Johnson & Johnson MedTech (J&J MedTech) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with NVIDIA to expedite the deployment and scaling of AI in surgical settings.

This partnership aims to improve real-time surgical data analysis and expand the global availability of AI algorithms for surgical decision-making, education, and connected operating rooms collaboration.

The MoU will see the integration of NVIDIA’s healthcare AI platform with J&J MedTech’s surgical technologies.

These technologies will enable quick, secure, and real-time deployment of AI through J&J MedTech’s digital surgery ecosystem.

J&J MedTech worldwide chairman and executive vice-president Tim Schmid said: “J&J MedTech is advancing healthcare toward a future that’s more connected and personalised.

“This future will be increasingly enabled by digital technologies that deliver efficiency, inform decision-making, and extend surgical training and education. Our deep heritage in healthcare and digital ecosystem in surgery and NVIDIA’s AI platforms hold enormous potential to create a more connected surgical experience.”
