The program kicked off this week in Paris with an in-person summit, bringing together the brightest minds in the AI healthcare space.

Additionally, the program provides mentorship and access to experts across Google Research, Google Health, Verily, Fitbit, and Google DeepMind.

Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death globally, and we aim to change this trajectory by harnessing the power of AI to deliver life-saving innovations in cardiac care. Our technology can diagnose 39 cardiac conditions within seconds using AI, including the ability to detect acute heart attacks three hours ahead and with twice the sensitivity of the current standard of care, making it a breakthrough technology in the fight against cardiovascular diseases.

“The support and resources provided by Google will be instrumental in developing and expanding our life-saving AI technology. We are excited about our plans for global outreach, starting with the U.S. as we await FDA approval and continue building on our strong presence in Europe to bring our advanced solutions to cardiac patients worldwide,” said Felix Bauer, COO of Powerful Medical.
