Connor founded Eko while studying bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley, with the goal of improving cardiovascular and pulmonary disease monitoring through machine learning and non-invasive sensors.

As you will hear Eko has received FDA clearance for their solution as a medical device that is able to detect heart disease by processing the signals received from the stethoscope and the EKG capability. We discuss the augmentation capability and dive into ChatGPT and its AI tools that is currently taking the internet by storm and what that could mean for healthcare.

Listen in to hear about the incredibly large database of heart sounds and how Eko Health is putting disease detection capabilities comparable to that of an expert cardiologist in any clinician’s stethoscope.
