How to Attract AI Talent for Your Medical Device

Artificial intelligence may still be in its infancy, but the demand for AI talent is already growing at warp speed, according to a recent report from jobs site Indeed Inc. Posts for AI-related roles on Indeed nearly doubled between June 2015 and June 2018. Meanwhile, during the same time period, the percent of searches on Indeed using "AI" or "machine learning" increased by 182%. In the medical device and diagnostics industries, we've already seen how artificial intelligence technology can impact medtech. But how can companies differentiate themselves to snag the best AI engineers for their device? "The competition is so severe and everyone is using the buzz words of AI and data science so it's up to us to be different and rise above the noise," Liza Blumenthal VP of people and culture at SparkBeyond, told MD+DI. One advantage medtech companies have over the broader tech companies is the ability to attract people who are looking for a sense of purpose as opposed to just looking for the biggest paycheck or benefits package. "When you're trying to attract AI talent in the medical sphere it's really important for hiring managers to play that angle," Brian D’alessandro, director of data science at SparkBeyond told MD+DI. "Because at the end of the day if you're building a system that does automatic diagnosis or a system that can help someone with paralysis ha...

This study aimed at investigating the effects of dietary protein levels on the growth and liver transcriptome in juvenile Ancherythroculter nigrocauda. Six semi-purified diets were formulated containing 25 (control), 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50% protein. Each diet was fed to three groups of 35 fish (mean initial weight: 5.86 ± 0.10 g) for 56 days. The rate of weight gain and specific growth rate increased with dietary protein levels from 25% to 40%, but remained unchanged when fed with 45 or 50% dietary protein. The feed conversion ratio was significantly influenced by the dietary protein levels, being the lowest...

Publication date: October 2019Source: Safety Science, Volume 118Author(s): R. Patriarca, A. Falegnami, A. De Nicola, M.L. Villani, N. PaltrinieriAbstractThe development of safety indicators represents an integral part of any safety management process. Safety indicators are generally classified as leading or lagging, respectively whether they are active (providing feedback on performance before an accident or incident), or reactive measurements (identifying and reporting on incidents to identify weaknesses and failures). Leading indicators have been largely addressed as early warning instruments crucial to assess the potent...
