Broad Vision, High Impact

Sir Peng Khaw knows that big data and AI have the power to radically change healthcare. By tapping into experience and knowledge generated over thousands of lifetimes, patients across the globe can be given the same gift: the best possible diagnosis, prognosis and treatment – all contained in an algorithm.

About the Author

Aleksandra Jones

Editor of The Ophthalmologist

Having edited several technical publications over the last decade, I crossed paths with quite a few of Texere's current team members, and I only ever heard them sing the company's praises. When an opportunity arose to join Texere, I jumped at the chance! With a background in literature, I love the company's ethos of producing genuinely engaging content, and the fact that it is so well received by our readers makes it even more rewarding.
