Wednesday, September 15, sessions kick off with How Technology is Changing Healthcare, presented by Mark Wehde, chair, Mayo Clinic Engineering. “We are well into the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution… the digital platform revolution,” the abstract reads. “A significant beneficiary of this is Healthcare 4.0, which refers to the shift from traditional hospital-centric care to a more virtual, distributed care that heavily leverages the latest technologies around artificial intelligence, deep learning, data analytics, genomics, home-based healthcare, robotics and 3D printing of tissue and implants. This session will explore how these new technologies are going to change how we care for our patients.”

Wednesday presentations also include:

  • Stepping Through the Additive Manufacturing Workflow for Part Qualification
  • Metal Powder Recycling
  • Army Additive Manufacturing Update for Autonomous Ground Vehicles
  • Advancing Additive Manufacturing with Functional Generative Design.
