12. Please describe your specific interest in #LINO23 and its participants:

Medicine is one area of our lives that will experience significant changes on a scale not seen before in human history. These changes will be determined by: the implementation of artificial intelligence into medical practice, telemedicine as a form of first contact between the patient and the medical establishment, and new disease groups. Prominent scientists will play a significant role in both the implementation into practice and the transmission of the ideas of change to the younger generation. The opportunity to directly observe the forum for future changes, to participate in its backstage, provides a unique opportunity for a journalist to provide an honest narrative of what is coming.

Medycyna jest jednym z obszarów naszego życia, która doznaje bardzo dużych przemian na skalę nie spotykaną dotychczas w historii. Zmiany te będą wyznaczać: wdrożenie sztucznej inteligencji do praktyki lekarskiej, telemedycyna jako forma pierwszego kontaktu pacjenta z placówką medyczną oraz nowe grupy chorób. Wybitni naukowcy będą odgrywali znaczącą role zarówno we wdrażaniu do praktyki jak i przekazywaniu idei zmian młodemu pokoleniu. Możliwość bezpośredniej obserwacji forum przyszłych przemian, uczestniczenie w jego kuluarach stwarza dla dziennikarza niepowtarzalną szansę przekazania rzetelnej narracji tego co nadchodzi.
