The Future of Health Tech

Garage Society, Hong Kong

Anna joined a public panel discussion exploring the future of health tech. Drawing on the Futures Centre, she outlined three trends affecting the global outlook for human health:

  • the rise of non-communicable diseases
  • the impact of climate change on vector-borne diseases
  • resistance to antiobiotics
Then she outlined three ways in which health tech is responding to the challenges:
  • personalised analytics, beyond wearables
  • solutions tailored to an individual's microbiome
  • precise gene-editing with CRISPR.
