NEW YORK, July 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBIC) (TSE:2158) ("UBIC" or "the Company"), a leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-based big data analysis services, together with UBIC MEDICAL, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of UBIC that provides AI-based medical data analysis solution services, will participate in the International Modern Hospital Show 2015, which will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight from July 15 to 17, marking the Company's first time to participate in this event. The event is sponsored by the Japan Hospital Association and the Nippon Omni-Management Association. At the event, UBIC and UBIC MEDICAL will introduce their AI-based system to mitigate patients' risk of falling while under hospital care to medical personnel through their joint booth exhibition and seminars.
UBIC and UBIC MEDICAL have been co-developing the AI-based system to mitigate patients' risk of falling with NTT Medical Center Tokyo since March 2015. This system uses AI technology to detect signs of potential falling by analyzing text data contained in electronic medical records, thereby reducing the number of cases of in-hospital injury. This will help prevent unexpected adverse events that may occur in hospitals and enhance the ability of doctors and nurses to efficiently ensure a safe environment for patients. Furthermore, as this technology can be applied to the prevention of other adverse events, the Company is planning to develop it further in the future.
Through the Company's upcoming booth exhibition and seminar, UBIC will explain the results of research intended to reduce accidents, with a particular focus on the detection of disturbances of consciousness such as the decline of alertness and delirium, which are highly likely to lead to a fall.
Details of UBIC's exhibition booth and seminar are as follows:
|Date:||Wednesday, July 15 to Friday, July 17, 2015, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.|
|Location:||Medical information system zone, East Hall, Tokyo Big Sight|
|Date:||Friday, July 17, 2015, 10.30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.|
