Description

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Do you know the whole picture of your health? Do you think you doctor does? Probably not. Leo Seļāvo looks into how technology could connect the dots and pixels of the information we have and contribute to digital healthcare, while also dealing with an important aspect to it — our privacy. Leo Seļāvo is a professor at the University of Latvia, a senior researcher and the head of the Cyber Physical Systems laboratory at the Institute of Electronics and Computer Science, Latvia. Leo holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Pittsburgh and his interests are in wireless sensor networks and systems that observe, compute, communicate, and make a positive impact to the real world at technical, economical, ecological and society levels. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
