How we are conceived, how we live and die – this is all going to change in a critically important way.
Science and technology are extending, optimising and revolutionising the different stages of life.
Geneticists, biotechnologists and doctors are reconfiguring our bodies.
We’re entering the age of medicine 4.0 in the same way that we did for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We’re increasingly seeing pharma laboratories enter into partnerships with the big digital players.
You’ve got the rise in teleconsultation, the decoding of DNA at great speed, the end of infertility, AI, the pursuit of eternal youth, the possibility of curing ourselves through our smartphones, whose sensors can become effective tools to detect medical conditions.
Welcome to the world of e-health.
At the same time, we’re witnessing never seen before rates of development of future medicines and health services which take advantage of new data technologies and AI. The recent announcement of the link-up between Google and Sanofi to create a new innovation healthcare lab is one such example.
The gathering and use of data will help revolutionise the healthcare industry – the goal is to move towards more personalised medicine, both at the diagnosis and treatment stages.
AI possesses two non-human capabilities that are very important: connectivity and the ability to generate updates. For example, if the WHO identifies a new illness or new treatment/medicine, it’s impossible to inform doctors around the world of the changes. Imagine several million AI doctors globally, each keeping tabs on a single human being, a single patient – you can update them all in a fraction of a second.
The US National Library of Medicine’s database contains more than 5,600 medical journals, each one publishing hundreds of articles every year. But there are millions of medical files around the world. You may have wondered how many times your doctor has ignored an important piece of information relating to your health, not to mention the limited time that you’re afforded. Wouldn’t it make life so much easier if with a few clicks doctors could access millions of data points which a PC would correlate and extract key information that the human brain couldn’t pick up?
There is no doubt that life sciences is one of the fields that’s undergoing the most rapid levels of innovation.
For all these reasons, it’s crucial that all the major players in the life sciences industry can attract the most creative and agile minds. Our mission is to help you achieve just that.
