Where: Lakehead University, ATAC Building, Room 1010
Register: facebook.com/events/202305813250839

dctbayDemoCamp is a new type of event to Thunder Bay that will be of interest to technology and business innovators alike. This is a night of software demos, tech entrepreneur keynote speakers, followed by cocktails and apps at a local restaurant!

Keynote Speaker: Derek Szeto. Founder and President of Clear Sky Media (parent company of RedFlagDeals.com), CIBC Student Entrepreneur of the Year for Ontario in 2004, and Ontario Finalist for the 2007 Ernst & Young Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

Demos:

NLites: NLites, to be presented by Dr. Arnold Kim. NLites is a unique software platform that allows teams of healthcare providers to collaboratively maintain medical documents containing an up to date summary of the patient they are caring for, which is also machine readable. It is this machine readability that allows for endless possibilities of automation based on machine understanding of the impressions and intentions described within this long overdue overhaul of medical documentation.

Self-Balancing Robot: A collaborative demo of Sean Dunlop and Joshua Kim’s grade 8 science fair project which involved creating an NXT self balancing robot and rotating IR distance detector which are remotely controlled, along with remote data collection by an Android tablet using Bluetooth.

After demos, the group will re-convene at Naxos on Arthur St, for food and drink!
