  • Apps, Wearables and Big Data: How technology is forever changing how we live and care for our lives   |   Medzinárodný kongres ITAPA 2016: Make IT Easy
    Building on the previous presentations that took us into the healthcare facilities and research labs and shared with us some of the great advancements technology has brought to their line of work, we are now going to turn our attention to the technologies we use in our every day lives that are bringing e-health opportunities.

    Big Data is providing us with previously unimaginable opportunities to understand the human body and human behavior in real time. Doctors will soon be able to help us before we can feel the symptoms, our every heart beat can be analyzed and we will get to a time when our watch knows ahead of time we will become sick, increasing our chances for early intervention. Sounds enticing, but are there any hidden dangers of this future?
