The Future of Medicine is Here. Now Let’s Start Using It.

The Future of Medicine is Here. Now Let’s Start Using It.

By Bryan Wright 36 Comments November 22, 2019


I think the cutting edge of medicine is really
not always high-tech, it’s being more focused on prevention and being proactive, understanding
your genetics. We’re at $1000 genome today, we’ll be at $100 or even a free genome in
the next decade. We know that sitting is the new smoking. We now have wearables that we
can stick in our clothes and our cars and our phones that are going to help give us
insight into our behaviors. We’re in the era of integrating exponential technologies together. I have in my pocket a version of the first
medical tricorder, part of a clinical trial from a company called Scanadu that started
at Singularity University. So as a consumer you can track your vital signs very readily.
They can help you do a better job of understanding health wellness, early disease detection and
triage. Technologies like having an AI doctor blended with sensors like this one has in
your bucket as a consumer will help you be more proactive, realizing that the best drug
is walking, doing 30 minutes of exercise a day; being reasonable about your diet. And
when we can use some of these tools as levers, understanding that behavior change is hard.
If you can look in the mirror in the morning and see future you and if your future you
is 100 pounds heavier, that might change your lever on behavior change. We can use I think Myer Briggs type things
of behavioral change to understand your care and your stick because just like precision
and personalized medicine, not everyone needs the same drug or the same app or the same
interface, we can start to use AI feedback loops integrated into your workday, integrated
into your wearables, into your apps to be more proactive. And if you think about how
the world has shifted, we’ve only had smartphones for seven years. The desktop of 2000 fits
on your smartphone and as of now it fits on my smart watch, which can kind of give you
a bit of a Google now. Not just leave work early because of traffic but you need to check
in the gym and get a few extra calories today if you’re going to stay on track to a certain
goal or to help manage diabetes or emphysema or heart disease. And we’re seeing a whole new realm of sort
of digital diagnostics. In my pocket I have an attachment that’s an otoscope that can
go in your phone. I have 3-D printed parts, here’s mini me. So we have new tools that
you can use at home, whether it’s 3-D printing a cast if you’ve had a fracture, and here’s
an example from 3-D Systems, scan your fracture; make one that fits you. All these things are
enabling cheaper, faster, more effective healthcare. It can democratize it around the planet. You
can have telemedicine talking to your doctor or nurse on Skype anywhere on the planet,
which has increasingly broadband accessibility. You can have diagnostics, labs on a chip.
It’s not just our quantified self-data, it’s the ability to do this on your smartphone
or to communicate that to a pathologist here in New York from rural Africa. All those things are shifting the power curve
to the empowered and engaged consumer and patient who can be a data donor, can be connected
to their own data to gain insights early; can have a visit with their clinician in more
seamless less expensive and less time-consuming ways. So we’re in an interesting era now,
whether it’s a tricorder or knowing your own genomics or having embedded sensors kind of
like your own personal check engine light can really shift healthcare diagnostics and
therapy in smart ways. So I think the most important thing anyone can do is start owning
their own health. Using tools and apps to quit smoking, get on a diet, tweet out their
weight from your scale, all those things can come together in powerful ways to be more
proactive and preventative as opposed to waiting for disease to happen. So be the COO of your
own health, don’t wait for your doctor to tell you what you need to do when you’re in
the ER or worse.

I clicked on this video due to the thumbnail of the beautiful young woman. What I didn't expect was this channel would get a man to speak for her.

I can't believe you'd give in to the chauvinists, 'Big-Think', a channel whose audience is renowned for down-voting amazing talks on Female inequality and the tribulations of menstruation purely because a woman is giving the talk. Sort it out.

Kind Regards,
Wyatt Nite

I agree with moving and exercise.  However it is also important to include a fresh plant based diet instead of all processed.

Maybe I'm pessimistic, but when I hear this kind of stuff, all I think about is how google and facebook will be able to make even more money off you.

The people who eat poorly and don't exercise are already well aware of how unhealthy it is. I don't see how giving them a more annoying way to remind them of this will be an effective catalyst for sustained change.

Chair of medicine sounds like a lofty position, until you realize that Singularity university is a venture CRAPitalist institution, which is why he sounds more like a c-tier university MBA than a physician.  I could declare myself chancellor of a non-existent university too, it doesn't mean anything.

Okay this sounds great but heres a question if there is cures what are the doctors going to do everything is so specialized today so if one day theres a cure for cancer all those doctors who have spent hundreds of thousands for school will now be unemployed with so much debt this is why cures are not put out to the public pharmaceutical companies need these doctors to make big money for there investors.

This is not the future.  This is really small thinking.  It's disappointing.  No genetic therapy?  No artificial organs?

How long before you start getting taxed for choices you make? Actually I see companies using this to monitor your work more and ding you pay when they deem you to not be working hard enough. The mis-use of these technologies will outstrip the use of them.

But first you need actual research behind it – because modern fads are point and disturbing these things.

Aloe Vera, coconut oil. 30min excersize a day. 2000 kCal for women and 2500 kCal for men. 2L of water a day.

What the public knows about preventative health standards is often wrong or too simplified.

In the modern world we are creating health conditions though our unhealthy lifestyles as quickly as we are coming up with cures to them – it makes far more sense to solve simple problems with simple measures so medicine can focus on the things that are beyond prevention.

"Be the CEO of your own health" using future technologies. We live videos about this but one thing we notice is there is so much talk about the rate technology is developing. On our channel we talk about how the human is developing and joe this can be accelerated. "As the world speeds up, so must we" Zander woodford-smith
