Talent

‘My work serves a bigger purpose’

Mara Houbraken works as Software Scientist AI at Philips. To her it is really important that her work has true impact. “There is a lot of value in supervising machine learning in AI. My work at Philips serves a bigger purpose, and I am really happy that I actually help make products that make people healthier and have a real global impact. That is important to me. I am proud that I push new technologies into new businesses. For me, it is really important that I can research cutting-edge technologies.” 

Societal impact

Making specialist knowledge available to doctors everywhere

People who work at Philips have a set of capabilities and expertise that they want to put to good use. They pursue a career to do something meaningful. Take AI in health technology for example. The AI solutions Philips designs and builds are sustainable and scalable. They give real insights about a disease, Philips can quickly replicate it anywhere around the world. It can even make it available to doctors that are somewhere close to the patient but far from specialists’ knowledge.

At Dana–Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, one of the best cancer treatment and research centers in the world, for example, over 90% of the patients come from the Boston region. But 90% of cancer patients are diagnosed and treated in a hospital that is not a cancer center. So, one question that concerns the CEO of Dana–Farber is: how can we use technology to make sure that everything they know at Dana–Farber can be made available in community hospitals around the world? “It’s about capturing the knowledge using AI and sharing it around the world, wherever it may be needed. We are in a fantastic time and place to do great things.”
