The “technological singularity” is forecast to occur by 2045. It is the point when non-biological (artificial or computer) intelligence becomes more intelligent than humans. From then onwards each generation of intelligent machines is assumed to re-design itself smarter and from then on humans and machines will interact as more than equals. This co-existence will produce substantial impacts across all areas of science and technology.
This Symposium is a continuation of previous similar events on the Regenerative Medicine organized by the same Institutions. However, it has extended its vision to also explore how intelligent machines might play out in the future of Medicine shifting the paradigm of medical philosophy and producing significant impacts on healthcare systems and patient-physician relationships. The technological progress will require the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic procedures as well as an increased number of specifically trained medical personnel worldwide. Finally, crucial for this is the digitalization of all medical and medical-related data that are generated by healthcare companies, hospitals, and other tiers of healthcare services.
In this context, a robust human-technology interaction will be fundamental not only to govern the evolution of the healthcare system, but also to allow humankind to prevail over the probable/possible intrusiveness of the machines (or the systems). It must always be remembered that patients are not digital, but analog, non-linear, feeling creatures who deserve respect and empathy.
This Symposium ambitiously aims to build a novel vision of the evolution of Medicine (specifically regenerative medicine) over the next few decades to supply decision makers as well as clinicians and researchers with guidance to better address their financial, cultural, clinical, and scientific investments.
