The Web of Health

The future of the open web

The Web of Health

Topics in health and medicine are increasingly searched for and tracked online, and relevant content is often delivered via digital means. This dynamic offers new opportunities to improve our health and the delivery of medicine; for example, by learning about aspect of people’s health status that are otherwise difficult to track, by facilitating rapid collection and dissemination of time-critical epidemiological data, and by allowing novel interventions to improve health.

This year, Social Good is an overarching theme of The Web Conference. We believe that strengthening the connection between the healthcare and the web research communities, with a dedicated one-day event called The Web of Health, will advance the use of the Web for Social Good in a unique manner.

The goal of the Web of Health event is to exchange research paradigms among participants from different fields, ranging from ML and AI, to general computer science, to medicine and public health. The event program will include keynotes and invited talks, a discussion panel, as well as a poster reception.
