Reality Check: Augmented Intelligence is the Future of Healthcare

What was once science fiction is now reality – technology has the ability to match (and surpass) the power of the human brain. There are numerous advantages to augmented and artificial intelligence (AI), and many industries are already leveraging it. In the realm of healthcare, AI can provide benefits ranging from streamlined patient care and increased physician productivity to a greater understanding of genetic, biologic and behavioral patterns. But, what does AI mean for the next generation of medical devices? What are medical device companies considering when they weigh the possibilities of applying embedded intelligence into their products? In this second session of our four-part DeviceConnect series, you’ll hear from experts in the Puget Sound region who are exploring the potential of AI for medical technology.

While the Pacific Northwest is well-known as a hub of innovation and breakthrough technology, developing and commercializing successful medical devices can be daunting. Starting in November, Life Science Washington, in partnership with Product Creation Studio, is launching DeviceConnect a four-part event series. At each event, you’ll gain insight into emerging philosophies and trends. You’ll have the chance to network with your industry peers and meet potential collaborators. The series will feature medical device experts that will share their experiences bringing a medical device to market. You’ll learn about potential pitfalls and best practices that impact the commercialization of innovative medical devices. Whether your organization is a nimble startup or an enterprise looking to inspire and improve your product development processes, you’re sure to gain value from The DeviceConnect Series. 


This series is designed for anyone involved in driving innovation success at device companies including: executive management (C-suite); VP's and Directors of R&D, Engineering and Product; Product Managers and Program Managers.
