Designing Health: Future hospitals are hospitable
What will future health look like if hospitals are obsolete and the doctor is a robot? In the future, boundaries between individual and society and between sick and healthy will be fluid while new perceptions of health and illness emerge. How might we design a new human-centered and empathetic health care system? In the intersection between design thinking and futurology we outline a new paradigm and ask: What new markets and solutions emerge and what do future health technologies look like?

Rebuild, rethink, design-think your city
How can big data, loT and arrays of sensors live up to the promise of creating better, more livable and connected cities? This panel will debate and illustrate how to view the city as an opportunity to design from A to Z and looks at future cities in the digital era. What if the vision of the future began with people instead of tech? Essentially urban development should be driven as much by a profound understanding of how people move through the city and live in it, as it is by new technology.
