On Tuesday, February 7, expert insight into stretchable electronics will kickstart the morning at the 6th annual Wearable Tech + Digital Health + NeuroTech Conference.
The conference, sponsored by ApplySci, will take place at Stanford University. Topics will center on factors driving the health sensor revolution and include predictive health, adaptive medicine, novel sensors, robotics, VR, and machine learning.
Rather than concentrating on the current products on the market (and the widely accepted value propositions and use cases of sensors today), the conference aims to look forward. The sessions will “focus on what’s next.”
Speakers range from professors to investors, who will share thoughts from the whole ecosystem of digital health: from concept inception to universal adoption. Unity Stoakes of Startup Health, Tom Insel of Verily, Phillip Alveda of DARPA, Vinod Khosla of Khosla Ventures, and Zhenan Bao of Stanford are just a few of the innovators in the lineup. Talks include the proliferation of wearables in sports, explorations in self healing “electronic skin,” and the applications of machine learning in pharma.
MC10 is also pleased to announce our founders (and technology visionaries), John Rogers and Roozbeh Ghaffari, will present sessions. At 10:45 on Tuesday, Rooz Ghaffari will highlight MC10’s current commercialized products, My UV Patch and BioStampRC®, as a jumping off point for the future of our wearable technology and the added capabilities and applications our team is working to develop and discover.
The event is co-sponsored by the Stanford Wearable Electronics Initiative or e-WEAR. e-WEAR is a university-wide program that has the goal of advancing Stanford’s expertise in electronics, data, and clinical science. e-WEAR wants to provide a forum for the discussion of the future of wearable electronics and promote relationships between university researchers and industry. The program aims to help in the standardization of wearables and their use as well as overall pushing the forefront of wearable technologies.
We’re looking forward to hearing what these leaders in innovation predict for the future of the industry and the future of healthcare.
