Objectives : In the twenty-first century, global public health approach will be completely restructured. Reliance on complex technologies like ICT, nanotechnology, robotics, immersive environments and artificial intelligence (AI), which were previously only used in fields like computer science and physics, will become the new trend. Using such advanced technologies would become megatrends of public health in new and exciting ways. Because making the 21st Century the Century of the Healthspan, we must develop innovative technologies to enhance and support the human interaction between a healthcare provider and patient or individual with specific needs (e.g., young children with cognitive impairment, elderly people, individuals with visual impairment, people with dementia, individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder), not in competition. In this seminar, human factors will be in the core of exchanges and presentation by providing a cross-cultural approach.
