For the first time ever, Vietnam will collaborate with local and global knowledge partners, McKinsey & Company, Vietnam Innovation Network (VIN) and VietAI, to launch Vietnam’snational artificial intelligence (AI) movement through the Vietnam AI Grand Challenge. Bringing together the country’s best AI talent, the Challenge will support corporations in Vietnam and globally in designing the ultimate virtual assistant.

According to the McKinsey Global Institute, the research arm of McKinsey & Company, AI technologies can significantly boost productivity and potentially deliver additional global economic activity of around $13 trillion by 2030. This amounts to 1.2 percent additional GDP growth per year between 2018 and 2030.

Recognizing the importance of AI in Vietnam, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Planning and Investment have partnered with Kambria to deliver the Vietnam AI Grand Challenge, while providing advisory and support for the series. “Kambria is thrilled to be the key driver of the Vietnam AI Grand Challenge,” said Dr. Thuc Vu, CEO of Kambria. “We believe wholeheartedly in the promise of Vietnam to step onto the global stage of AI and robotics development. We have the opportunity to connect Vietnamese AI talents with large corporations using our open innovation platform and to incubate leading projects developed here for global impact.”

As the Challenge’s knowledge partner, global management consulting firm McKinsey will share research insights and perspectives on AI developments. VietAI, a non-profit whose mission is to train and nurture the next generation of young AI talent in Vietnam, will also serve as judges and provide technical education to our developers. VIN, one of the government’s initiatives, aims to connect Vietnamese innovators around the world to boost the technology ecosystem in Southeast Asia. These knowledge partners will work with Kambria to deliver a series of workshops and hackathons focused on AI and robotics.

The Vietnam AI Grand Challenge will take place in Ho Chi Minh CityHanoi, and Danang, with an initial series of educational workshops. Hackathons begin in June and will culminate in the Grand Finale in mid-August as part of the AI4VN program. For more information, please visit www.AIGrandChallenge.com.

The 4-camera Window Mixed Reality headset also enables 2X the controller tracking volume, maintaining six degrees of freedom without external sensors or lighthouses.
Long-Wearing Comfort:
• The HP Reverb VR Headset G2 is more comfortable than the previous generation with an increased facemask cushion for better weight distribution for extended VR sessions and optional replaceable face gaskets for ease of cleaning between sessions.

CIT GAP Funds Makes Follow-On Investment in MetiStream

Herndon, VA, May 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) today announced that CIT GAP Funds has made a follow-on investment in Vienna, Va.-based MetiStream, developer of a platform that uses big data, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning to reveal hidden insights in unstructured clinical data. Since CIT’s initial investment earlier this year, MetiStream has launched Ember Clinical Reviewer (CR), a solution to accelerate the analysis of patient and population data for COVID-19 and other clinically focused use cases by leveraging Ember’s advanced NLP and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. The additional funding from GAP Funds will be used for product enhancements, and increased marketing and sales efforts.As it pertains to the current COVID-19 pandemic, every health system in the U.S. is rapidly generating large amounts of data that can be used to more effectively identify and manage patients infected with or immune to COVID-19 infection. This data, such as symptoms or health risk factors, is buried within the free-text clinical notes and documentation of electronic health records (EHR). The unstructured nature of healthcare data makes it difficult for health systems to integrate it with other high-value data sets, which will cause significant delays and even prevent health system leaders from having an accurate understanding of COVID-19’s impact on patients. A key example is the identification of a cohort of patients who may be a donor or recipient candidate for antibodies.  To address data extraction and speed to insight challenges, MetiStream built Ember CR to accelerate the analysis of patient and population data for COVID-19.“We want to do everything possible as a company to support the healthcare community’s fight against COVID-19. The best way we know how is through better data so that organizations can quickly leverage all of their clinical information to treat and manage their patient population in the changing environment,” said Chiny Driscoll, CEO of MetiStream. “We thank CIT for their continued support during these unprecedented times, enabling us to accelerate the development and testing of our new product.”Ember CR, which is built upon MetiStream’s scalable, cloud-based end-to-end Ember NLP and AI platform, automates the extraction and processing of structured and unstructured healthcare data found in free text EHR notes and other healthcare documentation formats such as searchable and non-searchable PDFs. The extraction and processing of both structured and unstructured data sets will enable providers and related healthcare organizations to deliver actionable analysis and insights with evidence-based reports, predictive analytics, and “Next Best Action” considerations for cohorts of COVID-19 patients.“CIT is proud of our many portfolio companies going out of their way to make a difference in the fight against COVID-19. MetiStream is actively collaborating with multiple providers and related healthcare organizations to further address various COVID-19 data and analysis needs using the Ember Clinical Reviewer solution,” said Jennifer O’Daniel, Investment Director at CIT GAP Funds. “Information access and analysis are critical to managing challenges facing the healthcare industry today. We look forward to seeing what MetiStream will do next.”About MetiStream
MetiStream specializes in addressing the challenging unstructured data problem in the healthcare industry. MetiStream’s mission is to help organizations access and gain value from all of their data assets to develop a deeper understanding of the patient population, improve quality and proactively impact patient outcomes.
