Harnessing Advanced Technology Innovations Today and into the Future

Advanced technology innovations are disrupting our world, while aspiring to improve the human experience. The Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data and Analytics, are all part of this evolving landscape. IoT is everywhere, in your homes, cars, labs, and lives. The leverage of all these technology innovations for connected healthcare is a rapidly growing and evolving field, as we journey toward precision medicine and the quest to continually improve health outcomes. From the Internet of Medical Things to computational approaches for cancer, there are efforts around the world to improve outcomes with technology. Connected devices and systems, including wearables and implantables, can be hacked, so we must work as a community to increase the Trust, Identity, Privacy, Protection, Safety and Security (TIPPSS) of the devices, data and humans. We will discuss how to harness the power of advanced technology innovations, while securing the future, including leading standards work in TIPPSS for clinical IoT data and device interoperability, in the evolving and exciting frontier of computational medicine.
