Nextgen Ventures invests 500k in smart learning solution

Tue, 17 July 2018

The digital company Alledaags from Groningen recently received a 500k investment from the northern investment fund Nextgen Ventures to further develop a unique, smart learning enviroment for health care. This learning tool makes education within health care more efficient and effective because of the use of artificial intelligence. One of the first users of the new learning enviroment is the UMCG on the Healthy Ageing Campus, part of Campus Groningen.

 

Personalise the learning process

Within health care it is common practice to take refresher courses, and the content is usually not tailored to the individual. Most of the time existing knowledge and the different paces of learning by health care professionals is not taken into account. Alledaags has developed a way to adjust the content to the indovidual that is taking the course. This personalising of the learning process is a new development that ows its existence to artificial intelligence and big data. One of the first users of the tool will be radiologists to train a new protocol for screening lung cancer.

In partnership with University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) and Center of Medical Imaging (CMIs), Alledaags developed a learning platform for radiologists to learn how to screen for lung cancer in order to prevent 20% of the avoidable deaths.

"In addition to the ambition to let people learn smarter, developing with this unique new learning material is doubly amazing. Thanks to the investment of Nextgen Ventures, we are able to launch our learning environment as Alledaags. We are proud to share our ambitions with the UMCG and to contribute to the fight against lung cancer.”
