IBM System Saves Tiny Lives

IBM and and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) are jointly undertaking a first-of-a-kind project to develop a software system that “ingests a constant stream of biomedical data, such as heart rate and respiration, along with environmental data gathered from advanced sensors and more traditional monitoring equipment on and around criticality ill, premature babies.”

This will enable researchers to “make “sense” of the data and, in near-real-time, feed back the resulting analysis to health-care professionals so they can predict potential changes in an infant’s condition with greater accuracy and intervene more quickly.”
