The devices, software and other health tech headlines of CES 2020

In this article, author lists many connected devices presented at the last CES. Always between health and wellness, these products will easy everyday life (we hope!) but also highlight the problem of personal data.  CES is back again with scores of new consumer tech products in tow, and digital health is no exception. Players big and small to Las Vegas each year to unveil and promote devices, whether they be focused on health monitoring, restful sleeping, fitness,…

A billion medical images are exposed online, as doctors ignore warnings

As unbelievable as it sounds, billions of picture from patient exams are “freely” available today on Internet. The problem is well known and fully documented since year but number of unsecured data files increase years after years. As healthcare digitization process every day, we can imagine how data security is important for the development of immersive technologies. The problem is well-documented. Greenbone found 24 million patient exams storing more than 720 million medical images in…

L’IA en santé au service de la personne et de la société ?

L’arrivée de l’intelligence artificielle en santé entraine un grand nombre de débats dont ceux ayant trait à l’éthique. Or les professionnels du numérique commencent à peine à se poser cette question de manière générale. La collision avec le domaine de la santé, où depuis longtemps l’éthique est au cœur des discussions, est potentiellement explosive. Dans cette tribune, les auteurs reviennent sur des points cruciaux comme la notion de boite noir, la responsabilité de la décision…

ITU and WHO launch new initiative to leverage power of Artificial Intelligence for health

This new initiative from United Nations is very interesting because IA is a fundamental part of the uses of immersives technologies in healthcare. Indeed, extracting useful information from pictures to make a diagnostic means that you have to completely understand the process of extraction. Or when you use IA, links between algorithms and results are often obscur. The “ITU Focus Group on AI for Health” wants to establish standard framework to create and validate IA algorithms.…

Elisabeth Ducottet (Thuasne): «La réalité augmentée promet d’être une révolution dans le monde de la santé»

Thuasne utilise la réalité augmentée pour faciliter le développement de ses orthèses et aider le patient à mieux choisir son matériel. Ce n’est qu’un début, l’entreprise va élargir l’usage de cette technologie et utiliser plus simplement les données des ses utilisateurs pour faire évoluer ses gammes de produits. Ces données nous permettent de modéliser le corps humain, de voir ses réactions dans le mouvement. C’est un progrès fantastique, notamment pour les articulations complexes que sont…

From Virtual Reality to Immersive Analytics in Bioinformatics Burlingame, California, 30 Jan 2018

Molecular biology produces huge amounts of data in the post-genomic era. This includes data describing metabolic mechanisms and pathways, structural genomic organization, patterns of regulatory regions; proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics. On the one hand, analysis of this data uses essentially the methods and concepts of computer science; on the other hand, the range of biological tasks solved by researchers determines the range and scope of the data. Integrative Bioinformatics is a new area of research…
