Robin Wolz, Chief Scientific Officer at IXICO, commented: “We are excited about the opportunity to provide an update on various R&D activities at the AD/PD conference. Deep learning approaches in combination with well curated, high-quality data enable us to develop tools that can extract clinically meaningful insights that were previously not detectable and at a processing speed previously unthinkable. We look forward to sharing an update on how this technology impacts our ability to interpret both imaging and wearables data.“
