Informationen zum Autor Dr. Imran Rashid has a rare background as both an experienced IT-entrepreneur and a qualified family physician. In Rashid's final years of medical specialisation he began to question the way health care was being delivered and whether this could be improved with the integration of current technology trends. This interest lead him through several medtech startups and a general family practice, until he was headhunted to the position he holds today, as Head of Innovation in the largest chain of private hospitals in Denmark, Aleris-Hamlet Private Hospitals. Rashid has used his multidisciplinary knowledge to describe the interaction between the human brain and the smartphone and in doing so provided simple and qualified answers to some of the burning questions in modern society surrounding the impact of technology on our health. The author is also now an independent consultant under the business name Sunddigital.dkSoren Kenner is an expert in online marketing and a successful entrepreneur. In 1994, he founded Medialog, an integrated marketing agency which he later sold in what remains the largest agency deal in Denmark to this day. Soren then went on to head up McCann MRM EMEA, working with global clients such as Coca-Cola, L'oreal, Microsoft, Mastercard and Nestle. Soren has since founded and co-founded several companies, including online trading company Zecco.com (later TradeKing), online marketing agency Hello Group, Moodagent (audio-fingerprinting), Intivation (solar cells that power cell phones), Sparrow Quantum (single photon light-sources) and Concordium (foundational blockchain technology). Soren Kenner has also co-founded the "Liberal Alliance" political party in Denmark, and is an accomplished children's author.
