The Orb: Designing Technology to Save Lives

The Orb aims to significantly improve cardiac arrest detection. This is achieved by integrating life-saving AI technology as a support tool for emergency dispatchers – in a humanised design.

The Jury says
This is technology that works for humans, not the other way around. It supports emergency dispatchers to make better decisions in their work and demonstrates a very high level of innovation in the field of AI. It is far more than a smart speaker. The design has a human aspect and works in a non-intrusive way. We will see many more instances of this technology and this solution shows the potential of design to work with artificial intelligence.
