The Precision Convergence Webinar Series is co-hosted by The McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE) at McGill University and The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, a joint computational research center between Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.
Precision convergence (PC) expands upon precision medicine to the many facets of precision targeting embedded in modern society, be these targeting the person’s behavior, product/service design, professional practices, manufacturing processes, investment, system design, or policy. We propose precision convergence (PC) as an approach to science and action to tap into the power of human and machine intelligence, creativity and empathy for transformation at scale. The precision convergence series catalyzes unique synergy between novel partnerships across sciences, sectors and jurisdictions around targeted domains of real-world solutions and a next generation convergence of AI with advanced research computing and other data and digital architectures.
