We are bringing together the brightest minds to discuss the future of health and sports in a unique setting. Friendships will emerge and professional relationships will be formed.
Big Data, AI and Wearables are transforming health, lifestyle and sports. Through smart watches and fitness wristbands, we are now able to gather data at a granular level, become more informed as a patient and can sometimes provide our GP with a better diagnosis than he can do in the practice room in 30 minutes. These trends are complemented by movements such as functional medicine, nutritional genetics and biohacking.
Whether consumers are using EEG headbands or wearing a sports suit with sensors to measure muscle tension: the technology is already here. We are on our way to optimize our diet, our fitness routines, sleep and our lives as well as our health.
According to ‘Statista’, the digital health market will grow from just under 100 billion in 2016 to over 200 billion dollars by 2020.
