Innovation on Vision: Imaging , Enhancement and Simulation

Vitor Pamplona is a specialist on patient-centric eye diagnostics. Vitor is co-founder and CTO of one of the most disruptive health startups in the US, EyeNetra Inc., co-founder of PUBBoston, a science discussion group for Brazilians living in the New England and co-producer of science-based YouTube Channel Panorama Brasil Boston. PhD in Computer Science, Vitor created award-winning two-dollar smartphone snap-ons to measure refractive errors (NETRA) and map cataracts (CATRA), a research that would later be named as one of the biggest MIT achievements of 2010 by the Provost. Vitor also pioneered seven patented technologies for eye relaxation, accommodation control and objective methods to map refractive errors from smartphone pictures; created novel physiologically-based models of human eyes, new methods for interactive assessment of retinal images, and a new 3D display that eliminate the need of corrective eyeglasses. He is a recipient of the Silver Thomas Edison Award 2012, NASA Health Innovation Award 2010, the Vodafone Innovation Award 2011 and is one of the few PhD students that published 4 academic papers as first author at the prestigious ACM SIGGRAPH conference. In Brazil, Vitor is known for co-founding one of the largest collaboration platforms for software engineers reaching 50k portuguese-speaking developers in the early 2000s (JavaFree), the first portuguese-speaking on-line portal for Ruby (RubyOnBr), the first 3D game engine for feature phones and the first image-based gesture-tracing glove (IBDG). He founded his first technology company when he was 15 years-old, worked full-time on the IT sector throughout his 5 years in college, is a live streamer of innovation and has a penchant for open-source software.
