It’s 40 degrees Celsius, sitting outside with my long friend Deepak Kaura in an awesome coffee-bar in Scheveningen (The Hague) he actually pointed me out to (he’s a coffee-freak) talking about innovation and recording my next episode for my Future of Health podcast.
From his role as chair within the CMA (Canadian Medical Association) of the innovation-department Joule, about his role as CMO of 1Qbit (advanced computation including quantum-inspired and quantum computing) and about why frontline staff in healthcare (physicians and nurses) should claim and take on their role in innovation. Deepak on twitter.
A pediatric radiologist who has started several technology companies, Deepak Kaura brings a range of experience and leadership skills to the role of Board Chair. Passionate about improving health through the use of technology balanced with personalized human touch, Deepak is dedicated to innovation, building teams and has a keen interest in Artificial Intelligence.
Deepak has recently returned to Canada from five years in Qatar to join 1QBit, a quantum computing software company, as its Chief Medical Officer. In Qatar, as Executive Chair of Sidra’s Foundational Clinical Services Management Group, he played a critical role in setting up and establishing new standards in patient care at a 400-bed children and women’s hospital and creating Imagine, an innovation framework that produces intellectual property by crowdsourcing ideas. Prior to this he was the Head of Diagnostic Imaging at the Alberta Children’s Hospital.
Deepak earned his medical degree at the University of Manitoba, is a Diplomat of the American Board of Radiology, a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Certification of Canada and has a Master of Business Administraton from HEC Paris.
Aimee van Wynsberghe – datacenters on the arctic to train an ai, really?
A conversation with Aimee (in a crowded lobby) about how training an AI could impact the carbon footprint, how we need to think about the difference between a human touch of a doctor versus a robot, and why we need to talk NOW in stead of waiting till we have the problems in our backyard.
Aimee van Wynsberghe has been working in ICT and robotics since 2004. She is Assistant Professor in Ethics and Technology at TU Delft in the Netherlands. She co-founded the Foundation for Responsible Robotics and on the board of the Institute for Accountability in a Digital Age. She is author of the book Healthcare Robots: Ethics, Design, and Implementation. More to read on Wikipedia. She is a colleague of mine as Edge fellow at the center for the edge @deloitte.
So, why don’t you listen to our conversation in this podcast too?!
