Panel Sessions

1-Digital Driven Medical Transformation

Today people expect access to advanced healthcare and better health outcomes, public and private health resources. We have evidenced the rapid digitization of health services around the world, the demand for health data scientists, health technologists and technology-literate clinical staff.

This panel session brings together multidisciplinary research, clinical, industry, and government organizations to discuss research and development on combining individual and collective expertise with data, information and telecommunication technologies, which ultimately bring people improved health and wellbeing, improved value of care, reduced incidents, and reduced costs.

2-Smart Cities

The Smart Cities panel session brings together with a multidisciplinary group of experts in sustainable urban development. This session discusses topics to address and solve the urban development challenges, which brings people an equitable, sustainable and carbon free future. The discussion will foster achieving the sustainable development goals, facilitating the process of creating more livable and future proof cities and regions based on a wiser use of technology and global resources, empowering collaboration among cities, companies and society, by leveraging technologies such as smart energy, traffic management, smart buildings, digital and data technology.

3-Fintech and Cybersecurity

The Fintech and Cybersecurity panel session will focus on innovations and research trend that transform the finance industry, as we are seeing the strategic impacts of technological revolutions underway in the sector. Cybersecurity implications also make significant impact to the finance industry, given that regulators and securities industry professionals are largely working online while facing increased cyber threats.

The panelists will discuss new technological innovations that will impact both the fintech industry and cybersecurity, such as blockchain, anti-money laundering technologies, distributed ledger, open banking, digital assets, consumer data privacy, regulation technologies, and sustainable economy.
