Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He is the co-founder and CTO of Inrupt.com, a tech start-up which uses, promotes and helps develop the open source Solid platform. Solid aims to give people control and agency over their data, questioning many assumptions about how the web has to work. Solid technically is is new level of standard at the web layer, which adds things never put into the original spec, such as global single sign-on, universal access control, and a universal data API so that any app can store data in any storage place. Socially Solid is a movement away from much of the issues with the current WWW, and toward a world in which users are in control, and empowered by large amounts of data, private, shared, and public.
Dr. Paul B. Rothman is the dean of the medical faculty for the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) a research institution which has been at the forefront of the world’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Should be some enlightening discussion about the intersection of data and digital health. Please register and join if you can, and share freely with others. It’s a virtual event, so seating is almost virtually unlimited! 😉

The event was a great success and highly enlightening! Although the live version of the event has passed, the content lives on and is still accessible. If you’re interested in the intersection of personal health and data, please check out the interviews with Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Dr. Paul Rothman.
