AIA and Hong Kong venture-capital firm Nest hosted their second Accelerator Demo Day at an evening ceremony on Stubbs Road last week. Nine graduates of the accelerator's 12-week healthcare programme pitched their newly refined business models to 200 investors and industry experts in a bid to secure follow-on funding and partnerships. The accelerator featured technology and innovations from around the world, including a glove that translates sign language into text and voice, an application of artificial intelligence to drastically improve medical diagnoses, tele-medicine solutions that connect patients to remote medical specialists and a fitness wearable that combines hardware with personalised training plans.
