Timo Leino, D. Med. Sci., Adj. Professor, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH), FI
I am an Occupational Health Physician. I have been in the field now for almost 30 years. During my career I have had an opportunity to work in international organizations such as the ILO and the WHO. I have hold several positions in the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. Currently I am Chief Medical Officer. Main part of my work goes to research and development in occupational health service. My research interest are the quality and effectiveness of occupational health service, good occupational health practice, work disability management, health promotion, and ICT-based solutions in occupational health practice and education.
I am married and have three children and four grandchildren. I like to read and watch good movies. I am also a keen tennis player.
On the course topic
Occupational health, safety and work ability are areas where we have a great opportunity to improve the quality and effectiveness of health and safety services with e-solutions. The new e-solutions will connect individuals, workplaces and health service providers in a net that will allow us to get the right people involved weather the question is personal health surveillance with apps and cloud services, better directed personalized services or artificial intelligence solutions for professionals to anticipate e.g. work disability or risks at work.
We are on the verge of a revolution in AI and social robotics. They will augment human skills and abilities and are becoming increasingly mainstream. The possibility to collect data from different sources into big data sets entails risks. That’s why discussion on ethics and personal data security is so important. We have the right to know who are using our data and for what purposes.
