Many countries around the world are aging rapidly and healthcare needs for the elderly are expanding. In this conversation, Prof. Yong Lee will meet with Tania Coke to discuss how she is using new technologies to assist in healthcare for the elderly in Japan, a super-aging society, as well as the challenges and opportunities of becoming an entrepreneur. The conversation engages students enrolled in the course Application, Ethics, and Governance of AI, but is open to the wider Notre Dame community, especially those who may be interested in entrepreneurship, technology, healthcare, and aging.
Tania Coke is the CEO and Co-Founder of Tellus, a start-up in San Francisco that applies new technologies for elderly care. Prior to founding Tellus, Tania worked at Google and Capital IQ in product and strategy roles. She has also held research positions at Harvard Medical School and MIT's McGovern Institute for Brain Research. She graduated from Stanford with her master's in Engineering where she was a DFJ Entrepreneurial Fellow.
