Drs Jen & Jon Silva on AR in the OR

Jennifer and Jon Silva are cofounders of SentiAR, a groundbreaking mixed reality visualization company that announced the close of an oversubscribed $5.1 million Series A on April 13th, 2021.  Jennifer Silva, MD is a Washington University in St. Louis pediatric cardiologist and director of pediatric electrophysiology at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Her husband Jon Silva, PhD, is a biomedical engineer at Washington University’s School of Medicine. Together, Jennifer and Jon cofounded SentiAR, a 3D augmented reality platform featuring real-time holographic visualization of the patient’s actual anatomy “floating” over the patient. The visualization is fully controllable “hands-free” by the clinician, providing an ergonomic breakthrough for the treatment and analysis of cardiac arrhythmias within an interventional catheter lab environment.

Om Podcasten

The Prepare.ai Podcast explores the fast-paced world of emerging tech from the landscape of the Midwest, with a distinctly non-coastal vibe. Hosted by technologists Fully Teasdale and Dave Costenaro, the Prepare.ai Podcast highlights great work across artificial intelligence and machine learning, data science at scale, virtual reality and augmented reality, and robotics and robotic process automation, and features folks from boots-on-the-ground implementers to vision-creating founders. The Podcast is produced by Prepare.ai, a 501c3 whose mission is to increase collaboration around 4th-industrial revolution technologies in order to advance the human experience. We’re doing it from the heart of the Midwest, where the 1st- and 2nd-industrial revolutions brought growth and innovation, and where the 3rd eroded jobs and urban landscapes. This time, we will not be left behind. We will lead, not follow. Help us Prepare.
