AI has pervaded our homes, our cars, and now, our hospitals. Genomic. proteomic and metabolomic technologies have enabled us to treat disease more precisely. Sensors have shrunk. And have become invisible. Flexible. And even self-healing. They are built into our devices, and into our phones, and are the basis for 24 hour care – and increasingly used in drug discovery. Massive data sets are now used to monitor, detect, and address so many conditions, from heart disease to mental illness to the deterioration of gait in Parkinson’s disease. Brain computer interfaces are allowing the disabled to walk, and the blind to navigate. Robots, and NLP tools such as Alexa, let seniors to age in place, gracefully. All of this makes healthcare accessible and more accurate. To those in Palo Alto and Kendall Square, of course – but also to those in poor and underserved places.
This, is a revolution.
Following seven events over three years at Stanford, MIT, UCSF and the New York Academy of Sciences, the editors of ApplySci look forward to welcoming you to the 8th Wearable Tech + Digital Health + NeuroTech Silicon Valley conference at Stanford this February.
The conference is co-sponsored by the Stanford Wearable Electronics Initiative (e-WEAR). Become an affiliate member of e-WEAR and learn more about Stanford activities on wearable electronics. The annual affiliate member meeting will follow the conference.
We invite you to join us as we explore the radical reinvention of healthcare.
