AliveCor, a maker of AI-based personal ECG technology and provider of enterprise cardiology solutions, has entered a strategic collaboration with the Clifford Lab at Emory University School of Medicine and the Georgia Institute of Technology. The Clifford Lab will work with AliveCor to use deep learning tools to develop new cardiovascular insights. Dr. Gari Clifford, who leads the Clifford Lab, will serve as an AliveCor consultant.

Since 2014, the Clifford Lab’s team of researchers from Emory and Georgia Tech has conducted work on signal processing, machine learning, and physiological modeling to reduce costs, increase accuracy, and improve access within healthcare. Those efforts have brought application in mobile and wearable devices, including predictive algorithms and scaled analysis of medical data that reaches beyond conventional clinical capacity. The lab is focused on a variety of areas, including critical care, sleep and circadian rhythms, perinatal monitoring, and resource-constrained environments such as those in developing countries.

“When I founded AliveCor, my goal was to move beyond the status quo in cardiac care. To do that, we’ve historically partnered with the best innovators and leading institutions,” said company founder and chief medical officer Dr. Dave Albert. “Dr. Clifford is one of the world’s premier experts on cardiovascular signal analysis and AI. His insight, paired with those from AliveCor’s data science team and the members of the Clifford Lab, allow us to develop even more clinical insights and improve quality of care.”

Clifford’s work with AliveCor will focus on Deep Learning Models, which will drive advanced AI solutions for the company. The collaboration is intended to expand novel cardiovascular insights using deep machine learning with the hopes of releasing research later in 2020. The research will also better inform cardiac care in light of the current pandemic, which is transforming the healthcare landscape dramatically.

“My lab focuses on innovation-led approaches that leverage machine learning and signal processing to inform the complexities of patients,” Clifford said. “AliveCor’s contribution to the lab will help drive the idea that innovation first becomes the industry standard.”
