The Future of Healthcare (and Health)
How have technology developments, both recent and from long ago, affected the future of healthcare, and of health? In this talk, Dr. Selanikio discusses 100 years of information technology and its impact on health and healthcare. Drawing on the work of thinkers from science, business, and healthcare, Dr. Selanikio helps the audience navigate the possible futures of the industry.
Artificial Intelligence, Big Data & Health
From dire predictions of robots replacing doctors, to grand visions of big data transforming research and patient care, the "hype cycle" for artificial intelligence and big data is well underway. Dr. Selanikio helps the audience to see past the buzzwords and hype to understand what is happening, how it came to be, and what we can expect in coming years from these transformative developments.
Global Health in the Age of AI
Recent developments in information technology, especially mobile computing, have scaled more broadly than any previous tech — including to some of the poorest and most remote regions of the world. This new technology can allow new technologies like AI to scale broadly, too. Dr. Selanikio — a physician, epidemiologist, and 25 year veteran of global health efforts around the world — provides deep insight into how this will change access to health expertise.
Collaboration in Science and Medicine
Starting with the "greatest scientific collaboration that never happened," Dr. Selanikio reminds the audience of the very real consequences when collaboration is not possible, or not pursued — and discusses the dramatic increase in science and medicine collaboration made possible by recent technological advances.
Running the Hot Zone: Life in the Ebola Ward
In 2014-2015, Dr. Selanikio spent 6 weeks as the lead clinician at an Ebola Treatment Center in Lunsar Sierra Leone. He brings the audience into this world, discussing the challenges — physical, scientific, and administrative — of caring for those affected by a disease likely to kill both patient and caregiver.
The Consumerization of Health
In our lifetimes we've moved from information technology being only in the realm of governments and corporations to our current situation: where the most advanced technology is the smartphone in your pocket. This has had enormous consequences in business, journalism, government, and the arts — but has not yet on health and healthcare. Dr. Selanikio explains why the advent of big data and AI means that this is about to change, dramatically changing our ideas about health.
