IE Fashion Club 2018

Written on July 17, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

Fashion helps us express ourselves in a unique way as well as defines who we are. It is about expressing our very own personality.

Fashion helps us show who we are and can be a tool of self-empowerment.

Our aim has been helping students connect with current trends and professionals in the fashion industry, giving them the opportunity to exchange thoughts and networking.

During these past four months the IE Fashion Club has brought in speakers from various areas of fashion. Cosmetics, Fashion Editorial Magazines, Entrepreneurs and Digital & Tech.

After the summer we would love to take a step further and organize more (and more interactive) activities, such as visits to ateliers, store visits around the city to discover the newness and trends, etc.

We hope that all of you who attended these talks enjoyed it. More to come after the summer.

Happy Summer!

In many ways this is the most wonderful time of the year, it is summer, we are graduating. It is time to reflect on what the last year brought to our lives, to explore the opportunities this transformation brings.

We have been through some nice events over the last 10 months: Started with Digitalising Everything moved to the signature TechIE event continued with Unleashing Creativity in Fintech; then we pondered on the Culture that brings about sustainable innovation and finished with disrupting the Hospitality industry. Yes we have had our happy hours and break drinks in between too.

Now is the time to celebrate our successes irrespective how small they are. It is time to give thanks to our fellow club members for bearing with us over the last year.

An opportunity for students to hear, discuss and network with speakers with different backgrounds, expertise, and interests on some of the challenges in Fintech and to explore how technology and creativity can be used to tackle them.

Executives from 3 leading companies will debate recent trends in Fintech that drive innovation (new technologies, client centricity) and the role of creativity in it.

Stay tuned for an engaging debate with our speakers: Paolo Sironi, Alberto Barreiro and Alberto Lopez Gonzalez

Now is the time to celebrate our successes irrespective how small they are. It is time to give thanks to our fellow club members for bearing with us over the last year.

It is also time to do things differently. We have welcomed some amazing coordinators this January. A big applause for them and we wish them the energy to carry the Technology and Innovation club through one more year. Furthermore, we have merged with IEU Computer Society Club. It is really amazing to be able to engage with students at different stages of their life and education.

Our club is changing and evolving and to new circumstances and demands from the IE students.

And it is never too late to be curious. Do not only look for but expect miracles. Have someone noticed the unicorn from our last event ? Look at the picture on the left for the ones who missed it.

We wish you to follow your heart, trust your intuition use your common sense and be curious about technology and innovation. Still we want to highlight that innovation and technology without the human at the centre is not enough as all those technologies and innovations are to be used and serve us the human beings. As such we are the creators of the world. We cannot create a future we cannot imagine.

Come to celebrate the end of the year with us Tomorrow Wednesday 18th of July at the WareHouse@TheHClub. [RSVP:300014772]

If you are interested in the club events over the next school year, be the first to know them via our whatsapp chat https://chat.whatsapp.com/1ZByEcfmt1G3HNTtWSoDFx

DOCTOR AI IS TAKING CARE OF YOUR HEALTH

Written on July 12, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

I predict that one day when we’ll go to an hospital, we will enter a small room where a machine will take our blood sample, scan our internal temperature with thermic cameras, identify what’s wrong with us and direct us to a specific department or even prescribe directly a treatment. But even if we are slowly going there, the medical industry collaboration with artificial intelligence is progressing with baby steps. However, it is already amazing to see how the current applications some companies created are already bringing results.

I have argued many times with my father about how artificial intelligence can have an impact in the medical industry and whether it is science fiction to think a computer can actually replace doctors. I don’t blame anyone for being pessimist regarding this, however we need to differentiate internet forums low accuracy in terms of medical advices and artificial intelligence powered medical tools. They are not related as medical forums are just content written by anyone and the actual algorithm behind an artificial intelligence framework is based on medical verified resources.

This is not the future, this is now. Here are three concrete applications within the medical industry that help doctors to increase the efficiency of their diagnosis. Those start-ups and big companies are using the concept of deep learning technology to increase the medical research and medical treatments by submitting a large amount of data to identify patterns.

Google AI & Verily : Identify cardiovascular diseases

Scanning patient’s eyes to predict cardiovascular diseases with the help of artificial intelligence. To achieve this, the companies fed their deep learning framework with an input data of 284000 of retina pictures. From this, the algorithm can assimilate patterns with different input such as :
• Sex
• Age
• Smoker or not
• Blood pressure
• If they had Cardiovascular accident or not

Those information are used by doctors to predict future cardiovascular issues that there patient can face.

Constitute a giant DNA database to detect rare diseases: Sophia Genetics

The Swiss startup Sophia Genetics raised $ 30 million last September. Its niche: to propose a genetic database that health professionals can consult to “search for the specific molecular characteristics of a tumor or a congenital disease”, explained his boss at Le Temps. Its strength is based on its database which grows more and more, analyzing “the DNA of 8000 patients each month”, able to identify recurring patterns and anomalies.

Being able to determine if you will die in five years:

Researchers published a study on May 10, 2017 in Scientific Reports that shows that it is possible to predict the life of a patient by having chest scanners read by an algorithm.

Precision Radiology: Predicting longevity using feature engineering and deep learning methods in a radionics framework

The goal is to save doctors time by letting the machine analyze the scans itself and provide predictions. The longer-term goal: to succeed with a single scan to predict future diseases, so that doctors can intervene as soon as possible.

Identify signs that a patient health is getting worse in hospitals.

DeepMind, the Google lab dedicated to artificial intelligence research, has a new, large-scale project: helping doctors find patients who “sink” before it’s too late to save them. 700,000 patient records will be read and analyzed by the algorithm developed by Google to train it to detect signals that indicate that a person’s health is deteriorating.

The goal: to reduce the percentage of deaths in hospital space that could have been avoided if physicians had been able to observe the patient’s health decline in time (11%). DeepMind gives the example of an operation such as the replacement of a hip that can cause kidney failure, impossible to detect with the naked eye.
