Seattle startup co-founded by Dr. Sam Browd aims to change surgery using AI, computer vision and augmented reality

Proprio’s Paradigm system captures high-definition images of the operating field from above and fuses them with images of pre-operative three-dimensional scans. The system relies on advances in light field imaging, computer vision, machine learning, robotics and augmented reality.

New blood test can detect ‘toxic’ protein years before Alzheimer’s symptoms emerge, study shows

Dr. Andrew Ko is part of a research team that has developed a test to measure levels of amyloid beta oligomers in blood samples. Oligomers are amyloid beta proteins that misfold and clump together potentially developing into Alzheimer’s.
