A graduate of Harvard College and Duke University Medical School, Dr. Albert has founded three tech companies, InnovAlarm, Lifetone Technology and AliveCor, his most recent endeavor, which has developed the mobile ECG or electrocardiogram sensor. The Kardia mobile device, which is aimed at everyone, detects and analyzes heart rhythm with a simple sensor and mobile app. The ECG – sometimes referred to as EKG – is the electrical activity of the heartbeat and the data could help to detect signs of heart disease.  In this in-depth interview, recorded at the USC Center for Body Computing Conference, Dr Albert explains his vision for future medical technology, which he says has the potential to impact disease, aging and enhance human longevity.
