The competition, comprised of 50 finalists, takes place this month in Austin, Texas with entries from all over the world. The local companies selected include Derq, which aims at “eliminating road accidents and saving lives” by using artificial intelligence and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2X) technology to predict accidents before they happen. Pathware, which provides real-time pathology and biopsy results with more than 96% accuracy, which ultimately reduces the need for patients to have repeat procedures. The third area company is MySideKick, an app that is designed to address sexual assault on college campuses through interfaces that provide education, confidential support, and accurate reporting of incidents.
