BRISTOL, UK— December 20, 2023 — EarSwitch® today announced it has joined NVIDIA Inception, a programme that nurtures startups revolutionising industries with technological advancements.
EarSwitch is focused on developing in-ear innovation for licensees to accelerate medical and interactive technology applications. By integrating its biometric sensor and hands-free control technology into handheld medical devices, hearing aids, and other wearables, EarSwitch allows licensees to gain access to racially inclusive health insights and augment human-to-environment interactions. The recording of multi-biometric, real-world data – and the storing of it within EarSwitch’s responsible cloud architecture – also creates an opportunity for AI models to transform diagnoses, gather population-level health insights, and more.
Joining NVIDIA Inception will allow EarSwitch to learn from NVIDIA’s expertise in virtualised medical technology, accelerated computing, and AI as the company develops its suite of groundbreaking EarMetric health biometric and EarControl technologies. This is alongside sharing its objectives with potential investors within the wearables, AI-enabled health technology, and research sectors and building greater brand awareness. The programme will also offer EarSwitch the opportunity to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other AI-driven organisations.
“EarSwitch technology intends to accelerate AI-assisted healthcare, health research, and many other potentially life-saving applications. Joining NVIDIA Inception is extremely exciting for us, and we can’t wait to share insights with other innovators as we continue to develop our technological expertise,” said Dr. Nick Gompertz, Founder of EarSwitch.
NVIDIA Inception helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping, and deployment. Every NVIDIA Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, such as NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute credits, preferred pricing on NVIDIA hardware and software, and technological assistance, which provides startups with the fundamental tools to help them grow.
Founded by former NHS Primary Care Physician Dr. Nick Gompertz, EarSwitch® is developing proprietary in-ear technology with limitless potential. Our in-ear biometric sensor and control technology will transform a range of medical and wellness applications – from connecting patients and practitioners to racially inclusive and multi-biometric real-world data, to augmenting human-to-environment interactions for people with impaired movement.
