Kazu Gomi on Bio Digital Twins and the Future of Patient Care

In his latest contribution to Forbes, NTT Research President and CEO, Kazuhiro Gomi, discusses bio digital twins, one of the MEI Lab’s two main areas of focus. While the idea appears futuristic, Gomi notes that the related concept of digital twins is already well developed, and its component technologies are widely deployed. The technologies that would enable a shift into the biological realm are also in play. Direct research now involves aggregate and patient-specific data, particular physiological systems and data processing engines. As this field continues to evolve, medical applications are likely to begin with critical care and then move into chronic care and wellness.
