PyData Edinburgh meetup : Data-Driven Healthcare at snap40

January 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Description

snap40 is a growing tech startup based in Edinburgh with the mission to radically improve healthcare across the globe. Using our wearable device, we monitor vital signs and automatically identify patients at high risk of deterioration, alerting healthcare staff through our app.

The Data Science team at snap40 is responsible for many parts of our system, such as developing accurate, interpretable vital sign estimation algorithms, deterioration modeling, and using enough hidden layers to call ourselves an AI company.

From wrangling health data to determining when our device is off-arm — come along to discover some of the frustrations and delights of working in the healthcare space.

Presenter: Annabel Kramer

While completing a Cognitive Science degree at University of Edinburgh, Annabel quickly realised no one has a clue what this is, and decided to specialise in the more practical subjects of NLP and speech technology. After graduating, she joined health tech startup snap40 as a Data Scientist, where she loves working in a multidisciplinary team and an industry that uses more acronyms than a computational linguistics journal.
