POSTED ON: February 20, 2020
On February 13, 2020, Cooper engineering students Paulo Serodio ChE'21, Do Hyung (Dave) Kwon EE'21, and their team “Deliberate” presented at the 2020 Mount Sinai Innovation Showcase and received the winning showcase prize of $25,000.
The Showcase included three finalists from the 2019 Mount Sinai Health Hackathon and two wild card teams. Prior to the Showcase, the teams were mentored by Mount Sinai advisers to strengthen their presentations and learn the fundamentals of business development, customer validation, and funding.
Team Deliberate presented their continued work on “Improving psychotherapy quality of care through confidential recording and analysis.” The idea was first brought to the 2019 Hackathon by Marc Aafjes, Founder and CEO of the new company start-up Deliberate Al. From then on, the team was formed.
Team Deliberate includes Paulo and Dave; Founder and CEO of Deliberate AI Marc Aafjes; Product Lead at Deliberate AI Sky Riggs; Yeshiva University Professor Katie Aafjes-van Doorn; Hardware and Software Engineer William Nitsch; Senior Image Analysis Scientist and Software Engineer Marcel Cicconet; and Translational Medicine Master’s Student Michael Balangue.
The Showcase prize will go towards the new company start-up, where Paulo and Dave will join as part-time software engineers.
