Arjun Panesar is the founding CEO of DDM Health (formerly Diabetes Digital Media).
It was during the first year of his undergraduate Master's degree in Computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Imperial College, London in 2002 that his grandfather, Anupam, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after suffering a quadruple heart bypass.
Not knowing how to manage his lifestyle in a way that suited his cultural and social expectations, Anupam turned to Arjun for guidance on what to eat. It was at this point Arjun founded Diabetes.co.uk, a global community for people with diabetes.
Fast forward to 2022, Arjun has two decades' experience in big data and AI and leads the development of DDM's evidence-based precision digital health solutions that harness the power of AI to provide precision medicine to patients, health services, and governments across the globe.
Arjun’s work has received international recognition featuring in the BBC, Forbes, New Scientist and The Times, been awarded an array of innovation, business, and technology awards.
Arjun is a best-selling author on the topics of healthcare and AI, authoring two editions of Machine Learning and AI in Healthcare, and contributing to Handbook of Global Health, a major reference work. He is currently working on his third book, Precision Health and Artificial Intelligence scheduled for publication at the end of 2022.
Arjun is an advisor to the Information School, University of Sheffield, Visiting Lecturer at University of Warwick, Alumni Fellow to the NHS Innovation Accelerator, and was recognised by Imperial College as an Emerging Alumni Leader in 2020 for his contribution and impact to society.
