Today, Chris Petersen gave a very nice presentation at ICFP about the development of LambdaNative by the Pediatric Anesthesia Research Team at UBC. It was nice to see a very concrete application of Gambit to health care. The session chair said that a memorable quote from this year's conference is "Scheme saves lives".
In addition to this, it seems that the Pulse Oximeter application developed by the team has been selected by the United Nations as one of the 10 innovations for 2015 to achieve the Millennium Development Goals to decrease maternal and child mortality (http://www.path.org/innovations2015/).
Congratulations to the Pediatric Anesthesia Research Team at UBC!
