And we’re like, “Why is nobody working on this?” And so that was sort of the toolset, the framework that we used when we went looking for that killer application. Hyliion has developed patent pending hybrid electric system for Semi-Trailers and Trucking Industry. You know, leaders IN the medical device world, the pharma world, VC, you know, plays big and healthcare, hedge funds and other institutional investors. The genesis of EnsoData kind of came out of a course called biomedical engineering student design. Coding and writing in the car was a very common occurrence for us at the early stages as we parallel across those words. That’s an area that we’re really excited about. I studied less, I slept more. And some treatments may just not kind of totally circumvent the underlying reason, the underlying causes. We talk about analyzing sleep data, solving hard data analysis problems with AI, and bootstrapping enough data into data ecosystem to build and validate the product. Fernandez used his expertise to design and then clinically validate EnsoData’s pioneering technology, Waveform AI. So our CTO and I decided to go into the Master’s degree programs, the graduate program for Biomedical Engineering. That’s basically I worked less. Working with Phase2 felt like working with members of our own team. What we initially built was a device that would wirelessly measure pulse oximeter data, so blood oxygen content and heart rate, would measure it from your earlobe, and it used advanced multimodal wireless systems to push that data up to the cloud through a combination of cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networks, and utilize powerful machine learning in the cloud, try to help keep congestive heart failure patients and other complex cardiac patients out of the hospital. All three EnsoData employees have an intensive background in handling big data. And in a speciality, there are so many undiagnosed patients out there that need help and can really improve their quality of life and their health by getting access to these services. Those companies need to win against each other. If you imagine really tired parents and their ability to sort of, you know, help all their kids in various ways, you know, the impact that you can have really isn’t just even limited to one person, but it can impact positively a lot of people in their environment, in their community as well. EnsoData, whose software uses machine learning algorithms to help clinicians score sleep data and diagnose patients with sleep apnea and other … You know, we transitioned from undergrad to grad. And we’ve taken an approach to try to, not to try to but to leverage artificial intelligence to do that analysis automatically, and to achieve such a high level of quality that clinicians can really establish a level of comfort and confidence in that analysis to be able to go through it much more quickly than they’d otherwise be able to. So you get to taste everything. Tyne & Wear. If you want to support this and see if we can even have a shot at making it happen, kind of that’s what we need to do. I’m a huge music fan, both listening to it, live, and recorded, and making it. So it was a good round. Meb: I used to go to the JP Morgan conference every year so I actually started out as a biotech equity analyst in the depths of the last big internet biotech busts. Chris has an MS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and brings more than three years of advanced algorithms and big data research experience to EnsoData. Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, it’s only one third the cost to do it at home, as it would be in clinic setting. Then we looked at each other. Meb: What’s been the most memorable moment of this entrepreneur journey of the past? Chris Fernandez, EnsoData Businesses that offer HST logistics have been popular. There are surgical procedures as well.

