N+1 Institute announces GE HealthCare as its founding member. Together, they’ll explore edge computing as a route to faster biohealth innovation within patient monitoring.

In advance of its official launch event on May 6, the N+1 Institute announces GE HealthCare, a leading global medical technology, pharmaceutical diagnostics, and digital solutions innovator with a rich Wisconsin history, as its founding member. The collaboration will explore artificial intelligence (AI) and edge computing as a means of improving precision and flexibility in patient monitoring technology.  

Part of the Department of Computer Sciences within the School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences (CDIS), the N+1 Institute’s mission is to create unique pathways for industry-university collaboration. In addition to speeding up development and adoption of innovative technology, the industry membership model also provides students with valuable hands-on learning experiences. 

The collaboration announcement comes on the heels of a huge win for the state’s biohealth industry. In October, the Biden-Harris administration formally designated Wisconsin as a Regional Tech Hub “promot[ing] innovation in personalized medicine.”
