Microsoft Ignite is an annual conference for developers and IT professionals. The first conference, then known as TechEd, happened in 1993 in Orlando, Florida, United States. In 2020, it went all online.
This year together with my good colleague Rasmus Jaqué, I got the chance to host a a session about developer community in Denmark & highlights of their projects & initiatives. This is a short recap about this session.
Rasmus had a chance to talk to Lars Maaløe CTO from Corti. Corti was founded in 2016 in San Francisco, they felt assured that the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare could enable medical professionals to be better and faster, improving patient outcomes on a global scale. With this showcased project, Corti has build a voice-based digital assistant powered by cutting-edge artificial intelligence, capable of understanding patients talking in natural language. It is used when someone calls for an ambulance in Denmark, the AI agent will be listening in. Using sound-recognition software, it will analyze words and background noises—like a victim’s unusual breathing, even if that person is not the caller—to alert a dispatcher if it believes a heart attack is in progress.
Corti is a very good example on how AI & Machine Learning can save lives.
