The Future of Medicine, Could You Live to 150?

Happy Saturday Morning Post, everyone! With the dreary weather in the midwest this month, I think it’s time to look at something enlightening. Something that is sure to get you out of any weather-produced funk.

Yes, I’m back to Ted Talks with a video presented by Dr. Daniel Kraft, inventor and innovator. He is a Stanford- and Harvard-trained physician-scientist with over 20 years of experience in clinical practice, biomedical research and innovation. He is now chairing the FutureMed program at Singularity University.

In the video below (click here if video does not launch), he speaks on how rapidly developing technologies such as low cost genomic sequencing, artificial intelligence, telemedicine, robotics, 24/7 body wearable monitors, smart pills, stem cells, synthetic biology, gene therapy, mobile phone Apps and crowd sourced health data affect the future of healthcare and medicine. Yes, all that. He even talks about how social media will have a role with these new technologies. This is definitely worth a look if you: work in medicine, work in a lab, would ever be a patient, or would like to never be a patient… you get the idea, there is something here for everyone.

Daniel Kraft: Medicine’s Future? There’s An App For That

What do you think? Is it too scary? Too promising? How will it lower health costs? Or won’t it? Time will tell, but at least, as Einstein would say: it’s not doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. These technologies will change things.

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Scrapebox,
      Do you suppose you could respond back to me so I whitelist your name on the comment section fo my blog? I’ve been getting a bit of spam and I want to be sure that I don’t delete you unless you are not a real person. 🙂