Chris Fernandez Senior Project Manager - Azure Cloud Infrastructure / 0365. We have continued to do that. And now we live in a world with, you know, more data than we conceived that we could even store a decade ago. We kind of clash and meet somewhere in the middle. No…It’s Just Getting Going In Some Ways”. EnsoData leads the world in reading and understanding these waveforms, starting with sleep. And so, I played this game, if we wanna try to find the specialty of medicine that doesn’t use waveforms for something important, I’m able to find one yet. EnsoData leads the world in reading and understanding these waveforms, starting with sleep. Thanks so much for joining us today. Thank you for your continued support. Chris: There’s a few different directions. That has created patient and payer preferences around that. Chris: Howdounsedated.com, we publish blogs. All this and more in episode 239 with Chris Fernandez. You know, we’re already optimizing the time and the cost that’s involved with diagnosing patients, and then on the back end, really being able to try to bring personalized and precision medicine into a reality. But ultimately folks advised that if you wanna do a business like this in healthcare, it’s generally nice to have, to some kind of a degree, you should probably finish that, he said. There’s a lot of, I’m gonna run out of money, all that stuff. “Sleep apnea is a condition that plagues nearly one billion people worldwide, and we’re uniquely positioned to address this massive problem,” says Chris Fernandez, CEO of EnsoData, in a release. You know, an asymptote to zero cost of the sensors that are used. Got my doctorate plenty in stats courses but learned a lot. Chris Fernandez. So I think that we feel really, really lucky to have been able to, you know, secure this financing during the pandemic, during tremendous economic uncertainty. I think that we’ve seen what, you know, somewhere between years, probably years of the trend in the shift towards Thompson testing, which we felt was inevitable, get compressed into a span of days and weeks during COVID. So we had somebody that was phenomenally experienced in medicine, venture capital, startups, and kind of running a business. And that was the application of AI to waveform. You know, Matthew Walker at Berkeley wrote a book “Why We Sleep,” that was really popular. Meb: I imagine people are listening to this, they’re talking about a lot of the wearables like aura rings with the NBA, going potentially back to playing games this summer, about being able to try to keep an eye on COVID. Can you walk through kind of where we are here in 2020, what other fun expansions either this analysis or other things you guys are looking at to the extent you can talk about it? That lasted for like 30 minutes. We ended up having, I wanna say, audio meetings in three days or four days. We envision ourselves as sort of the digital health infrastructure that can analyze their data so well, that it turns out something like MongoDB, where, yeah, you could code your own database. And, you know, we got to it. “We know that not everyone has access to quality and affordable treatment, and have the conviction that our technology can help bridge that gap. Chris has 7 jobs listed on their profile. And we’re able to really maintain continuity and patient access to these important, you know, sleep services during these hard times. Meb: It’s funny, I was listening to tell that story, I mean, there’s so much randomness, serendipity with just life, and entrepreneurship, and hearing all the twists and turns. We’ve done some initial validation of our software in several areas outside. And it can contain 20 sensors or more. But today we do live in a world where effectively all sleep medicine care can be done virtually. EnsoData is a startup that utilizes artificial intelligence to analyze the human body to diagnose health conditions. Even at the starting point, we were in the 100 gig range, and then quickly, we got into the hundred terabyte range for that. In both 2019 and 2018, EnsoData quadrupled the size of its customer base, according to Fernandez. Ensodata’s AI and machine learning powered signal analysis platform enables clinicians to automate complex and time consuming data interpretation tasks. in Biomedical Engineering from UW-Madison and brings more than five years of artificial intelligence and big data research experience to EnsoData. In today’s episode, we’re talking all things sleep. And, you know, when you’re talking about sleep apnea, ultimately, you’re talking about hundreds of thousands of events per patient that need to be manually done. We get into the long-term vision for the company, and even the potential for transferability of their algorithms and AI into other areas outside of sleep. We’ve published more than 12 peer-reviewed papers on the interface of AI and healthcare, 2015. And if it does work, we’re still gonna need to go get an FDA clearance afterwards. “We wanna get connected. So we’re like, “I guess we want this. And we’ve been ramping up our webinars as well. Madison, WI. And so once we got the FDA approval, got the FDA permits, we had some pineapple orange juice mimosas. We were a solution looking for a problem. “Sleep apnea is a condition that plagues nearly one billion people worldwide, and we’re uniquely positioned to address this massive problem,” said Chris Fernandez, CEO of EnsoData.

Chris Fernandez Co-founder & CEO at EnsoData. Chris: We got 15 now. When do you think that’ll happen? All three EnsoData employees have an intensive background in handling big data. We wanna…” IoT was a big thing back then. In today’s episode, we’re talking all things sleep. And I think that he saw that we had a level of determination that represented, “We’re gonna do this, whether or not he helped us and we’re gonna bang our heads a lot in the process.” And so I think that he convinced himself that he needed to save us some pain and became one of our earliest kind of mentors and advisors. About a year ago, the FDA cleared EnsoSleep for … There are real limitation…. The first part is, you know when you know. What’s the headcount out now? Meb Faber Research – Stock Market and Investing Blog, Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams (Walker), The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time (Huffington), Episode #238: Mark Straub, Smile Identity, “Face Recognition Is, In A Sense, Deep Technology”, Episode #240: Stefan Batory, Booksy, “This Is Probably The Last Major Vertical That’s Not Digitalized…And This Is A Massive Space”, Episode #274: Mitch Baruchowitz, Merida Capital Holdings, “Is The Trade Over?

And that includes things like five different kinds of sleep stages, apneas, hypopneas, blood oxygen, saturations, neurological arousals, bradycardia, tachycardia. And, you know, whether or not there’s economic downturns, whether or not there’s pandemics, this needs to happen. And so, you know, even to something like an image, waveform data is heavily unstructured. And so I think that’s just an example of some of the categories and tools that are available in machine learning and AI that aim to address that problem directly. Here’s the kind of the bunk where we do all this work. Same platform but with new and improved features. we ended up getting quite a multiple of that in commitments in terms of our subscription. So for folks out there that like to jam, stop by any time, over under, not this year, unfortunately, really hopeful that by Q1 of next year, hopefully, early next year, we’re starting to have those opportunities.

As Paul Graham says, “If you don’t die, you’ll eventually win.” Stay in the game. And it was simple. And we then hired our COO, Brock from Epic systems. But you guys have your hands involved in a lot of other different ideas and stuff. What novel sensors can we add to it? And then they did this procedure that we called transfer learning to try to use what the AI had learned about pulling out useful information, structures, regularities, patterns out of that format of imaging data, and to just try to generalize and borrow some of those learnings to apply it so that they could juice up performance on this much smaller data set. I was a fellow biomedical engineer. Founder EnsoData • Worked at @ Innovative Signal Analysis, @ Hitachi Global Storage Technologies • Studied at @ University Of Wisconsin Madison. We wanna go wireless. Is there also any sort of at-home sort of diagnostic or is there any sort of kits on the horizon where people could self-test at all or what’s the lay of the land for sleep clinic base, in general? Today, they’re 80% to 90% undiagnosed. Chris has 1 job listed on their profile. Each product has its own unique sort of sample size and fiscal power that go into that design.
