“Biology is an Information-based Technology” ~ Ray Kurzweil

As healthcare accelerates toward a data-driven environment, breakthroughs and innovation in medical technology and therapies will be directly related to the ability to access information and to turn data into useable knowledge. Healthcare providers and life sciences organizations have an ever-increasing need to gather, manage, store, integrate, share and analyze data in order to optimize patient outcomes and transform healthcare worldwide.

“Information Technology will Drive Innovation in Healthcare”

BRINK INSTITUTE is dedicated to fostering and facilitating curated conversations with the makers, doers and disrupters who are shaping our future.

Over the course of four days, November 9-12 in the inimitable Irish countryside, BRINK Summit Ireland endeavours to provide transformational knowledge, spark conversation and inspire collaboration among global leaders in medical technology; and to showcase an unprecedented breadth and depth of innovative products, therapies, and services in order to usher in the next evolution in medicine that will: alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life.





This exclusive BRINK event brings together global leaders in robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, quantum biology and machine learning, together with pioneers in information technology, big data, cloud-computing, imaging, 3-D printing, and systems biology in this very special event in SPRIN 2017.

These leaders in their respective fields are coming together in an unprecedented collaborative think and do effort to increase our knowledge of the essence of life and humanity, and to promote collaboration, spark integrated technology-based solutions to real-world evolutionary challenges, and address the logistical questions surrounding our ability to control our own creations, and the ethical concerns over whether we should or should not.

Join us as we explore new technologies and forward movement in verticals including:

  • Extreme Robotics
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Virtual Reality
  • Augmented Reality
  • Gaming
  • Education
  • Cognitive Computing
  • Cryonics
