AI & Data Science Showcase:

Deepcell offers an AI-powered imaging and microfluidics platform that identifies and isolates viable cells based on morphological distinctions for use in translational research, diagnostic testing, and therapeutics.

Deep Learning Enables Label-free, Real-time Cell Characterization and Isolation
We present a novel technology for real-time identification and sorting of unlabeled single cells in flow using high-resolution imaging and a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) across multiple cell types including immune cells, malignant cells, among others.

 Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley

The PMWC 2022 AI Company Showcase will provide a 15-minute time slot for selected AI companies to present their latest technologies to an audience of leading investors, potential clients, and partners. We will hear from companies building technologies that expedite the pre-clinical and clinical drug discovery and development process, accelerate patient diagnosis and treatment, or develop scalable systems framework to make AI and deep/machine learning a reality.
