On Thursday evening, Cydar’s Chief Technology Officer Rob Hague and Director of Operations Louise Conway were among the capacity audience at the 2018 Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards, which featured many of the leading lights of the vibrant Cambridge technology ecosystem. They were delighted when Cydar was chosen as runner up and highly commended in the AI Company of the Year category, sponsored by Cambridge Precision, against stiff competition. Congratulations to Featurespace who won first prize for their use of AI in fraud and risk management.
Rob Hague, CTO commented “This is a recognition of the hard work that the whole team has done in taking our technology from invention to implementation, and bringing it to clinicians and patients. We're particularly pleased given the strength of the competition; being surrounded by such incredible companies and individuals across a wide range of fields was both humbling and inspiring. This is a particularly exciting time for Cydar. Not only are we rolling out our existing technology to more and more users, but the data we're processing allows us to develop ever more sophisticated capabilities to further improve patient outcomes. Combined with advances in machine learning, cloud computing and hardware acceleration, an amazing array of possibilities are opening up."
Cydar’s computer vision and processing of 2D and 3D medical images uses AI extensively to provide automation, robustness and analytics in the highly demanding field of image-guided surgery.
