Striking a Balance in the Age of Digital Distraction

Conference
Digital Wellness

Date & Time

Monday, 25 Feb

16:00 – 16:45

Location

Hall 4 – Auditorium 3

Description

Digital Wellness is a relatively new concept that examines our relationship with the online world and its effect on our physical and mental wellbeing. A world where devices and connectivity are almost ubiquitous allows us access to a host of services and information at a level that was previously imaginable. But it also has significant implications for our mental and physical health. Apps are designed to grab and keep our attention, causing us to check our phones up to 200 times per day (TechMark) and a recent survey found that 46% of us “could not live without our smartphones.” (Pew Research Center) Children and teenagers are even more susceptible to device addiction, as well as the potentially harmful impacts of social media. This begs the question, where does the responsibility for our increased usage lie? Some device manufacturers and social media platforms have recently taken steps to curb our usage, introducing features like screen-time monitoring and the introduction of “holiday mode.” But does this go far enough and are they really addressing the issue? Have we lost sight of connecting with people in a meaningful way? How can we strike a balance in our ever-on, digital world?

Date & Time

Tuesday, 26 Feb

15:30 – 16:30

Location

Hall 4 – Auditorium 3

Description

Having information for your own use is good, but being able to derive value from sharing data beyond the company, as well as the as-yet unexplored opportunities for data monetization, is even better. The outcomes of data sharing in the healthcare sector offer an impressive early example of how revolutionary this can be and there are exciting initiatives under way to help industries generally to follow suit. There are huge hurdles to overcome in governance, security, and commercial models but these are being addressed quickly. In this discussion we hear from the global pioneers who are changing the conversation about the value of industrial data.

Privacy in the Era of Intelligent Machines: Designing AI solutions that protect people’s privacy and dataPrivacy

GSMA Seminars

Date & Time

Wednesday, 27 Feb

09:00 – 10:30

Location

South Entrance CC 1.5

Description

Artificial Intelligence (AI) promises to revolutionise our daily lives: from AI-powered virtual assistants that help us to navigate the internet, to AI-powered machines that serve our consumer, health or other needs. AI will also drive more efficient industrial processes, delivering smarter networks and better products and services at reduced costs. Organisations seeking to harness the power of AI must first consider the ethical implications of this new capability. In particular, the ability of algorithms to learn at a speed which far surpasses human capacity could have detrimental consequences for our privacy, for example by re-identifying individuals from previously anonymous datasets or by developing ever more accurate profiles of our preferences and behaviours. Conversely, AI could be leveraged to enhance our privacy by providing organisations with the means to understand potential risks of harm to individuals or by helping individuals to assert their own preferences and permissions on their digital interactions with people and businesses. So how can organisations get the best out of AI without introducing new privacy risks? This session will bring together mobile industry leaders, innovators, researchers and policymakers to share experiences and discuss best practice for designing privacy into AI-powered solutions. Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Register here before 9:00 on Tuesday 26 February to gain priority access to this session. Priority lane access closes 10 minutes before the scheduled start time.

Unlocking the Value of Data in Healthcare

Conference
Digital Wellness

Date & Time

Wednesday, 27 Feb

13:30 – 14:30

Location

Hall 4 – Auditorium 4

Description

Wearables manufacturers, tech companies and healthcare providers all have the ability to collect and analyse more personal data than ever before – this can be an incredibly powerful tool, bringing with it new opportunities through the use of advanced analytics and insights, but also creating a need for digital governance. Medical data sharing, or the lack of it, has been described as “one of the most broken things about health care” but tech companies could hold the power to fix this, through the development of open standards. As more technology is used personal data security becomes one of the biggest challenges – who owns our data and is it safe?

Immersive Healthcare: A Virtual Revolution?

Conference
Digital Wellness

Date & Time

Wednesday, 27 Feb

16:00 – 17:00

Location

Hall 4 – Auditorium 4

Description

The rising cost of care, a lack doctors and other skilled workers and increases in aging populations are making traditional healthcare models increasingly unsustainable. Immersive and virtual services have the potential to deliver specialised care to those most in need and also offer access to those in rural areas. Accenture estimates an economic value of approximately $10 billion annually to the U.S. health system alone through the use of virtual healthcare tools. There are a host of companies utilising the latest technologies and tools such as avatar therapy for mental health conditions, and utilising VR to support those with anxiety and PTSD. The widespread introduction of 5G will surely serve to increase the spread of immersive and virtual healthcare services.

Battle of the Health Apps

Conference
Digital Wellness

Date & Time

Thursday, 28 Feb

12:30 – 13:30

Location

Hall 4 – Auditorium 5

Description

There has been an explosion in health and wellness apps, as well as investment into the digital health space. Global digital health VC funding reached a record $8 Billion in the first nine months of 2018 (Mercom Capital) and in the first quarter of 2018, the top 10 grossing self-care apps in the U.S. earned $27 million in combined iOS and Android revenue worldwide (Sensor Tower). A large chunk of this market has been cornered by mindfulness and meditation apps – but there is certainly potential for other newcomers to get in on the action. With such a plethora of health apps available, this demo session will provide a stage for some of the most exciting and potentially disruptive apps to battle it out and pitch their concept to our panel of judges and get live feedback. This is one not to be missed!
