Description

What is Glass? Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head mounted display device being developed by Google. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to hear from Google Glass Explorers about their experiences with the device. You will also hear about how Google Glass can be incorporated into the medical field and have an opportunity to try the technology for yourself.

The workshop will begin with a brief overview of Google Glass and the function of this head mounted display device. The session will then be divided into two parts. In Part one, we will have Glass explorers discuss the use of glass by healthcare professionals in various use cases including clinical care and education. Speakers will give short 5 minute Ignite! talks followed by a moderated discussion with the audience. In Part two, we will have Glass explorers discuss the use of glass by patients and healthcare consumers (e.g. uses in diabetes, Parkinsons, CPR coaching and fitness may be discussed), following a similar format. The session will end with an opportunity for audience members to try Glass themselves.

#GoogleGlass Explorer and Developer; I think that Glass represents the natural evolution of the Human-Computer interface. The future potential of this device in Healthcare is limited only by our imagination. Performed and reported the first surgery ever assisted by GoogleGlass.

Focused in the convergence of Innovation-Technology, Futurism &Healthcare Social Media (HCSM) to improve Healthcare delivery.

I firmly believe that telemedicine, m-Health technology and Healthcare Social media will, very soon, completely redefine the way in which healthcare is delivered. Innovation in the application of remote presence to provide medical care, will cause a complete disruption of paradigms and allow for a better system.

Noble Ackerson is Co-Founder at Byte an Atom Research. Prior to founding the team at Byte an Atom, he created GlassFit, the world’s first virtual fitness companion for Google Glass. Featured in the Washington Business Journal and Geek, this fitness platform is pushing the limits of guided exercise routines with wearable devices. Among many accomplishments, he brings a great mix of technical breadth, leadership, a creative vision and a passion for building out a strong Glass community. Earlier this year, he founded the Society of Glass Enthusiasts, a group of federated Glass communities with over 25 chapters and 2,100+ members worldwide.
