators as a showcase of the vast array of all aspects of brain science, brain research, therapies, and the treatment of brain and spinal cord injuries and diseases.

Pete Martinez & Luis Pintado at University of Miami Conference on December 4-5, 2017
The University of Miami Center for Computational Science (UMCCS) 2nd Annual Big Data Conference and Workshop, December 4-5, 2017 has invited SIVOTEC's Pete Martinez and Luis Pintado to participate as panel moderator and workshop facilitator respectively, during this 2-day event targeting private- and public-sector healthcare providers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, educators, and researchers.
Martinez will moderate a distinguished panel discussion on the first day of the conference, "Enabling Big Data and Analytics in Your Organization" with panelists including Jeff Hutchins of Coca-Cola, Luis Gidel of Baptist Health South Florida, Matthew Pape of Ryder, Sol Rashidi of Royal Caribbean and Nadine Davey-Rogers of MasterCard.
Luis Pintado will co-facilitate an interactive workshop on the second day entitled, "Business, Strategy, and Data Analytics," alongside Joseph Johnson, PhD of the University of Miami School of Business Administration. Attendees will delve deeper into learning how to enable data science in their organizations.
Pintado remarked, "Empowering organizations to effectively capture, aggregate, analyze, and quite frankly, capitalize on their data is vital to not only staying competitive in the market, but to creating an edge. When properly architected and organized, captured data provides increasingly valuable insight. Organizations must continue to evolve with the changing needs of their customers. This is our passion, and we couldn't be happier to participate in this dialogue and to help companies on the path to turning their data into knowledge."
