Introducing the Augmented Human
Technological innovation is accelerating the integration of robotics and artificial intelligence as extensions of our body, mind and behaviour in the quest to live longer, healthier and happier lives. Wearables, implants, haptic tech development and brain-controlled interfaces are just some of the technologies that are changing the face of mhealth and insurance. In this session, we map the future human, showcased by a cross section of emerging and incumbent companies working at the absolute edge of what we recognise as possible. Meet the innovators who are bring cyborgism into the realm of reality. Get ready to be inspired and have your perception of what is an achievable future for mhealth completely challenged as we introduce to you; the Augmented Human.
Ministerial Programme: ‘Accelerating Digital Health through the Power of Collaboration’
Mobile is accelerating the reach of healthcare to benefit millions in developing and developed regions. According to Broadband Commission for Healthcare, there are now over 165,000 mobile applications for health services, transforming the lives of people in need and promoting the wellbeing of mothers and families in developing countries. Stronger partnerships between government leaders, mobile and healthcare industries will increase the quality and reach of these services, significantly impacting millions of women and children who currently lack access to essential healthcare and nutritional information. What actionable steps can ICT take to foster collaboration with the health industry, and how can stakeholder coordination be standardised to work across both the public and private sectors?

AI Everywhere: Future of Work
The positive impact of successive industrial revolutions on employment was quantified for the first time in a ground breaking study published by Deloitte in 2015 based on 144 years of data from England and Wales. AI is set to become the next disruptive technology driving the greatest amount of transformation in the fourth industrial revolution. What does this mean for business and employees - will AI supplement or replace the future employee? What will human and AI collaboration look like? What new opportunities will AI enable for job creation? Are human interests aligned or at odds with the applications enabled by AI? This session is meant to highlight the opportunities of working with machines for businesses and employees, as well as what a change to the workforce could look like.
