Healthcare and life science sessions:


The roadmap to the data economy – thought-leaders panel. Featuring NHS X.
Speaker: Tim Ellis, Head of Frontline Digitisation, NHS-X

Our Executives and Thought Leaders panel discussed how enterprises foresee the advent and growth of the data economy, the main challenges, and opportunities, as well as how they expect to generate new revenue streams by federating ecosystems data

From the healthcare sector, we were delighted to feature NHS X. Tim Ellis from the Department of Health and Social Care NHSX talked about the UK Government’s ‘New Hospital Programme’ and the digital hospital blueprint, developed working with Atos. This programme sets out a Digital Hospital of the Future vision and provides the tools for delivering digitally advanced hospitals across England.



Quantum Computing at Bayer
Speaker: Ulf Hengstmann, Digital Lead at Bayer

In this session, Ulf provided a holistic insight into Quantum computing covering topics such as the challenges, business impact and computational methods. Ulf also delved into our joint PoC’s including Bayer, Aachen University & Atos. The PoC’s showcase the fantastic work made possible through use of Quantum simulation.

Be prepared: quantum computing is coming to your business!
Speaker: Professor Vicente Moret-Bonillo from University of La Coruña & Senior Member, IEEE (Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers)

Significant progress is being made by enterprises to anticipate the business breakthroughs of quantum computing. In this session, a range of thought leaders and experts discussed how the time for quantum computing is now.

From a Healthcare & Life Sciences standpoint, Professor Moret-Bonillo shared an innovative way to model clinical knowledge in oncology. Taking one of the pilot projects of the NEASQC research, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme as an example, he illustrated the advantages of using quantum computing as a rule-based system to support medical decisions in the diagnosis of breast cancer. During Professor Bonillo’ss talk, he followed the structure of the standard healthcare pathway for diagnosing invasive ductal carcinoma: screening, hypothesis, diagnosis, staging, therapy and evolution and explained how quantum can help in a very intuitive way.


Sarah’s story – a patient centred approach to healthcare & life sciences

In this session, we followed a patient care journey through to the point of discharge. We focused on the digital tools & technologies that are transforming the way care is delivered, not just in hospitals but across the whole patient journey, before breaking into a dynamic panel discussion made up of Atos experts.
