Stefan Thurner was invited to speak at Nanyang Technological University

Stefan Thurner gave a talk on Understanding Co-Morbidity from Nation-Wide Medical Data at the Complexity Community Sharing Session which took place at Complexity Institute, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore on 3 March, 2017. 


We derive co-morbidity networks from nation-wide medical claims data and discuss the potentials of knowing the phenotypic health state of a nation. We discuss the implications in terms of prediction health-trajectories, side effects, genetic origins of pathologies, and the efficiency of the Austrian health care system.
