Professor Michael Georgeff is the Director of the e-Health research unit at Monash University. He has over 25 years experience in software innovation and bringing these technologies to market. In the 1980s, Georgeff was Program Director in the Artificial Intelligence Center at SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute). He was also a member of Stanford University’s Center for the Study of Language and Information, a select group of researchers exploring the frontiers of human and machine cognition. During this period, he and his team created one of the first implementations of an intelligent software agent, using it to help control NASAÂ´s space shuttle during space missions.
I chatted with him recently about the state of e-Health in Australia and about some of the challenges and opportunities in the area. For the last few years he has been working on “Health Web”, an online resource to bring healthcare providers, agencies and patients into one giant online research clinic.
