IBM Design Challenge: Heart Monitor

Using microchips and IBM Watson to monitor heart health.

IBM Watson Design Challenge

I participated in a design challenge sponsored by IBM. The prompt was to develop an application for Watson technology that would make the world better.

I am very interested in heart disease, which runs in my family. At the time of this challenge, I had recently came across research on implantable chips which could montior levels of certain molecules within the blood. I thought that combining these microchips, over a large enough user base, we might be able to use machine learning as an early warning system for those prone to heart attacks.

I will be adding more to this project page soon.
