What do we do at xbird?

We are a medical AI company, using the most advanced technology to save 1 million lives by 2020. Employing the latest know-how in data science and machine learning, our technology captures data streams from the built-in sensors of smartphones and wearables and analyzes these to detect critical health events before they occur.  


Data Collection

We extract millions of data points from smartphone sensors, wearables and medical devices, combining environmental and digital biomarkers.   

Pattern recognition

Our data scientists and medical experts combine these data points and identify patterns leading to critical health events.


Patient interaction

We help companies integrating with our SDK to augment their existing products and add value to their user interaction.

Why are we doing this? 


Every minute 8 people die from a preventable disease. Often the reason for these deadly outcomes is due to the fact, that critical symptoms are simply detected too late. Is this necessary? We believe it’s not. A more reliable, automatic and early detection of the very first signs could significantly improve this shortcoming. We think technology is the remedy to overcome this systematic health care problem. 



How are we doing this?

We are already using our solution for diabetes patients to detect and prevent hypoglycaemia. We realize this by collecting valuable insights about the behavioral component of diabetes and its impact on blood sugar levels. Our algorithm detects micro-movements through the sensors built into smartphones and wearables and interprets these into daily activities and special events that have an impact on their condition. This happens automatically, without any need for manual logging. By taking into account these digital biomarkers it is possible to put hypoglycaemia into context and predict it. 

Interdisciplinary Team. Shared Goal.


We are a team of medical doctors, data scientists and serial entrepreneurs. Our motivation is to improve health care and to save lives with the aid of technology.
