Jean-Marie Aerts - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
In our field, we are mainly focusing on developing technology for measuring information on individual human beings and what we see is that there is a quite strong evolution or, should we say, revolution in hardware development: sensors becoming smaller, more performant, cheaper, the same with the hardware: we have ubiquitous computing, computing power is everywhere and what we strongly believe and also see already in research is that, by combining these technologies, by integrating this sensing, this computing, together with mathematical modeling techniques, it enables us to monitor in real time the status and also changes in the status of individuals, or even, in a next step, that we are able to control the individual or some processes inside the individual. So we believe that is the future, actually, to go to.
