Wisdom, Big Data, Healthcare are broad and deep issues impacting our world. I am so pleased to announce the publication of my chapter “On the Road to Ephesus: Data-based wisdom and healthcare” in the book Strategic Data-Based Wisdom in the Big Data Era.
The chapter is dedicated to Dr. Howard I. Scher and the staff of Memorial Sloan Kettering for their dedicated work and care of my husband Richard H. Wexler who lost his battle with cancer in December 2014. Richard read the chapter and encouraged me to continue my interest in the potential of big data. I feel strongly that psychologists — with their understanding of cognition, affect, and interpersonal dynamics — should team up with data analysts. Together more meaning-making and wisdom may be possible.
I hope you enjoy the chapter!!!
