    • Health & Fitness: General Health
    • CONSUMER Health & Fitness: General Health
    • Health & Fitness: Multi-sports
    • Home Automation: Thermostat
    • Home Automation: Fire Alarm
    • WHY? • Nobody likes wires • “Smart” devices with sensors • Passing on data to a “Smarter” device • “What you cannot measure, you cannot improve” • Data-driven Prediction Algorithms: Machine Learning
    • HOW? • Low cost chips, printed circuit boards • Wifi and/or bluetooth capabilities • Battery (lithium) powered or low voltage e.g. 5 volt D.C. • Re-designed bluetooth stack for low power: BLE • Special stack for low power wifi: Zigbee
    • COMPARISON
    • IMPLICATIONS • Low cost chips, printed circuit boards • Wifi and/or bluetooth capabilities • Battery (lithium) powered or low voltage e.g. 5 volt D.C. • Re-designed bluetooth stack for low power: BLE • Special stack for low power wifi: Zigbee
    • ALGOACCESS We build products that serve: • Optician, Optometrists and Ophthalmologists • Eye-care Consumers
    • OPTICAL PROFESSIONALS Eye Health
    • OPTICAL PROFESSIONALS Eye Health
    • CHALLENGES • Machines: lensmeter, fundus, autorefractor, keratometer • Fragmented marketplace with many machine brands • Optometry is an old field with standards • BUT optometry data format has no existing standards • Established BLE profiles like Heart Rate Monitor profile, Battery profile, Proximity profile
    • OPTICAL PROFESSIONALS Eye Health
    • CHALLENGES • Changing human behavior is non-trivial • What’s in it for the Optometry professionals? • What’s in it for the consumers?
    • TECH LIMITATIONS • Fundus images require wifi • iOS BLE has a 1.5 kbps throughput limitations
    • OPPORTUNITIES http://www.stjobs.sg/career-resources/hr- updates/growing-spore-medtech-industry-eyes- region/a/140158 From next year, a trip to your optician could end up saving your eyesight. That is, if local start-up Algo Access has anything to say about it. In December last year, the firm bought
    • OPPORTUNITIES • Computer vision algorithms and machine learning on fundus images • Disease prediction: Diabetic retinopathy, AMD (age- related macular degeneration), Glaucoma, Non- invasive coronary artery disease detection
    • OPPORTUNITIES • Empowering the consumers to manage their health • Vision test consumer apps on iOS etc
