Title:

Using Sleep Science and Computer Vision Technologies to Improve Consumer Livelihoods

Abstract:

As “smart” products progress to mass adoption, companies must ensure that the “smart” continues to evolve as much as the “technology”. Nanit is doing exactly that, in the smart nursery space. Merging advanced computer vision with proven sleep science technologies, Nanit provides the most in-depth data available for helping babies, and parents, sleep well in those crucial early months and years of a baby’s development. 

This technology is expandable to the greater population as well, as tracking and understanding sleep patterns and anomalies can lead to early detection of other disease states like sleep apnea, seizures, autism and more.
