ESI symposium 2019


Intelligence and Computation

Edward A. Lee, Professor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, EECS Department, University of California, Berkeley

"Fundamentally, the digital and algorithmic nature of software is a limitation not shared by the hardware of human brains and bodies, and it is quite possible that digital technology will evolve more in complementary rather than competitive ways."


Digitalization and AI in support of Value Based Care

Henk van Houten, CTO and Head of Research for Royal Philips

"Healthcare costs are exploding, medical staff are overburdened, and patients live longer with (multiple) chronic conditions. These are just a few of the many challenges healthcare systems across the globe are facing. Philips has adopted the quadruple aim as its yardstick for innovations which seek to alleviate these challenges. This approach ensures that we measure our innovation in terms

Digitalization is a key enabler for solutions addressing the quadruple aim. Adoption of (hybrid) Cloud platforms and the Internet of Things is unlocking data at an unprecedented scale."
