14th May 2021: Lifelight are delighted to announce Dr. Shahin Rostami as its Head of Data Science
Shahin who has been a true early advocate of Lifelight, supporting us for a number of years to help guide our leverage of machine learning, joins us from Bournemouth University where he is now a Visiting Fellow. A faculty member for 7 years, Shahin holds a PhD in Computational Intelligence and was Senior Academic (Associate Professor) in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
Alongside his work at Lifelight, Shahin continues to collaborate with a number of universities through joint publications, reviewing for high-impact journals and conferences as well as supervising PhD students on university research projects, encouraging open access dissemination of research and educational content.
As Lifelight’s Head of Data Science, Shahin’s focus will be to efficiently build on our machine learning to continually ensure the accuracy of our vital sign measurements.
“We are delighted to welcome Shahin to the Lifelight family and value his input greatly as a professional with a vast amount of experience in both AI and Data Science,” says Laurence Pearce, CEO & Founder of Lifelight.
Laurence continues, “Accelerated by the pandemic, Lifelight supports the critical need for global remote patient monitoring. Being a 100% contactless solution Lifelight is at the forefront of this shift but equally we are ensuring our solution is regulated and validated against traditional healthcare devices. One of our key assets is our unique high quality clinical data. Shahin will play a pivotal role in maximising its value in optimising our blood pressure and future algorithms.”
“As a supporter of Lifelight for a number of years, I am happy to be working with the company at this significant time when we are witnessing true change in healthcare delivery,” says Shahin.
Shahin adds, “COVID-19 has highlighted the obvious need for accessible healthcare for all and Lifelight is well positioned to obtain remote vital sign measurements safely and via a non-contact, easy-to-use interface – one readily available in many people’s pocket – a smartphone. Given the potential global impact of the technology, I am looking forward to working with the team to continue to build and evolve Lifelight.”
Shahin has authored many peer-reviewed research publications and four books on the subjects of Data Science, Visualisation and Evolutionary Computation. He has also authored and published a profitable Software as a Service (SaaS), a full-featured visualisation API for producing beautiful interactive visualisations that have been used in publications by companies and institutions in industry, government and academia.
