Lothar Thiele

Professor of Computer Engineering, ETH ZURICH

“As a leading university advancing science, technology, and engineering, ETH Zurich shapes health technology and takes on the ethical debates surrounding the Digital Age.”

While the next generation of “digital natives” might regard new health technologies and data transparency as the “seamless backbone of society,” the current generation faces a data tsunami. Information is flooding in at an unprecedented rate and the receding wave presents a potentially devastating risk to personal safety and privacy. At the same time, advances in health research and technology serve society Improving quality of life on multiple levels.

At the WORLDWEBFORUM, ETH Zurich uses its digital platform to showcase the latest health technologies and to foster discussion and learning surrounding the important ethical principles of digitalizing health related data. It highlights Both the complexity and potential connections, while providing on interactive playground to explore questions, ideas, and solutions.

Workshop ''Re-inventing Digital Health for the 21st Century''

Health systems worldwide face fundamental challenges: rising costs, conflicting interests, societal trade-offs.

But many thought leaders and industry participants see a tremendous opportunity around the adoption of new technologies to achieve significant benefits for our health systems, both in terms of efficiency as well as the quality of the outcomes.

In this context, we want to create a new, innovative platform for this discussion in Switzerland, that combines the leading thinkers from Switzerland with the true Digital Health shapers and thinkers from around the world.

The findings of this standing group of members of academia, pharma and biotech, mayors and providers, politicians and regulators will regularly be published in a white paper

The «Re-Inventing Digital Health for the 21st Century in Switzerland» workshop will become an exclusive part of the Track Digital Health, chaired by ETH Zurich.

The event takes place for the first time at the 7th annual meeting of WORLDWEBFORUM in Zurich, January 17-18, 2019, by invitation only.
