Veronika Meca from the Faculty of Safety Engineering of the VSB- Technical University of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, with which our Occupational Health and Safety Program has an Erasmus+ Bilateral Agreement, visited our department and campus.During the meeting held at Çarşı Campus, Veronika Meca made a presentation about the department and after visiting our OHS Laboratory, she stated that they would like to strengthen the bond between the two universities by increasing student exchange in the coming years. Representing our department, Faculty of Health Sciences Deputy Dean Nuri BİNGÖL, PhD and Sertaç TEMUR accompanied them.

Üsküdar University Artificial Intelligence Engineering Master's Program Head of Department Dr. Lecturer. Prof. Dr. Nuri Bingöl made statements on how rapidly developing artificial intelligence technologies should be controlled nationally and globally, what kind of limits should be imposed and what obstacles are in front of all these.It is time to use knowledge in a way that maximizes the benefits of artificial intelligenceStating that in addition to the many positive potentials of artificial intelligence, it is important not to ignore the potential for threat or danger, Dr. Lecturer. Prof. Dr. Nuri Bingöl said, "Humanity is experienced in this issue and should quickly translate this experience into practice. We have learned a lot from the positive or negative consequences of previous revolutionary technological developments. It is high time to use this knowledge to maximize the benefits of artificial intelligence."There is disagreement on how to exercise control over artificial intelligenceStating that many authorities who shape today's societies with their thoughts and even people who play an important role in the development of artificial intelligence share similar thoughts, Bingöl said, "The extraordinary development of artificial intelligence in the last few years and the results in the fields where it is used show that the development of artificial intelligence technology should be subject to some regulations and controls. The differences of opinion are not on this issue, but on 'how this supervision will be implemented'."Measures vary depending on which phase will be inspectedReferring to the reasons why the discussions and disagreements are concentrated on how the audit will be implemented, Bingöl explained these reasons as follows: "Artificial intelligence technologies are a formidable power, and there are problems with concentrating this power in the hands of only one institution. These technologies are inherently a two-stage product. The first is to develop the capacity of artificial intelligence and the second is to use it for a specific purpose. Which of these two phases should be controlled or limited? Which phase poses more potential threats or dangers? Naturally, the measures that can be taken vary according to the answer to this question. The question of 'how to implement it' takes on a different meaning."Excessive control and limitation of technology leads to diminishing benefitsDrawing attention to the level of control and limitation of artificial intelligence, Bingöl said, "It should not be forgotten that excessive control and limitation on technology leads to a decrease in the benefits arising from the development of that technology. However, there are great existential problems in front of humanity and artificial intelligence technologies have great potential in these issues." Bingöl quoted Andrew Ng, a prominent figure in the field of artificial intelligence, as saying, "When I think about the existential risks for a large part of humanity: The next pandemic, climate change and the resulting mass depopulation, another asteroid threat... Artificial intelligence will be an important part of our solutions. So if we want humanity to survive and thrive for the next thousand years, let's make AI work faster, not slower.

Event informationStart date : 16 June 2022, 09:00:00End date : 19 June 2022, 17:00:00Important DatesConference Date: June 16-19, 2022Abstract Submission Deadline: May 10, 2022Early Registration: May 18, 2022Üsküdar Üniversitesi, İSTANBULhttp://ihmc2022.ussam.org/en/Dear 7th International Health Sciences and Management Conference Participants, In the last two years, there has been a radical shift in health-related paradigms. The fact that infectious diseases, which were thought to be left behind for developed countries, are again on the agenda of the world for a long time, shows that humanity will continue to pass such tests from time to time.First of all, the COVID-19 pandemic has tested health systems, reminding us of the need to be prepared when unusual health problems arise and the importance of crisis management skills. In addition, we have observed closely in this process that the fight against epidemics, in particular, and all kinds of diseases, in general, is not only considered in the axis of the patient and the health care system but also has economic, political, and social aspects.It has always been technology that steers the periods of change and transformation. With COVID-19, the importance of health technologies has increased, digitalization has come to the fore in health services, as in all areas, and everything has begun to be redesigned according to information and communication technologies. On the other hand, it is seen that the developments in medical technology and diseases have different effects on each person, and the solution is moving to the point of producing personalized solutions rather than categorical evaluations.For these reasons, we have determined the main theme of this year's congress as "Digital Health & Personalized Medicine". To create scientific knowledge on the subject, the theme of "Digital Health & Personalized Medicine" will be discussed in detail in the panels and sessions of our congress by experts from Turkey and abroad. We expect your scientific studies that are directly or indirectly related to the "Digital Health & Personalized Medicine" theme.The congress aims to lay the groundwork for the international sharing of scientific knowledge, skills, and experiences ranging from local to global in the fields of health management and health institution management. At the same time, the congress aims to bring together scientists, especially young researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and managers from different countries, to provide global information sharing, emphasize the importance of health management, and contribute to the professional professionalization of health management globally.Our congress will be held in Istanbul, hosted by Üsküdar University, between June 16-19, 2022. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to participate in the congress both physically and digitally. In addition to the main theme of the congress, "Digital Health & Personalized Medicine" we look forward to your studies in health sciences and management.Your participation in our congress will honor us. With our best wishes.Best wishes…
