Anthony is a healthcare technology advisor and former CEO of Optasia Medical. After completing his PhD in 2001 with the University of Manchester Imaging Science group in breast cancer detection in mammograms, he joined Image Metrics to help commercialise machine learning algorithms in the healthcare, media and security domains. From 2006 until 2018 he worked at Optasia Medical, applying machine learning to musculoskeletal disease areas and obtaining regulatory clearance in Europe and the USA for medical device software. As CEO from 2013, he invented and managed the development of ASPIRE, a machine-learning powered and CQC-regulated teleradiology service for the diagnosis and referral of osteoporotic vertebral fracture patients, now deployed in several NHS Trusts. Anthony now works with a number of companies and universities, advising them on all aspects of commercialisation of machine learning.
