  TMU  and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) held the 2017 Sana Hackathon at the Da’an Campus October 6-8. MIT sent 7 representatives to Taiwan who together with the TMU representatives served as a 20-member international teaching group that discussed how to stimulate innovations and entrepreneurship in health care information. This teaching group addressed individual concerns and questions and offered seminars on specific topics.

These seminars included a session on medical applications of artificial intelligence by Sana leader Dr. Leo Anthony Celi, the clinical research director of MIT’s laboratory of computational physiology. Sana is a cross-disciplinary organization hosted at the Laboratory for Computational Physiology at MIT’s Institute for Medical Engineering and Science. It includes clinicians and engineers as well as policy, public health, and business experts to adapt the latest technologies to build sustainable practical solutions to global problems along the entire health care value chain.

Another seminar by Ba-Zheng Li, who leads the National Health Insurance Administration, discussed health care data applications. Dr. Matthieu Komorowski, a leader in the field of bioastraunautics, shared his experiences with health care simulation training for Mars research center astronauts, while FORMASAT-5 project director He-Ben Zhang from the National Space Organization shared his thoughts on bioastronautics challenges.

MIT Biotechnology Group founder James Weis, Taipei Biotech Association executive secretary Ming-Feng Lu and TMU Biostatistics Research Center analyst Yang-Kuang Lin also led a biotechnology and entrepreneurship workshop to help motivate the participants.

While last year’s topic was wearable devices and the “health internet of things,” this year’s theme was medical applications. Topics included data collection and biomedical big data, particularly use of the latest and hottest AI technologies to analyze biomedical big data and to visualize this information for presentation in order to motivate changes in individual behavior.

The Hackathon collaboration between TMU and MIT integrates the strengths of both institutions, using their expertise in health care and information technology to stimulate innovation. In this way, competitors can better connect with the international community, broaden their world views, and pave the way for future medical and biotechnology products.
