Virtual Patient as Top 2020 technology
World Economic Forum released its Top Ten Emerging Technologies Report for 2020.
Data taken from high-res images of a human organ is fed into a complex mathematical model of the mechanisms that control that organ’s function. Then, computer algorithms resolve the resulting equations and generate a virtual organ that behaves like the real thing. Such virtual organs or body systems could replace people in the initial assessments of drugs and treatments, making the process quicker, safer and less expensive.
Another inroad into how digital replica can accelerate the solving of complex issues for a better world.
