A Bereaved Father and His Team of Microsoft Data Scientists Combat Infant Deaths

John Kahan has a poignant photo in his office at Microsoft Corp., where he oversees customer data and analytics. The image shows Kahan, his wife and three daughters celebrating the birth of a boy, his reddish-blond hair hidden by a hat.
