Event details

Mihaela van der Schaar will deliver a talk as part of the ITU Journal on Future and Evolving Technologies (ITUJ-FET) webinar series hosted by ITU.


The future of healthcare in the metaverse


In this webinar, the speaker will describe her vision of how the metaverse will transform healthcare. By applying machine learning and AI on data from a variety of devices and sensors, we can better monitor and treat patients at home, in hospitals and in the clinic, and enable patients and clinicians to interact in completely new ways in the metaverse on the basis of the derived analytics. The metaverse will also allow AI-enabled avatars to join multidisciplinary clinical teams, creating more efficient and more advanced health delivery systems. Finally, the speaker will outline a vision of how national and international healthcare systems can interact and be transformed and how clinical trials can be conducted and augmented in the metaverse.
