Metaverse and AI Will Bring the Next Disruption in the Health Sector

Despite the fog that surrounds the metaverse, the report has pointed to it as a driver capable of improving people’s mental health and points to platforms such as Mindful Metaverse or DeepWell Therapeutics, which treat the symptoms of depression and anxiety. The virtual environment will become the next scenario for telemedicine.



From Artificial Intelligence to the metaverse and textile batteries. The next technological disruption that can change the industry is already taking shape and focuses on increasing sustainability and health while improving productivity, as reflected in the latest report presented by the World Economic Forum (WEF), in which he points out the ten emerging technologies that stand out for their disruption this 2023.

Despite the fog that surrounds the metaverse, the report has pointed to it as a driver capable of improving people’s mental health and points to platforms such as Mindful Metaverse or DeepWell Therapeutics, which treat the symptoms of depression and anxiety.

The virtual environment (metaverse) will become the next scenario for telemedicine

The new technologies based on AI  could become an ally of the health sector to anticipate extreme situations such as the one experienced in 2020. These systems would increase the efficiency of health systems at a national and global level to strengthen access to health care and that, as the report itself indicates, would imply improvements in the detection of diseases and the choice of treatments.  

Other advances noted by the WEF are design viruses and omic maps, linked to science and the study of the human body. Based on this new technology, it is possible to change the functions of bacteria, making them sensitive to a certain drug or attacking another bacterial species.

The first place on the list is for Artificial Intelligence, which has gained notoriety in the last year among the population. The WEF pointed out that generative artificial intelligence will serve as a tool to expand the limits of human effort, improve people’s creativity, and will challenge the way of thinking today.

However, the entity clarifies that the capacity and access to the benefits of these new technologies selected in the top 10  by the WEF will depend on the degree of development and infrastructure of each country.

The organization describes generative AI as a  technology that stands out for its versatility: it can be used in its own processes in industries as diverse as the pharmaceutical sector and furniture design. The entity points out that the main challenge facing AI now, and in the future, is to meet ethical standards that are approved by the competent regulatory authorities, that end the debate on the attribution of Copyright and be perceived by society as a tool and not a threat.

Another of the challenges of the advances posed by technology is to create net zero data centers. Currently, these spaces spend 1% of the activity produced globally, and the organization points out that the rate will not stop growing year after year with the increase in demand.

First, to address heat management issues, liquid cooling systems are being developed that use water or dielectric coolant to dissipate heat, while excess heat is being reused for applications including space heating. , water heating, and industrial processes. For example, the city of Stockholm is implementing projects to use waste heat from data centers to heat homes.

Second, AI is being used to analyze and optimize energy usage in real-time, maximizing efficiency without compromising performance. The report also notes that the technology infrastructure that underpins net-zero power data centers is becoming more modular and demand-driven, allowing data processing and storage to be distributed across multiple devices and even locations.
