BIOMEDevice Silicon Valley, a live event slated for December 8-9 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center coupled with several online sessions, will explore the latest technology that is rapidly advancing the delivery of patient care and driving the future of healthcare. Leaders from AliveCor, DesignAbly, Dyad Engineering, Exo, Nēsos, Oracle Corporation, Samsung SDSA, and Stanford University will speak in keynote panel discussions during the live event to explore the integration of AI platforms, big data, and edge computing within healthcare.

“Technology underpins healthcare’s ongoing transformation, and while much of the urgency-driven innovation incited by the pandemic has lessened, society has embraced technology-centric conveniences such as at-home care and digitally-native medical devices,” said Adrienne Zepeda, Group Event Director, BIOMEDevice Silicon Valley, in a news release on the event. “Change of this magnitude requires continued education and forward-thinking, both of which we are proud to offer in excess at this year’s event. The keynote panels in particular host notable leaders and engineers that have first-hand experience integrating new-age technologies into device development design and streamlining processes that help organizations across the healthcare spectrum adapt to changing clinical and patient needs.”     

Added Patrick Bagert, Vice President, AI at Samsung SDSA, and keynote panelist who will share insights as a part of a four-person discussion on December 9: “The most exciting frontier for AI is healthcare, particularly imaging. Putting AI models on medical devices to help diagnose a variety of conditions is within reach and will help get more accurate results to the patient much faster. This will help free up doctors to focus on treatment and help regions in the world that do not have access to the best doctors. I look forward to connecting with my peers at the upcoming event in Silicon Valley.”

AI platforms and next-gen applications are driven by edge, cloud, and hybrid computing modalities that will drive the way digital products for the healthcare system are designed, built, and manufactured. They will also transfer patient care, spanning all areas of healthcare and wellness delivery from prevention to diagnostics and therapy. Ongoing advances in algorithmic research and emerging deep learning techniques will make AI applications to be more efficient. On-device edge computing and further analysis over the cloud will allow AI applications to go deeper and broader in scope. 5G actively supports and improves data availability and reliability, lowers latencies, and radically improves AI services and security. Join our panel of industry experts as they discuss how AI and ML state-of-the-art technology can and will deliver better products for clinicians, health systems, and patients.
