Looking Back At Today’s Healthcare From The Future in 2050 – Video

A lot of people ask me about the future of medicine and healthcare. What’s coming next, what about the future of radiology, genomics or health sensors. They ask me to make really sharp predictions. But instead of this, let’s do something else now. Let’s look back from 2050, and see what today’s healthcare included, what barbaric elements played an important role in today’s healthcare in the 2010s.

Please let me know if I missed something.

What To Expect From Sequencing Your Microbiome? – Video

Since 1997, I’ve been quantifying myself. The reason was living a healthy life for which I needed data. I’ve had genomic tests, used health wearables, the data they provided me with, I even thought about what could come after the so-called wearables revolution.

Getting my microbiome sequenced was just another step forward. Another attempt at learning more about my health and my body. I chose uBiome as I have been following them for at least a year. The microbiome is the colonies of bacteria living in our digestive system. They influence how we eat, digest, sleep or what mood we have. Knowing more about those cc. 8 kilograms of microorganisms could yield important pieces of information.

I ordered the test, received the sampling tube, provided a tiny sample of my feces and shipped it back. Three weeks later, the results arrived in my account.

Here is the overall structure of my microbiome:

I can compare my results to those of vegetarians, men, women, athletes, heavy drinkers and more.

They tell me the types of bacteria I have, the most unique ones and the most enriched or depleted ones too compared to the results of people of my age, gender and lifestyle habits (I had to fill in a very long survey about that).

The results didn’t change my lifestyle as there was no reason for that. My microbiome is similar to that of omnivore men. I must keep on living a healthy life. But learning more about my body and health certainly made a big impact on my life. Measuring health is purely freedom and I’m enjoying it from my home.

5 Reasons Why Humans Is The Best TV Show About The Future of Robot Companions

I love all the branches of science fiction either in books or movies but the favorite kind is when authors and creators depict the future of our lives. We might soon live with robot companions that possess artificial intelligence and they could change how healthcare is delivered too. So far, the 2012 movie Robot & Frank has seemed to be the best example, but now I have a new favorite, Humans. It premiered on Channel 4 and AMC this June and has been receiving positive reviews.

Here is the plot summary:

In a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant that’s so similar to a real human it’s transforming the way we live.

AMCs-New-Hit-Show-Humans

I think there are five reasons why it might be the best TV series ever about our future robot companions.

1) It’s more about characters than science fiction.

When you start using a futuristic device at your home, it gets incorporated into everyday life instead of the technological backround playing the most important role. In this show, characters are better described than the actual technology behind the robot companions. What matters is how we will live with them, not how they will function.

2) These companions are on the verge of becoming conscious.

They possess artificial intelligence, but the desired friendly kind. This is the kind many scientists think we wouldn’t be able to create. The main plot of the show is about a few robots becoming conscious. And this is a crucial issue regarding the future of humanity.

3) There are companions designed for taking care of the elderly.

Some robots are depicted as healthcare professionals that can take care of the elderly at their homes. They have pre-programmed protocols and were designed to make sure those people live a healthy life and get help in emergency.

4) Companions can measure any parameters at home.

It’s not even too futuristic, but those robots can measure any health parameters and vital signs by looking at the patient or touching them for a second. They have all the medical records of the patient and keep the information private.

5) Companions have sexual features too.

Those who think users will not have sexual fantasies about robots that look perfectly like a human are wrong. In the show, this delicate issue is handled properly and honestly. The robots have a special +18 code with which some additional features can be unlocked.

Beautiful scenes, good plot and actors who play robots in a perfect way. Don’t miss it.
