Check out the new episode of If we impact the futur of… », the video series that questions future technological challenges, launched by the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab, the Dassault Systèmes accelerator. Presented by tech journalist, Marion Moreau, and Frédéric Vacher, Director of Innovation at Dassault Systèmes, you will discover two deeptech start-ups that are tackling the health and well-being of all, by developing breakthrough innovations. .
For nearly 10 years, the 3DEXPERIENCE open innovation lab, led by Dassault systems, has been accelerating the development of disruptive tech start-ups in the fields of health,energy, mobility, having a strong impact on societies. You will discover in this new episode, two start-ups accelerated by the lab: Inali and BrainSight AI.
Inali: a prosthesis accessible to developing countries
Prashant Gade, founder and CEO of Inali, recalls that in India many people live with a disability physique, the cost of prostheses from Europe and the United States being so high (more than 10,000 dollars), that it is almost impossible to equip yourself with them. By founding Inali, Prashant and his team have made it their mission to develop electronic prostheses accessible to all. Featuring six different models of movements pre-programmed with options for accuracy and grip strength, they work by detecting signals from the brain.
This breakthrough innovation was partly made possible thanks to the technology offered by the 3DExperience lab. Visualizing the design prototype in 3D reduces prototyping iterations, production time and, in finesave moneyargent. « 5 years ago, we saw in Inali an industry capable of changing the way we look porte about health in indiaexplains Prashant Gade. The 3DExperience Lab was a blessing for us, and allowed us to realize this project ».
BrainSight AI, a tool for deep learning to help in the early detection of mental disorders
BrainSightAI, founded by Laina Emmanuel and Rimjhim Agrawal, creates tools for diagnostic based onIA which can aid in functional investigation of the brain to detect early signs of dementia.
« We believe there is a new way to analyze the brain, an intrinsic wayemphasizes Laina Emmanuel. The problem is: how to penetrate its internal architecture? This is the tool we are building! »

The two major complexities lie in the construction of the data pipeline allowing to build the AI on the one hand. Each brain has 86 million neurones with their connections in each direction. Imagine having to analyze 86 million cars to draw a pattern from it and be able to say that it matches XYZ. On the other hand, 3D visualization of the brain is intended for doctors.
The software made available by the 3DExperience Lab was a great help to them and allowed them to focus on their R&D. Currently, they are working with a hospital for the detection of dementia and other clinics for tumors.
