On September 24th at Noontime in SGM-106 we will host our next ABCD-LMA talk with Engineers from Apple whom will talk about Apple's Research Kit.

Apple Inc. Consulting Engineers will describe use cases of medical researchers who have begun development on Researchkit.  Following the use cases, there will be a technical discussion explaining how to develop with Researchkit. This will be followed by  Q&A.

Millions of people around the world have an IPhone in their pocket.  Each iPhone is equipped with powerful processors and advanced sensors that can track movement, take measurements and record information- functions that can contribute significantly to medical studies.  Apple recently delivered ResearchKit, where researchers can create apps that take advantage of iPhone features to gather new types of data on a scale that was not available before.
