The Future of Health Care: Robotics, Metadata, Sensory

October 22, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Edie Weiner, a renowned futurist, will keynote this event and moderate a panel of women leaders in the health care space.

The panelists will look far into the future to predict what might be happening in exciting tech-related areas.

What is the future of robot caretakers in Japan and beyond? Julie Bauer, president of Panasonic Consumer Corp. of North America, will give us the scoop and talk about how the company – a world leader in robotics – is developing medical robots to help with patient care.

Looking ahead with regard to genomics, the average person will throw off 1.2 or 1.3 terabytes of data – how is any human going to be able to process all of that data and make it useful to clinicians at the point of care? Louisa Roberts, associate partner at IBM Watson Life Sciences, will discuss how Watson – the computer that beat geniuses on Jeopardy! – will be able to democratize health care and help prevent disease before it materializes.

How might sensory stimulation, including taste and smell, be impacted by health care in the future? Tina Garyantes, an expert in sensory science and VP of Innovation at Chromocell, will fill us in.

Join us as we travel forward in time – to 2020 and beyond – to have a peek at the future of health care.
