Both in the second and third horizon that David was describing the future of health, technology will play a major role whether we like it or not. It’s important for individuals and groups that prioritise the well-being of people over profits to also be talking about technology.
Technology is a tool that can be used for good and bad. Hopefully the baby will not be thrown out with the bath water by those more aware of the dangers.
The list of technologies that have the potential to dramatically impact our health (for good or bad) is a very long. Here are a few solutions that could bring positive influence (just some quick ideas that popped into my mind as I’m writing this):
|Online education (E.g. Free access to knowledge and experience)
Health data recording and management (E.g. Mobile phones Recording our habits and suggesting diets)
Research tools (e.g. Analyse data from whatever angle an individual wishes to, from very broad to very specific)
Communication and sharing knowledge (E.g. Practitioners sharing globally)
Remote consultations (E.g. Access to practitioners on the other side of the world)
Artificial intelligence (e.g. analysing data and pushing our understanding of health further)
Robotics (eg. imagine mini robots in charge of weeding and pest control, no need for pesticides/herbicides)
NB : At our next gathering, it would be helpful for the various focus groups to share and constructively see how they interact with each other.
Thank you for creating the space for these conversations to take place.
Don’t hesitate if you have any questions.
