What Data Can Teach Us About Our Health, Maneesh Juneja

Soundcloud iTunes

Digital Health Futurist

Maneesh Juneja wants to see a world where everyone has the information they need to make the best possible decisions about their health. He says new ways of thinking are needed to reach that goal. We are gathering more and more data from the real world about our health and our lifestyles — whether that’s from internet searches or smart devices. But what’s the best way to use that to make our lives more healthy? And how can those benefits reach people in the developing world who may not yet be able to access good healthcare?

Maneesh Juneja believes that one way to help tackle mental health problems could be for people to talk to a machine. An algorithm or a robot doesn’t judge, but could one day help people to share and solve their problems. There’s a long way to go, but we’re already on the road.
