Title : The role of AI and digital twins in sustainable public health


This presentation explores the impact of consumer technologies, wearable devices, smartphone applications and artificial intelligence in the future of public health. It introduces the concept of a personal health navigator using these technologies and shows how it can help citizens to better manage their health whilst also contributing to the future sustainability of public health services.

IT will also examine the impact of all these developments on the roles and responsibilities of healthcare professionals.
