VEDA Labs

VEDA Labs Mission Statement

World-changing scientific breakthroughs historically follow long periods of accurate data collection. With the invention of the telescope, many were able to collect precise data detailing the movement of celestial bodies. Afterwards, Leibniz and Newton invented calculus to describe these observations.  

In 2013, IBM estimated that 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are generated on a daily basis and 90% of accessible data was generated within the previous two years alone. With each passing year, this statistic becomes further and further from today’s reality as a gross underestimate. As scientists, we are in an ideal position to harness this data to understand more about the systems that produce them.

“VEDA Labs seeks to be a leader in interdisciplinary research as a scientific response to the world’s data revolution. The purpose of VEDA Labs is to rethink industry-standard approaches to data prediction by bringing together a diverse set of scientific fields that have been independently asking these questions for years, from network niche construction in mathematics to collective decision making in psychology.”

VEDA Labs discovers the mechanisms that drive open-ended complex systems, which includes behavior in the healthcare world. How exactly does an a single entity’s behavior (such as a person’s decisions) affect the behavior of a whole system (such as a provider network)? Would it be possible to “reprogram” a system’s behavior based on the knowledge of its individual agents?
