The Role of Digital Earth Technologies in Digital Medicine

  1. 1. Research and Innovation David Wortley FRSA – President European Chapter of ISDM The Role of Digital Earth Technologies in Digital Medicine
  2. 2. ISDE & ISDM
  3. 3. Presentation Hypothesis 1. The fundamental technologies used in Digital Earth Applications and the way they are applied are essentially the same as those used in Digital Medicine. 2. There is much to be gained by cross-disciplinary collaboration between scientists, academics and practitioners in both fields 3. Developing a joint technology roadmap in areas of common interest would benefit both disciplines
  4. 4. What is Digital Medicine? Digital Medicine defined as the science, practice and study of :- • The use of digital technologies for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of medical conditions • The use of digital technologies in the science and practice of medicine • The impact of digital technologies on the science, practice and study of medicine
  5. 5. Science, Practice and Study Key Digital Technologies Sensors 3D scanning Data Visualisation Big Data Analytics Complex internal and external ecosystems
  6. 6. Diagnosis, Treatment & Prevention Key Digital Technologies Sensors Internet of Things 3D scanning Data Visualisation Big Data Analytics Artificial Intelligence Robotics Communication Gamification Understanding and Managing Complex Interactions
  7. 7. Impact of Digital Technologies Understanding the Future of Digital Technologies through Roadmapping
  8. 8. The Roadmapping Process Individual Expert Interviews on present, expected and desired technologies What Digital Technologies and Applications in your sector Are currently most important Will be important in 2-5 years Would be ideal in the future
  9. 9. Technologies & Dependencies The most significant technologies in Digital Medicine and Digital Earth applications will be developed by other sectors for other purposes !!!!
  10. 10. Digital Technology Roadmap The Technology Matrix identifies critical technologies and relationships
  11. 11. Digital Technology Roadmap The Impact Matrix helps us understand the implications of Technology
  12. 12. Some Questions for you? What will be the impact on Digital Earth practitioners of developments in the following technologies • Artificial Intelligence • Virtual Reality • Internet of Things • 3D Printing • Mobile Devices (smartphones & tablets) • Cloud Computing
  13. 13. Some Questions for you? What will be the key technologies and dependencies for the following Digital Earth Applications • Smart Cities • Climate Change • Pollution • Resource management • Water & Agriculture
  14. 14. What have these in Common?
  15. 15. We have much to Learn from Each Other
  16. 16. The Key Message The most significant technologies in Digital Medicine and Digital Earth applications will be developed by other sectors for other purposes !!!!
  17. 17. ISDE & ISDM Who knows what the future will bring?
