Health Optimisation Workshop in Singapore

Thanks to the great work of Harry Nguyen, I had the chance to participate in the Workshop “Health Optimisation: State-of-the-Art Technologies in Modern Psychiatry“. The event took place in Singapore at the Institute of Psychiatry and has gathered patients, doctors and researchers in both technology and medicine. The main lesson I learned during the lively discussions is that the main resource psychiatrists miss is the time to establish a deep dialogue with their patients. In turn, these feel that having more time at disposition with their doctors is a crucial need towards better chances of improvement. Overall, such an observation is a major encouragement towards the development of technologies capable to make the work of the psychiatrists more efficient, in line with the goals of my two main current projects, namely “School Attachment Monitor” and “Socially Competent Robots“.
