THE APPLE WATCH COMETH
The Apple Watch is very personal—“personal” and “intimate” were words that Apple CEO Tim Cook and his colleagues used over and over again when presenting it to the public for the first time. That’s where the watch is likely to change things, because it does something computers aren’t generally supposed to: It lives on your body
PERSONAL DATA DELUGE
Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone.

My bloodwork was analysed looking at 16 different biomarkers. The results data was then uploaded to InsideTracker where I was able to track each biomarker alongside the optimal level. Deficient in Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Iron and my Total Cholesterol level is too high
“ “Data is driving change in the healthcare industry. In the hands of those who know how to use it, data brings advances in personalized and predictive medicine, significant cost savings, and research that points to entirely new products and markets. TIM O’REILLY

THE HEALTH INFORMATION AGE
For a year, they have been teaching Watson oncology. The system has been fed 2 million pages of text from 42 medical journals and clinical trials relevant to oncology. In addition, Watson has consumed 18,000 historical cases including medical records, patient outcomes, and physician's notes. Using natural language processing, Watson is capable of reviewing 1.5 million patient records in seconds. It does not stop there. Watson continues to learn as it’s fed new information. With every case and every new study that Watson learns, it modifies its recommendations.
IMPLANTS / NEUROPROSTHETICS
“ Brain implants are where laser eye surgery was several decades ago. They are not risk free and make sense only for a narrowly defined set of patients but they’re a sign of things to come. Gary Marcus, Professor of Psychology, NYU
“In the future we’ll all be wearing exoskeletons in common activities such as running.
Many human augmentation technologies will be invented in the coming decades that will enable humans to experience an enhanced physicality. Powered exoskeletons will increase running efficiency, speed and reduce musculoskeletal stress; aquatic exoskeletons will augment swimming endurance and speed; and spider suits will enable enhanced abilities to climb smooth vertical walls. Comparable to the connection between the invention of the bicycle and the sport of cycling, such new augmentation technologies will naturally result in new sports being practiced – power running, power swimming, power climbing…
