MIXII BioMed 2021 (Tel Aviv, ISR)

Within the arena of health care, quality of life is viewed as multidimensional, encompassing emotional, physical, material, and social well-being. Human lifespan could soon pass 100 years thanks to medical science and technology. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, genomics and other technologies may lead to an extended life. In today’s modern society, there exists a “religious” fervor of prolonging life at a potential cost of reduced quality of life. In the upcoming MIXiii-BIOMED 2021 conference we will focus our attention to this very important issue of “Quality of our extended lives – Pros and Cons”. Our previous successful conferences hosted over 6,000 industry executives, scientists, doctors, engineers and investors, including approximately 1,000 international participants from over 45 countries and more than 4,500 one-on-one meetings.
