Trained in electrical and mechanical engineering, Tai is a self-described electromechanical engineer who makes small gadgets that target the four major causes of blindness: cataracts, glaucoma, macular disease, and diabetic retinopathy. He is also working on catheter-tip-sized diagnostic devices that can probe the heart to analyze plaque. Continuing to push boundaries, he is aiming to develop "non-invasive diagnostics and sensors that draw on electrical engineering and electromagnetism to develop approaches for assessing edema and both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. I am also interested in developing drug delivery systems that are wireless and smart." Tai notes that the young researchers he mentors are a critical part of these efforts: "We continue to recruit students and postdocs who are interested in artificial intelligence as it could apply to medicine. I think their influence on devices will change the way we do medicine."
