Activ Surgical Joins Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program
As part of the Qualcomm® Advantage Network, the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program is designed to connect cities, municipalities, government agencies and enterprises with an ecosystem of providers to help deliver greater efficiencies, cost savings, safety and sustainability. With proven expertise in commercially deployed solutions, program members include hardware and software providers, cloud solution providers, system integrators and design and manufacturing companies
"We are humbled and honored to join the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program, particularly as we begin to ramp up deployments of our surgical intelligence platform into healthcare systems across the U.S. this year," said Todd Usen, CEO, Activ Surgical. "We share Qualcomm Technologies' vision to empower global access to best-in-class surgery, regardless of geography."
Activ Surgical's participation in the program and collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies will help increase opportunities for healthcare systems in the U.S. and in global markets to leverage its newly announced ActivEdge platform. ActivEdge is an AI and machine-learning (ML) hardware-agnostic platform that enables existing surgical systems to see in real-time what humans cannot currently see, including blood flow. Participation in the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program will give Activ Surgical critical access to hardware- and software-enabled communication tools and 5G networks
"Digital healthcare and telemedicine are extremely important elements of our smart, connected world, and will only continue to grow in importance,"
Activ Surgicals' membership in the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program also links it with Innominds, a specialist full-cycle product engineering services company. Activ Surgical and Innominds are currently working on the development of an AI-powered camera that can be used in digital surgeries, as well as a solution for big data ingestion into the cloud. The collaboration is expected to drive transformation initiatives in data-driven, intelligent surgery by bringing together both companies' expertise across ML, 5G, big-data analytics and advanced visualization solutions for surgery.
"Working with Activ Surgical enables Innominds to bring together leading-edge device engineering, breakthrough software product engineering, cloud applications and AI-driven data engineering to power digital surgeries of the future," said Anil Katakam, Chief Operating Officer, Innominds. "This collaboration will ensure that we stay at the forefront of developing AI-powered, connected camera/imaging solutions that are simpler, smarter and more cost-effective.
