Virtual Physicians: The Future of Healthcare

Saturday, March 12
12:30PM - 1:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 203-204
110 E 2nd St


In the not-too-distant healthcare future, "virtually cloned" physicians will operate in AI-enabled, mixed reality clinics that offer 24/7 access and consultation. Aided by IoT-enabled wearable devices, implantable and ingestible sensors, virtually cloned physicians will collect on-demand diagnostic data to fuel proactive, seamless patient care extending beyond the walls of clinics, labs and hospitals. This will enable doctors to extend their expertise anywhere, to anyone, at any time, eliminating global healthcare access barriers and quality of care. Join us to explore the revolutionary role virtual humans may play in your healthcare future! Part of the IEEE Tech for Humanity Series.
