About the Event:

In a recent Forbes magazine article it says “This might be the best time to break into the Healthcare Business. In fact, healthcare may be the new frontier of startup innovation. In a sector traditionally ruled by major multinationals and established providers, there is now more room for small and medium sized companies to get a piece of the action.”

Companies like IBM are helping Health Tech startups gain competitive advantages, create new revenue streams and attract new capital investment through the use of its Cognitive Computing technology, Watson.

IBM and Vicert would like to have you join our Meet Up to explore what other Health Tech companies are doing to leverage Watson. Make sure to bring your own ideas on how you think Watson might help propel your business forward. You’ll have an opportunity to share your thoughts in the group session or qualified companies may receive an exclusive complimentary technical design workshop (2-4hrs) with Cognitive Cloud Computing team to tailor Watson and the IBM Bluemix platform micro services towards your specific product goals.
