  1. No Intelligence Without Motion
    [Former Astronaut Dan Barry MD PhD: How to Meet an Alien]

    I like this reversal of the alien intelligence metaphor: rather than figuring out how consciousness from another solar system works, build our own “alien” intelligence.

    Furthermore, rather than building new kinds of intelligence as an imposing of logical/intellectual properties, start from motion and perception – because that’s the origin of whatever is called intelligence.

  2. The Robos Will Evolve – So Should You

    Don’t expect robo-advisors of the future to look the same as they DO today.

    They will become simpler and smarter.



  3. Enter the ROBO-MDs

    Machines beat humans at chess. Machines can pilot airplanes to land at O’Hare or on Mars. There is now a machine that beats the best of us at Jeopardy.

    And, many predict that an Artificial Intelligent [AI] medical clinician is ten years away. And, no one will use a biological doctor in twenty five years. Then, the singularity.

    So, if you think ROBO-MDs won’t decimate the industry … think again!

  4. Dealing with Dr. Google
    [Why communication is key]

    How primary care physicians can win patients’ trust and resolve conflicts if online searches lead to requests for unnecessary tests or treatments.



  5. Google will never know you or care as much as I do

    Here are ten ways that Internet diagnosing interferes with your healthcare, by Tracey Delaplain MD.

  6. Amazon, Google race to get your DNA into the cloud Inc is in a race against Google Inc to store data on human DNA, seeking both bragging rights in helping scientists make new medical discoveries and market share in a business that may be worth $1 billion a year by 2018.

  7. Dealing with Dr. Google: Why communication is key

    When patients visit your office, they may already have a diagnosis in mind.

    Google says that one of every 20 searches on its search engine is conducted to obtain health-related information



  8. Enter the Singularity

    Computers are getting smarter with each new generation, and new research into natural language processing is bringing us closer to creating computers that can learn and communicate just like humans.



  9. “This Visit May Be Recorded”

    In their 1993 book, Reinventing Government, David Osborne and Ted Gaebler entitled a section “what gets measured gets done.”

    Unfortunately, when it comes to improving health care quality, safety, and costs, we often fail to observe the real work of care, and miss the chance to get it done better. To make a real difference, we need to begin measuring care when and where it happens – behind the curtain.

    Why We Must Directly Observe Patient Care



  10. Brain-to-Brain Communication Is Closer Than You Think

    When neuroscientists used a monkey’s thoughts to control computers, it was a huge breakthrough in mind-machine research. But, harnessing brain waves has become even more complex now that humans are the subjects.

    Recently, researchers used the thoughts of one human’s brain to control the physical actions of another.



  11. Nectome

    Nectome is a startup claiming that it can invent a technology that can immortalize the human brain by digitally uploading its content into the cloud. However, in order for your mind to live forever, you have to die first.

    Nectome is working on a futuristic method – aldehyde-stabilized cryopreservation (ASC) – which it claims will encode a person’s mind by preserving the brain’s neural connections, helping it to live on for hundreds of years.

    An investor asked us yesterday: “Why isn’t Google also working on a Neuroscience search engine like ContextualWeb?”

    Here is what we answered:

    “Google has no interest in developing technologies that will make search engines 1000 times cheaper. It will put in a high risk its most valuable asset which is the HUGE barriers to entry to the internet search market.”

    NOTE: ContextualWeb = Search engines that mimic the human brain.

    Any thoughts?
