WHINN Bits & Beers is an atypical after work event, which is positioned as a run-up event for the following two-days WHINN Conference 2019. Event participation is prioritised by national and international profiles within the health- and welfare technology sector. It offers a unique opportunity to combine business and pleasure while you get new insights to the newest trends in technology.
The 2019 edition of WHINN Bits & Beers will centre around six innovative companies working on the latest technology in health. The set-up is informal with its combination of business and pleasure. The event will be held from 7pm at the Anarchist microbrewery where you can buy a chilled beer brewed by the brewmasters of Anarchist, while sounds from the Dj spice up the atmosphere.
During the evening committed and impassioned speakers will present short bites of their findings and central take aways. Talks are short, being held to 10 minutes, and have different focuses – some are focusing on technical standards in it-solutions, others are focusing on the implementation and usage of technology – however, all topics are identified as important factors to the healthcare and care providers as well as the companies in question.
This year, the event will zoom in on how design and technologies can be a change maker and add value to the both the citizens, the healthcare sector and the private companies. What are the gains and pains – the challenges and potentials - of intelligent healthcare devices? Can data create growth for companies?
First, the focus will be on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the health sector. Lorenz Technology will present their work with intelligent drones, Haplap on the product Klikit, supporting evidence-based medicine decision-making, and Corti on an AI-based IT system that improves conversation with the call centre. After the break, the company Acubit will talk about the potential of the product Otiom, a tracking device for citizens with dementia and Trine Møller, PhD from the Kolding School of Design, will inaugurate why health products need a design boost.
The entire program will soon be updated.
During the event, there will be breaks where we encourage you to connect with the speakers, network with the other attendees, and enjoy a cold beer from the brewery.
WHINN Bits & Beers is the run-up for the following WHINN Conference 2019 and you are more than welcome to participate even though you are not participating in the conference. Registration for this event in mandatory.
WHINN Bits & Beers 2019 is held by the Innovation Network Danish Healthtech with support from the Ministry of Education and Research.
