AI in a small way


Small and powerful as they may be, smartphones can’t be implanted in patient’s bodies and, though it’s a little less impossible, strapping them to every surface in a manufacturing plant still isn’t cost-efficient. To leverage machine learning and AI more widely, the hardware that supports it needs to shrink. Andrew Tunnicliffe speaks to Wolfgang Emmerich, CEO at Zühlke UK; Radu Sporea, senior lecturer in semiconductor devices at the University of Surrey; and Song Han, assistant professor in electrical engineering and computer science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, about cramming learning capabilities on to single transistors and microcontrollers.


CEO at Zühlke UK. “It won’t be healthcare with a few extra clever apps and devices. Instead, we will find mobile medical technology increasingly bringing together a wealth of data for immediate analysis by AI to help prevent illnesses, diagnose them and help medical professionals monitor treatments.” Zühlke was a key player in the development and launch of the UK NHS’s Covid-19 app, which gained a CE mark and was classed as a medical device. Speaking at the time, the wider Zühlke Group’s CEO, Fabrizio Ferrandina, said, “The unification of technology, engineering and medical

ver the next ten years, many aspects of healthcare will change beyond all recognition,” says Wolfgang Emmerich,


compliance is a trend that we are seeing globally. The ‘App as a Medical Device’ is a remarkable evolution of the mobile phone that is transforming digital health in all its manifestations.” Emmerich believes patients, doctors, nurses, scientists, researchers and pharmacists will all feel their position in the healthcare system changing and developing as a result of these technologies, ultimately leading to better patient outcomes. “Complex medical apps can be created, approved and deployed very quickly where there is the will and skill to do this,” he stresses. “And they can quickly have a major public health impact – in this case, in making a major contribution to reducing the spread of a dangerous disease.”
