Enlitic is pleased to announce that it won the top prize at the first Cube Tech Fair in Berlin, Germany, beating out 250 of the world’s most innovative companies.
During the final round, COO Kevin Lyman gave a demonstration of Enlitic’s medical deep learning diagnostics platforms in front of competition judge (and Apple co-founder) Steve Wozniak to take home the top prize of €1 Million – the largest prize of its kind, worldwide.
The competition is the latest success for Enlitic on its path towards commercializing its medical deep learning technology. “Because Enlitic was the first company to enter this field, our technology is the most mature in the world. We’ve demonstrated to our partners in blind tests that we can rapidly and accurately identify anomalies in medical images – the only company in the world with this capability,” said Sally Daub, Executive Advisor and Board Member who has been advising the company on commercialization strategy since Fall 2016. “We chose the Cube competition for its global reach. With partners like Bayer, representatives of government and a vast network of potential customers, it was the ideal opportunity to showcase Enlitic’s medical deep learning technology and its array of applications in pharmaceutical research, diagnostics, and patient care.”
Founder, Jeremy Howard said, “When I started Enlitic, I quickly realized that the best way to help doctors is to find and highlight all medical abnormalities – not just a small set of afflictions. That vision has now become a reality, and it is really rewarding to see Enlitic’s technology getting recognized in this way.”
