Medical 3D Printing Company Axial3D Platforming on AWS & Using Machine Learning Algorithms to Augment & Automate the Process
For surgeons, having fast access to detailed, reliable patient data is vital for success in the operating theater. Too often in complex cases, 2D imaging does not provide enough detail or insight to clinicians to give them full certainty of their approach in surgical plans. Axial3D provides clinicians with the insight and confidence they need to create a surgical plan in the form of high-quality, patient-specific 3D anatomical models. With over three million complex procedures taking place each year, automation is essential if 3D printing is to become a go-to pre-surgical routine in healthcare. The segmentation process currently takes anywhere between 4-10 hours per printed model, but we aim to reduce this by platforming on AWS and using machine learning algorithms to augment and automate the process of segmenting the 2D images and turning them into 3D printable objects. This combination allows us to deliver near-instantaneous results and removing the main bottlenecks associated with medical 3D printing.
Imagine that you’re walking down the street in an unfamiliar city and decide to stop for lunch. You put on your augmented reality (AR)-enabled glasses and look around you, and certain restaurants’ ratings and recent reviews appear overlaid on their storefronts. After you select a restaurant and sit down, you put the glasses on once again and a virtual menu appears on the table. While this may seem futuristic, in reality it’s the next generation of computing. AR cloud technology enables the unification of the physical and digital world to create immersive experiences like the one just described. This technology uses a common interface to deliver persistent, collaborative and contextual digital content overlaid onto people, objects and locations. This provides users with information and services directly tied to every aspect of their physical surroundings.
Gartner Predicts that by 2025, 15% of organizations with more than $1 billion in revenue will use Augmented Reality (AR) Cloud
Gartner predicts that by 2025, 15% of organizations with more than $1 billion in revenue will use AR cloud to monetize the physical world through new interactions and business models. While many opportunities for AR cloud are still years away, there are near-term actions that businesses can take to capitalize on this emerging technology. The COVID-19 pandemic has made the value proposition for enterprise AR solutions more urgent, particularly among frontline workers who are leveraging AR to make their job easier, faster, or safer. Many organizations that have already deployed AR solutions are expanding their deployments, and others that were previously unaware of AR, or had deprioritized it in favor of other emerging technologies, are refocusing on these initiatives.
