Technion Australia is honored to host two of the world’s leaders in STEMM who changed and keep changing our world.
Join us to hear their personal stories and learn about their recent activities.
Professor Kira Radinsky – https://www.kiraradinsky.com – CEO & CTO at Diagnostic Robotics and a visiting professor at the Technion is an Israeli computer scientist, inventor and entrepreneur, specializing in predictive data mining.
She gained recognition after being selected by the MIT Technology Review to the “35 Innovators Under 35” list. Her work was described in the popular press as predicting the first in 130 years outbreak of cholera in Cuba, based on the pattern identified by mining of 150 years of data from various sources: in poor countries, floods within a year after a drought often follow by a cholera outbreak.
While working on her Ph.D. she co-founded a company, SalesPredict, that was acquired by eBay Israel in 2016, where Kira Radinsky worked as chief scientist and the director of data science during 2016–2019.
