Bob Rogers is chief data scientist for big data solutions at Intel, where he applies his experience solving problems with big data and analytics to help Intel build world-class customer solutions. Prior to joining Intel, Bob was cofounder and chief scientist at Apixio, a big data analytics company for healthcare. There he honed his belief that accurate understanding of patient clinical and genomic data, physician behavior, and the characteristics of the healthcare delivery network are foundational to a better future for healthcare and that big data analytics is essential to driving this transformation.
Bob began his career as an astrophysicist, developing computer models of physical processes near supermassive black holes. He became interested in computational intelligence and incorporated research on artificial neural networks into his academic work. He coauthored the book Artificial Neural Networks: Forecasting Time Series, which led to a 12-year career managing a quantitative futures trading fund based on computer models he developed. In 2006, Bob transitioned into healthcare at Carl Zeiss Meditec, where he was responsible for new product development for the diagnostic device that is the global standard of care for glaucoma. He received his BS in physics at UC Berkeley and his PhD in physics at Harvard.
