22 December 2011: ITFoM - The IT Future of Medicine

Published in the 'Procedia Computer Science' journal on the Proceedings of the 2nd European Future Technologies Conference and Exhibition 2011 (FET 11).


Abstract from the article:


Molecular medicine is undergoing a revolution, creating a data fog that may obscure understanding. The functioning human is analogous to a biological factory controlled by an incredibly complex Information and Communication (IC) network. It is proposed that 7 billion computational replicas be made of those 7 billion human IC networks to enable interrogation and manipulation, for understanding and personalized healthcare. This requires a revolutionary ICT that follows the organization of the biological information and communication flows, with implications for hardware, software and connectivity.
