New meeting of the Epsilon Project’s Scientific Committee

25 / 06 / 2018

The Epsilon Project Scientific Committee met again on 21 June to present the latest advances in different solutions and tools of this platform.

On 21 June, the Distrito Telefónica facilities in Madrid hosted a new Epsilon Project Scientific Committee meeting. The event was opened by Ignacio Aizpún, General Manager of ATAM. In his reflections, Aizpún stated that the human being cannot be understood from a mechanistic and Cartesian point of view, but as a complex system whose health will be impacted by many variables. This new vision requires a new paradigm of health care based on complexity, in which the technologies of massive data analysis are called upon to play a very important role in determining the state of health of people and their evolution.

This is the conceptual framework of the Epsilon Project which, by the latest technologies, is building a cognitive system that supports a combined ecosystem of services to promote the autonomy of the most vulnerable people.

Epsilon’s Scientific Committee comprises professionals from different and varied disciplines such as neuroscience, sociology, psychology, neuropsychiatry, biomedical engineering, biology, and physics. On this occasion, we have counted on the presence of professionals from prestigious entities such as the European Society of Telemedicine in Paris, the Farr Institute in London, the European Federation of Neurological Associations, COCEMFE, the Platform of Patients’ Organizations, the Spanish Parkinson’s Federation, the Practicum Foundation, and the Spanish Society of Neurology, among others. Professors from the University of Valladolid, the University of Seville, the UCAM of Murcia, and the Polytechnic University of Madrid represented the Spanish academic world. Of particular note was the participation of Dr. Jorge Trainini, surgeon, cardiologist, and author of the book “Medicine Based on Complexity”.

The meeting allowed us to present the latest advances in the different solutions and tools of this platform. Likewise, participants were able to share the vision and scope of initiatives aimed at the construction of new predictive and prescriptive models that represent a great evolution in the processes of diagnosis, prevention and determination at the levels of clinical and social intervention. The development of this project for the application of new technologies and the exploitation of massive data, the result of ATAM’s strong social commitment to people, is an imperative for an organization like ATAM, an entity with a clear humanist vocation.
