Nanox Reinvents X-Ray Machine, Files IPO

If your job is to screen hundreds of resumes to find the perfect candidate, it’s impossible to compare them all, so you look for red flags. Something as simple as a typo will land your resume squarely in the circular filing cabinet because you clearly don’t pay attention to details. Similarly, when you’re assessing hundreds […]

Verily Life Sciences Leads Digitization of Healthcare

We recently did a deep dive into the available robotic surgery stocks on the market. The article only considered pure-play companies where a significant portion of their revenues are derived from that particular emerging technology. Otherwise, you may end up with a list of great companies, such as Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), but get little […]

Renalytix AI and Kidney Disease Diagnostics

People often confuse “invest in what you know” with “invest in domestic stocks only.” Index provider MSCI builds an all-encompassing global index called the “MSCI ACWI IMI AC Index.” Forget about what all those cryptic acronyms mean, all you need to know is that 99% of all stocks around the globe from 49 countries are […]

The Lantern Pharma IPO Raises Some Questions

We recently published a report on seven AI healthcare stocks noting that six were the result of recent IPOs. Of those, two are involved in drug discovery. We’ve written extensively about how machine learning and computational chemistry are speeding up the drug development process and decreasing the likelihood that drugs will fail. It’s all about […]

Nanox Uses Nanofabrication for Digital Medical Imaging 

Big disruptions keep coming in smaller packages. Take the handheld ultrasound machine from Butterfly Network, a startup out of Connecticut that has basically turned a smartphone into a digital medical imaging device. The company found a way to squeeze ultrasound technology onto a single silicon chip – and charge less than $2,000 in the process. The […]

9 AI Healthcare Startups Deploying Virtual Assistants

Some people watch beauty contests. We study lists that rank the smartest digital assistants. Googlers will rejoice to know that Google Assistant is the brainiest of the bunch. That’s according to a couple of different studies that came out at the end of last year, including one by a Minneapolis-based venture capital firm. It’s been […]

AI Healthcare Startup Inspiren Addresses Bedside Care

It’s not every day that you start an interview with the co-founder of a startup telling you about the stroke he had a week after graduating college. But that life-altering event is certainly part of the origin story of Brooklyn-based Inspiren, a company that has brought a device to market that uses artificial intelligence to […]

A Computational Chemistry IPO From Schrodinger

Elon Musk once said that there’s a one in a billion chance we’re not living in a simulation. Sounds far-fetched until you start digging into simulation theory a bit. It’s backed by theories from leading academics, like Nick Bostrom’s “simulation argument,” which presents three likelihoods, each equally frightening to ponder. To paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke, it is […]

7 AI Healthcare Startups Automating Clinical Trials

It’s no secret that it’s extremely expensive to develop new drug therapies. One study estimates that pharmaceutical firms spend between $2 billion and $3 billion and more than a dozen years in R&D activities to get a new FDA-approved drug to market. An important step in the process is the clinical trial where human guinea […]
