Doctor Google Will See You Now!

New Town Theatre
Freemasons' Hall

Your supermarket knows when you’re pregnant; Google knows what medical conditions you have; Facebook could help your doctor diagnose you. What if Google sent a record of your search terms to your doctor to notify them of likely health conditions? What if Facebook sent an alert to midwives when pregnant ladies posted photos of them drinking alcohol or smoking? Join Mhairi Aitken (The Farr Institute, University of Edinburgh) as she discusses how this information could be used and have your own say on what should remain science fiction and what should become reality.
