Preventing diseases in the digital era

We are living a digital revolution, impacting every area of our lives. When searching the internet or using an ATM card, we create “digital crumbs”, records of our daily actions. And with access to new technologies and ways to analyze these millions and millions of microdata, we can learn more about human behavior and even anticipate the onset of epidemics.

On March 6th, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Gulbenkian Institute of Science, we will have two of the world’s leading specialists in the so-called “Digital Epidemiology”, explaining how we can use these digital crumbs to study diseases and how to prevent them. In simple language, Ciro Cattuto and Daniela Paolotti, of the ISI Foundation in Turin, will talk about their experience and answer to your questions. Moderated by Luis Rocha (IGC / Indiana University) and Joana Gonçalves de Sá (Nova SBE).

Introduction in Portuguese and mini-talks and questions / answers in English.
