Tigran Petrosyan, is a native of Armenia who is currently pursuing a PhD physics, specializing in Biomedical Photonics at the University of Bern. His talk focuses on how technology and sophisticated algorithms may replace many jobs we currently see as quintessentially human, such as those in medical research and diagnostics, and what that means for us.

Orig­i­nally from Ar­me­nia, Tigran Petroysan is cur­rently pur­su­ing his doc­tor­ate in physics at the Uni­ver­sity of Bern. His re­search spe­cial­izes in op­toa­coustic imag­ing, a bio­med­ical imag­ing modal­ity find­ing its way to clin­ics and hos­pi­tals. His per­sonal and pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence in bio­med­ical imag­ing brought him to the idea that re­search and fur­ther de­vel­op­ment in the field may re­place what many doc­tors do.
