Malaysia in 100 Years: What Will Healthcare Look Like?

Artificial intelligence can have vast benefits in healthcare, including enabling remote analysis and diagnosis, processing complex information for rapid decision-making, and facilitating wider sharing of information. Will technology be the equaliser that enables the expertise of healthcare professionals to be applied in a more effective, empathetic and equitable manner? In other words, will AI and technology ensure a more sustainable future for all, where no one's healthcare needs are neglected?

In conjunction with Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day, Prof Tshilidzi Marwala joins us, drawing on his professional expertise as an artificial intelligence engineer to imagine a 21st-century Malaysia, how current developments in AI and technology should be shaped to set the path for the next century, and what Malaysia will need to build up, not only to utilise the technology, but to drive its development. Prof Marwala is currently the Rector of the United Nations University and Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations.
