Edge Automation and Edge Analytics

Elizabeth Samara Rubio
Principal Specialist
Amazon Web Services (AWS)

IDC predicts that by 2023, 70% of enterprises will run varying levels of analytic and AI models at the Edge. Edge Automation and Edge Analytics applications are driving customer demand for AI@Edge.

These applications cut across the design, distribution, maintenance and fulfillment of physical products and materials, consumer marketing and safety. In Manufacturing, edge automation applications improve workflows for optimizing product designs, identifying and removing defective parts, monitoring part assembly and verification, order fulfillment systems, predictive quality and predictive maintenance. This growing need for analytics-driven, automated quality management process control is driving requirements for (1) predictable performance (latency, model), (2) stability over time and (3) lower cost to scale with less customization (‘plug & play’). During this session, we will discuss trends for lowering the cost to scale by reducing the complexity of developing and running AIML models at the edge.

Impact of MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery) and the Significance of Medical Imaging

Jacques Marescaux
MD, FACS, (Hon) FRCS, (Hon) FASA, Hon. APSA, Hon. FJSES, Hon. FJSS
Founder and President of IRCAD (Institute for Research on Cancers of the Digestive Tract)

Over recent years, the art of surgery has been remodeled very rapidly by the outstanding technological developments, particularly those generated by computer and robotic sciences. Modern computers with increasing computational power and endowed with artificial intelligence can work out the “big data” coming from human beings and can analyze patient-specific health fingerprints through the massive acquisition of omics data and all types of imaging. At the IRCAD, we are preparing for this transition, working on the augmented hand, in a human-robot co-manipulation or collaboration workflow; the augmented eye by exploiting the potential of medical imaging; and cognitive technologies (the augmented brain) in order to increase the safety and efficacy profile of surgical procedures.

Challenges of Smart Healthcare

Matthias Lubkowitz
Head of Healthcare Business Center
ADLINK

One of the most challenging topics happening within hospitals and Operating Rooms(OR) is informatics. By providing right information at the right time, based on the best possible availability is key to each success surgery. With that, doctors and surgeons should focus less on technology-based challenges, but rather more on how to minimize risks to patients, procedures, which contributes to overall OR efficiency and process improvements. This is where technology providers like AUO, ADLINK step in and help.

AUO and ADLINK are dedicated to address this “imaging informatics” challenge, to improve the workflow efficiency by providing real-time, accurate visual guidance and minimizing imaging processing time. This brings better Operating Room turnover time, and improved patient experience.

In this session, we will walk through use cases from hospitals and operating rooms, and show how technologies from AUO, ADLINK and medical equipment manufacturers could positively impact our healthcare eco-system.
