IPRD’s mission is to improve healthcare systems in LMICs through digital transformation including behavioral change by patients, health workers, and governments
IPRD Solutions was founded by Dr. Keith Hanna in 2017 to innovate digital health technologies to enable transformative solutions in the space of Global Health.
Dr. Hanna led the Vision Systems Group at SRI International, Sarnoff, where he spent 15 years pioneering transformative algorithms and systems in the area of biometrics, computer vision and AI. He co-founded and was the CTO at a major biometrics company for over 10 years. Dr. Hanna has over 25 publications and over 100 patents. He is a pioneer in motion and biometrics, and received the 2007 Most Influential Paper over the Decade Award from the International Association of Pattern Recognition. He has pioneered many leading vision algorithms and systems now used worldwide in consumer, broadcast TV, industrial and Government applications today.
Dr. Hanna has a BA in Engineering Sciences from Oxford University, and a D.Phil in Medical Image Processing and Computer Vision also from Oxford University, working with leading clinicians at the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology on algorithms for the sensitive detection of cataract change to reduce the duration of drug trials.
