●Disease prevention

Diseases develop due to the interrelationship between environmental factors such as an individual’s lifestyle (diet, exercise, etc.) and genetic factors (constitution, etc.). By analyzing integrated medical big data of different lifestyles and genetic information, we can identify risk factors and contribute to preventive medicine for people in the future. Toshiba will utilize the power of data analysis, AI and other digital technologies to improve the quality of life.

<Genomic Analysis Tool for Japanese Individuals [Japonica Array]>

Toshiba, together with the Tohoku University Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization, has been promoting the social implementation of the Japanese genome analysis tool "Japonica Array" designed by the organization.
By utilizing this genome analysis technology and analyzing a large amount of genome information as well as health checkup and receipt information, we aim to provide preventive and medical services tailored to each individual.

●Heavy-Ion Therapy System, patient-friendly cancer treatment

Heavy-ion therapy uses particles such as carbon ions to generate a high-energy beam that irradiates cancerous tissues—the system accelerates carbon-ion beam to up to 70% of the speed of light and delivers a concentrated dose of radiation to the targeted part. In addition to being fast and non-invasive, it ensures pinpoint and lethal irradiation to cancerous tissues efficiently, with minimum damage to surrounding healthy tissues, and with fewer fractions compared to other radiotherapies.

Quantum Key Distribution

Keeping data safe and secure is one of the greatest challenges posed by the rapid development of today's information technology. Securing the transmission and retrieval relies on encryption of information sent over public networks.
Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is used to distribute the secret digital keys important for protecting highly sensitive data critical to many industries. The essence of QKD security relies on encoding each bit of the key upon a single photon (particle of light) transmitted, for example through an ordinary optical fiber. As any attempt to read the photons alters their encoding, this allows the secrecy of each key to be tested and guaranteed. Unlike other existing security solutions, QKD is secure from all future advances in mathematics and computing, including the data processing power of a quantum computer.
