Foresights: Thriving in our brave new digital world

As we navigate through our 21st-century digital world, new technologies continue to significantly impact how we initiate interactions and communicate with one another. How we learn, teach, work, travel, and even how we play and entertain are being dynamically reshaped. There are positive, negative and “just don’t know yet” responses to how our digital world influences our social interactions. Consider the future using both imagination and extrapolation to predict the daily details of 2035. How can we become active shapers of our digital futures so that we go beyond surviving to thriving?

Innovation, personalization, and collaboration: Investigating the challenges and opportunities in medicine

Medical technology is rapidly advancing from telemedicine to genome editing and beyond. Personalized medicine is shaping medical care and increasing the scope of treatable disease. Central to these changes is the use of nanoparticles and advanced pharmaceutical technology. Prosthetic technology has improved with utilization of 3D printing and neural interfacing. Robotic surgery has revolutionized capabilities, patient safety and treatment outcomes. We may soon see real-time diagnostics, holographic medical records and artificial intelligence utilized in routine delivery of healthcare. What are the implications of the latest innovations in medical technology and their use in the diagnosis and treatment of human disease?
