How We’re Innovating Healthcare from the Outside In

I’ve never actually created a bucket list, but if I had, speaking at TEDMED would be close to the top. What an honor to be invited to participate in TEDMED 2013 at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, April 16-19, 2013.

At its core, TEDMED is a celebration of human achievement and the power of connecting the unconnected in creative ways to change our world in health and medicine. I’ve been asked to do my part by participating in an entirely new type of TEDMED session.

Rebooting Weather Forecasting Technology

“Fortunately, weather science has developed a storm warning system that saves thousands of lives each year. In part, that’s because people can save their lives from a flash flood, lightning, or high winds in a matter of seconds. A 15-second dash to the basement is enough to survive a tornado.

But it takes more preparation time to mitigate economic losses from severe weather. And  the forecasting methods needed to do so—by more exactly calculating a storm’s intensity and impact zones—have lagged.”

An Exciting Partnership for Baseball Fans

America’s favorite pastime has an incredible history of serving its fans with the latest technologies, and now, the digital media pros on the Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM) team are collaborating with Qualcomm to conduct an extensive study and ultimately to optimize mobile connectivity for enhanced in-park experiences.

Harnessing that power of mobile to supercharge fan experiences at supported MLB ballparks is the foundation of the plan and Qualcomm is proud to be an official technology partner in the effort.

Meeting the Demands of Today's Very Rapid Product Cycles

In today’s dynamic, highly competitive high-volume smartphone segment, decreasing time to market is a critical concern for device manufacturers. I’m very proud to say that we’ve dramatically shortened that cycle with the Qualcomm Reference Design (QRD) program by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and are seeing our customers launch devices in as few as 60 days or less.
