From the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), digital twins, and robotics to help accelerate the development of new drugs and treatments, as well as accelerate clinical trials, through to breakthroughs in virtual home cancer care and nuclear medicine, and the democratisation of healthcare at home using tele-medicine and smart devices we covered a lot of ground in two minutes. And we could have gone on for two days …
