M1: Disruption of the care pathway in oncology

Oncology R&D spend has been the highest among all of the therapeutic areas for a good part of the last decade. As a result, we have seen the introduction of some ground-breaking therapies that have brought significant gains in cure and survival rates.

However, the net effect cost of cancer care is growing exponentially and is predicted to reach unsustainable levels. The focus is now on medical technologies and device innovations to bring much-needed evolution in the way new drugs are developed and the way patients are treated.

This seminar will focus on the medical device technologies and innovations with potential to bring grassroots changes in cancer research and the care delivery model. We will provide our perspective on how these change catalysts can impact patient experience, cost burdens and reimbursement models.

M2: The search for ultra-low-cost IoT: how low can we go?

With Gartner forecasting 20 billion IoT devices by 2020, the bar has been set high. Yet there are mountains to be moved before such lofty predictions can be realised.

Even a few cents is too much, to add connectivity to low-value ‘things’. We believe that reducing the cost of connectivity – far below today’s levels – will soon enable IoT to grow exponentially. Supporting this, Cambridge Consultants has recently demonstrated a minimum viable IoT product at an unprecedented cost point, and the work continues.

We’ll map out the stages and massive possibilities as we drive towards the creation of an IoT device for less than $0.20.

M3: Making deep learning more attractive

Advances in machine learning – particularly deep learning – are fuelling the belief that AI has come of age.

But there are sizeable barriers to widespread deployment. Firstly, the requirement for huge, high-quality data sets to train deep learning systems. Secondly, the resulting 'AI black box', making it difficult to establish trust.

This talk will detail creative, technology-based approaches we can take to overcome these barriers. For example, approaches that require far less source data, or where we can ask an AI system to explain its decisions. We will illustrate the talk with results from our Digital Greenhouse AI research laboratory.

A1: Measuring biology: how hard can it be?

The bioeconomy – economic activity built on biology – is growing rapidly across the globe. New technology to predict and control biology is driving change in industries from pharmaceuticals to energy.

Core to commercialising any successful technology is the ability to measure and characterise. As our ambitions to manipulate biology grow, the challenge of how to measure such complex systems also grows. How do we characterise the biology products of the future? How hard can it be?

This seminar investigates issues in measuring biological systems and discusses new techniques – such as using biology to measure biology – that support truly smarter products.

A3: Pose tracking for VR and AR

Virtual Reality (VR) has evolved rapidly over the last two years, from basic systems to state-of-the-art ‘room scale’ systems. VR is set to be a game-changing technology in a range of industries, creating new paradigms in both gaming and professional applications.

SteamVR's tracking system is a market-leading solution developed by Synapse that outperforms competing systems. Hear about example applications and the challenges of designing hardware to achieve this level of next-generation performance.
