The Power List 2017

Edward Korot

RESIDENT Physician, Department of Ophthalmology, Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, MI, USA

An ophthalmology resident with a keen interest in the application of novel technology to ophthalmology, Korot started medical school as a TEDMED Frontline Scholar. He’s now a leading light in the application of algorithms and AI  to detect signs of disease in ophthalmic images. His first publication described the creation of an algorithm that analyzes vitreous cell density in DME – and it may be the first ever objective measure of vitreous inflammation. His interest in algorithms and AI had led him to collaborate with Pearse Keane (qv) on his AI retinal image analysis work. This, combined with his prior experience with electronic health record consulting, has also led him to consult with Google Deepmind on their Streams app, which is being developed to help streamline physician alerts and task management. He’s also collaborating with another Silicon Valley company, Avegant, to adapt their wearable retinal projection display for use in ophthalmic microsurgery.
