P7: A New Paradigm for Health Care in the 21st Century

Friday, February 15, 3:30 – 5:00 PM 

Synopsis: A combination of rapid growth in patient generated health care data enabled by the Internet of Things, genomics, and sociomics will have significant implications on the way health care is delivered globally. Panelists in this session will introduce the P7 health care paradigm, which extends Leroy Hood’s P4 concept to include precise decision making, pervasive health care, and protection of patient data. They will discuss specific case studies that instantiate the state of the art research and practice of P7 health care. Topics to be discussed include diagnostic and treatment strategies. The attendees of this symposium will gain insights into some of the scientific and technological challenges that are being addressed in this new paradigm which can transform health care practice.

Socio-technical Cybersecurity: It’s All About People

Saturday, February 16, 2019, 08:00 – 09:30 AM

Synopsis: In this session, three aspects of cybersecurity that intersect with the social sciences will be discussed: trust and agency in cyberspace, difficulties aligning incentives in multi-stakeholder settings, and the need for evidence-based policy for cybercrime.

Sustainably Feeding Ten Billion People

Saturday, February 16, 2019, 3:30 PM – 05:00 PM

Synopsis: The worldwide food system faces a formidable challenge: to sustainably feed an estimated global population of ten billion people by 2050. To meet this challenge, food production, processing, and distribution must be re-envisioned and re-invented. The use and replenishment of natural resources, and the way agricultural systems interact with both the human and the natural world must also be re-examined. Doing so is critical to sustain the health of individuals, communities, and the environment.

Cybersecurity: Transcending Physics, Technology, and Society

Sunday, February 17, 2019, 3:30 PM – 05:00 PM

Synopsis: The science of cybersecurity is failing. In the last year alone, fundamental flaws in the basic building blocks of computation have rocked the foundation of security and privacy for society: elections and Cambridge Analytica, vulnerable pacemakers, computer chips found in billions of devices easily hacked, and more. It is necessary to consider the current gap in science to shift the conversation in productive ways to ensure security and privacy is built into the coming wave of Internet of Things devices. In this session, experts in computer security and privacy will explain the root causes of the flaws and the gaps in the science of cybersecurity.
