Connected Health Conference (Boston, USA)

I moderated the panel “Bots for Socialization and Care Delivery: Exploring the Limits of Bot-Human Interaction” with Casey Bennett of CVS Health, Cory Kidd of Catalia Health, Phil Marshall of Conversa, and Ned Semonite of Ohmni Labs. I also served on the panel “The Future of Technology and the Human Element” with Kyra Bobinet of engagedIN, Pattie Maes of the MIT Media Lab, and Rosesmary Sheehan of Patners Healthcare Inc. Had a blast and learned a lot.
