A futuristic computer to revolutionize personal medicine

To get small with medicine, this “Machine” will have to get big — really, really, really big.

A major research project backed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise aims, among other things, to one day help doctors tailor medical treatment for individual patients by quickly crunching data from massive amounts of patient information — related to genes, diseases, personal behaviors and treatment history — assembled from around the world.

 Dubbed The Machine, the project represents more than half of the research efforts of Hewlett Packard Labs, the R&D arm of HPE.

“It’s our biggest and most ambitious research project,” said Jaap Suermondt, vice president of software and analytics at Hewlett Packard Labs.
