Game Changer Series:  Technologies

Dr. Orlando Auciello, Professor of Engineering, UT Dallas
Bryan  Merckling, CEO, THINaër

The Game Changer Series focuses on companies and people in North Texas that are changing the way we view healthcare today.

  • Find out how THINaër is changing the healthcare industry with IoT and AI.  The ability to capture and contextualize the data from connected devices, combined with AI, is already improving patient outcomes inside the hospital while simultaneously lowering the overall cost of health care.
  • Dr. Orlando Auciello has invented a diamond coating that increases the life of biological implants.  He grows the ultra-thin diamonds in his lab - each grain is five nanometers across.  Diamond doesn't break down from wear-and-tear, is resistant to chemical attack, and is not rejected by the human body.

Following the presentations, THINaër will be demonstrating some of the latest exciting integrated Med-Tech devices including ECG/EKG in the palm of your hand and from a ring, and Dr. Auciello will be conducting tours of his lab, which is right next to the room where the presentations will be held
