When thought leaders lay out a vision of revolutionizing health care in the coming years, it’s usually a fusion of medicine and ground-breaking technology that calls to mind sophisticated AI robots performing noninvasive surgery with lasers to cure cancer in a matter of minutes.

Chances are that, sooner or later, that vision of the future of health care will be realized. But right now, in many more subtle and user-friendly ways, personalized medicine is already with us and changing the lives of ordinary people.

The health care system is facing major challenges to reduce spiraling costs while a demographic shift to an aging population increases the need for medical treatment. In the recent 10 year period, health care spending in the developed world has increased by approximately 70%, outpacing a GDP growth of around 40%. Non-infectious chronic diseases influenced by lifestyle factors such as diet and lack of physical activity are on the rise. Obesity is considered a global epidemic by WHO and linked to the top causes of mortality: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and certain types of cancers.

Artificial intelligence - the word may cause uncertainty for many people. What exactly will happen in the next few years, where and how? It seems certain: AI will change professional and private life.

The fourth R&D Conference has been taken place at the University of applied Science in Rapperswil. 28 contributions were made by 12 universities showing their latest digital innovation to the audience of industrial innovators.

In the past few years, artificial intelligence has advanced so quickly that it now seems hardly a month goes by without a newsworthy AI breakthrough. In areas as wide-ranging as speech translation, medical diagnosis, and gameplay, we have seen computers outperform humans in startling ways.

This has sparked a discussion about how AI will impact employment. Some fear that as AI improves, it will supplant workers, creating an ever-growing pool of unemployable humans who cannot compete economically with machines.

Increasing your healthspan (i.e. making 100 years old the new 60) will depend to a large degree on artificial intelligence. And healthcare AI systems are extremely data-hungry. Fortunately, a slew of new sensors and data acquisition methods—including over 122 million wearables shipped in 2018—are bursting onto the scene to meet the massive demand for medical data.

Switzerland is a country of railways. To ensure that it stays this way, SBB, BLS, Schweizerische Südostbahn AG (SOB), the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) and the Union of Public Transport (UPT) are joining forces and getting the entire railway sector involved. The smartRail 4.0 programme is a collaboration that aims to get Swiss railways ready for the digital future.

The role of the chief procurement officer as a strategic business partner has taken on a new shape in recent years as organizations aim to better focus on changing business landscapes and keeping up on tech developments.
