Rapid progress in new technologies has created an enormous range of diagnostic methods in medicine today. Targeted and efficient prevention and therapies have become possible. “Big data” in medicine can provide large benefits; however, the handling of sensitive data makes many people uncomfortable. Experts will present state-of-the-art technologies and the potential consequences for societies, along with controversial perspectives.
