Tomorrow's Wearables


Published on

Wearables are said to be the next computing frontier. However, the smart wristbands and other wearables of today are beset with lack of functionality beyond step counting.
This presentation takes us into the future of wearable technology which will enables us to monitor our health, administer medication on-the-go, and potentially transforme today's health care systems.

  28. 28. + Bios Eddy Lee, PhD Head of Investments at Fenox Venture Capital Consulting Professor at Stanford University Eddy Lee, PhD invests in IT and Health Tech startups.To date, he has invested in more than 50 startups predominately in the US, Singapore and Indonesia. Investment areas include mobile health, big data and marketplaces. Apart from establishing enterprise partnerships, supporting product development, and enabling M&A exits of portfolio companies, Eddy helps startups enter international markets such as the US, Japan, Singapore and Indonesia. He is also a board member at which provides virtual doctor consultation. At a concurrent appointment at Stanford University, Eddy serves as a Consulting Professor at the School of Medicine, where he connects academic projects with commercial opportunities. During his research career at Stanford, Singapore and Australia, he devised medical imaging technology for visualizing stem cell migration and therapy. And while at Marvell and Lucent, he designed semiconductor circuits for high speed communications. Eddy completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University, and holds a Ph.D in Bioengineering and a B.Eng in Electrical Engineering. He has been an invited speaker at international conferences.
