Full bio

Dr. Cory Kidd is the founder and CEO of Catalia Health, a healthcare technology company focused on delivering effective patient engagement and behavior change.  The company has developed a hardware and software platform that uses a combination of psychology and artificial intelligence to successfully engage patients through interactive conversations.  These conversations happen through mobile, web, and socially interactive robot interfaces; together these interfaces create a relationship that can reach patients at any time they need support.  The data reported back through the system gives Catalia Health’s institutional healthcare customers valuable information to understand the daily activities and needs of their patients.

 

Dr. Kidd is a serial entrepreneur who has been working in healthcare technology for nearly two decades.  Catalia Health was Startup in Residence at IDEO, the leading international design firm.  His previous company, Intuitive Automata, created interactive coaches for weight loss.  Prior to this, Dr. Kidd received his M.S. and Ph.D. at the MIT Media Lab in human-robot interaction.  While there, he conducted studies that showed the advantages of using a physical robot over screen-based interactions.  He conducted an extensive study showing the efficacy of his weight loss coach in helping people to diet and did work in local nursing homes with robotic companions for elderly individuals.  He also received his B.S. in Computer Science and was subsequently a research faculty member at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  While there he was a part of the Aware Home Research Initiative, a focused research effort that was looking for ways to allow older people to live in their homes longer.
