Keynotes Speaker

Mihaela van der Schaar

The future of healthcare in the metaverse


ABSTRACT: In this keynote, I will describe my vision of how the Metaverse will transform healthcare.

By applying machine learning and AI on data from a variety of devices and sensors, we can better monitor and treat patients at home, in hospitals and in the clinic, and enable patients and clinicians to interact in completely new ways in the Metaverse on the basis of the derived analytics.The Metaverse will also allow AI-enabled avatars to join multidisciplinary clinical teams, creating more efficient and more advanced health delivery systems.

Finally, I will outline a vision of how national and international healthcare systems can interact and be transformed and how clinical trials can be conducted and augmented in the Metaverse.
