Linda Kenworthy, the Health and Life Sciences Industry Manager for Intel Americas, speaks about Intel’s participation in this year’s Cleveland Medical Hackathon as well as her perspectives on last year’s event. This year, Intel is providing a keynote talk kicking off the hackathon as well as a Tech Talk on the technology that Intel will share during the event. As part of Intel’s participation, they will have Arduino 101* boards featuring the Intel® Curie™ Module, available for Hackathon teams to use as part of their projects.
The Intel® Curie™ Compute Module is an Intel® Quark™ system on a chip that provides a complete low-power solution for wearable devices and consumer or industrial edge products. The module has a built-in six-axis combination sensor, includes a Bluetooth* low energy (Bluetooth LE) radio, and features low power usage and pattern-matching capabilities for analyzing sensor data, making it the perfect board for building “always-on” projects like health and fitness trackers.
