Efforts toward new social systems premised on digital technology are gaining momentum. The new DX being worked on in this way is characterized by the development of new digital-based systems for people and society, rather than the replacement of analog-era systems with digital ones, such as applications based on stable Internet using 5G and optical fiber, applications that can freely use video and voice, and AI-based services made possible by analyzing various digital data.

In the medical field as well, new and collaborative efforts are being promoted in various relationships between hospitals and patients, medicine and health, and individuals and their lives, including the digitization of electronic medical records, etc., which have been promoted so far. This seminar, an initiative of the Keio Cyber Civilization Research Center, will provide an overview of these developments through lectures by experts from a variety of perspectives and a panel discussion among experts to look ahead to the future of DX in the medical and health fields.

The third seminar will share knowledge in the medical and health fields premised on AI and digital data in the rapid progress in DX, and explore future roles and missions in various fields of industry, government, and academia in the challenges of standardization and the development of related systems and rules that should be newly addressed.
