A wonderful opportunity has arisen for Sheridan student, Mark Beauchamp, of the Mobile Computing Program in the School of Applied Computing.

As a student researcher with the Centre for Mobile Innovation (CMI) doing applied research with award-winning and cutting-edge industry partner Cloud DX, Mark has been asked to demonstrate the integration of various technologies during Cloud DX’s presentation at the Yukon Medical Association’s Virtual Care Summit this coming weekend.

The event’s purpose is explained as follows:

  • There is a building momentum for disruptive change in the provision of health care throughout the country, in terms of technology and software applications.
  • In this context our CME sessions will offer the opportunity to hear insightful talks from physician innovators and to give you hands-on experience with examples of technologies that are on the market presently.
  • We hope this Virtual Care Summit will generate discussion about and interest in what technologies can be used to enhance our individual practices, community health initiatives and patient care.

As Dr. Ed Sykes, Director of the CMI, explains:

“The Centre for Mobile Innovation industry partner, Cloud DX, was invited to present their innovative medical products (Connected Health Kit, Vitaliti wearable) and there was a request from the Yukon Medical Association to have our HoloLens system demonstrated.”

Our Microsoft HoloLens was aired on the Discovery Channel at the Singularity Summit in 2017 (watch here ) and has been showcased at over 10 events since then.  With numerous improvements and additional features such as Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Facial Recognition and integration with existing EMR, this Yukon demonstration will be sure to enlightening the conference attendees.”

To further highlight the type of research and experiences that our students are exposed to while at Sheridan, feel free to explore Cloud DX as an example of the types of innovative companies that Sheridan engages with in real-world ways:

Good luck, Mark, and have fun!
