We are a Silicon Valley-based startup in the medical tech space with a grand vision of building new biologically-motivated whole-brain architectures enabling real-time synthesis of sensory data in text, audio, image, and video formats with complex knowledge stores. The first Brainworks global challenge is to reinvent an industry in crisis: healthcare delivery for rapidly aging populations. Our first service enhances and automates the single most burdensome aspects of healthcare operations: the measurement and logging of patient vital signs. Brainworks Ambient Biometrics technology replaces traditional wired vital sign measurement with the very latest neuroscience inspired non-contact computer vision and AI technologies. Brainworks Ambient Biometrics is a completely non-contact system that uses any web-connected video camera (including smartphones, computers, tablets, wall-mounted web-cams and even smart TVs) to lock-on to a patient’s face, recognize who they are, measure their vital signs, and automatically record the data to that patient’s health record. Our technology has wide applications in telemedicine, emergency rooms, in-home and elder care, amongst others.
