Highlights of “Data Science in Biomechanics” Thematic Session at ISB 2017

The Mobilize Center organized the thematic session on “Data Science in Biomechanics” at the 26th Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) in July. The thematic session generated a lot of interest with over 160 people in attendance. The talks highlighted various data science topics including: 1) how large data from wearables, clinics, and research labs are leading to new actionable insights, and 2) how data science tools can help generate new knowledge that conventional statistical methods may miss.
