In his 2015 book, Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari describes a future where individuals increasingly cede personal autonomy to non-conscious algorithms.  The implications of such a future for health and healthcare services are profound and manifold.  Come and watch our diverse panel as they consider how health and care systems should respond should this scenario evolve.  Drive, facilitate, enable or resist?
