WisBusiness: The Podcast with Jignesh Patel, UW-Madison professor of computer sciences

This week’s episode of “WisBusiness: The Podcast” features a discussion with Jignesh Patel, a computer sciences professor at UW-Madison.

He discusses the role of computer sciences in Wisconsin’s biggest industries, explaining how agriculture, manufacturing and health care are being transformed as technology becomes more widespread.

“Every sector of our economy is now becoming data-driven [but] in many cases we are still in very early days,” he said. “You act on what the data is telling you now based on patterns that you’ve inferred, from collecting and learning… you can make better decisions, you can make manufacturing much more economical.”
