Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments The promise of precision medicine: Is data the cure?

Precision medicine has the potential to transform the entire healthcare industry with personalised and bespoke treatments, but at what cost? Genya Dana from WEF’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution discusses the impact of precision medicine and the opportunity it represents to remove life threatening diseases from humanity, while Jo Pisani, Partner, Strategy&, weighs scientific breakthroughs with some of the critical challenges precision medicine faces around data, trust and security.

Krishna | 9 comments Nano tech is a very ..... it is mainly the application of several materials....

Here r some examples...

Might loose a bit of empathy along the way too mate...
Like the 78 year old grandad who was told by the robot "Y-ou wiilll so-oon d-ie"

That was my point? Patient care is underestimated as it is. If this is the way forward and a precursor to an AI backed Computer Interface that has no concept of emotion, and even if it did, the human in front of it won't identify it as having any sentient and emotional quality. Maybe in time humans will adjust, especially as tech progresses and it becomes harder to distinguish between human and machine.

But, in the meantime, it won't. Maybe they shouldn't implement certain things until they meet a sufficient standard, and where cost should definitely not be an issue in this matter.

James Morcan | 7753 comments I'm surprised how much AI has already been implemented, to be honest: especially at this early stage. In life and death situations like medicine and aviation you'd think society would proceed with extreme caution!

It's a barometer of how much margins plays a role and maybe how understaffed hospitals are. Or both. Still, with the latter, that's cold.

Also gives you an idea of how quickly displacement from this tech might happen in general, due to it being so easily embraced in sensitive situations where AI could operate at a cheaper cost, but would clearly benefit more from human intervention.

I don't think we're getting an accurate assessment from experts of the impact this tech will make in a lot of spheres; either it's too Armageddon/sci-fi-esque or too polyannaish.

Harvard Scientists Have Discovered The DNA Switch That Controls Whole-Body Regeneration https://www.disclose.tv/harvard-scien...

Humans have long envied animals that are able to regenerate parts of their bodies. Arms, legs, tails, even whole chunks of the organism. Yet despite all the technology and best efforts, humans don't have this ability. However, this could all change. Harvard University uncovered the DNA switch that controls genes for whole body regeneration. This means that one day, humans may be able to grow back lost limbs!
