team_incision_robin_vergouwen

AI Video Assessment Lead

Robin Vergouwen

I am intrigued by the similarities and differences of the human brain and the ‘computer brain’. How do we perceive the world around us? How do we see what is present in an image or a video? And how can we make a computer understand what is present in an image or a video?

At Incision, I am trying to answer this question on a daily basis by developing algorithms that can automatically analyse surgical images and videos with the use of Artificial Intelligence. It is amazing to work towards realizing the potential of standardized analysis and feedback generation in the field of surgical training.

He is fondly regarded by his university students as the Mr. Nice guy and he intends to live up to that spirit by inspiring new innovations in the areas of Obstetrics, Gynecology and other specialized forms of surgeries. He works very hard during the week with a countdown to Friday evenings when he forgets all challenges and all that matter is to catch up with his buddies. Married to a prettiest wife and with two very fantastic kids, Moses enjoys spending time with them at any given instant. He joins Incision as a regional African representative.
