Are we getting closer to a really humanoid robot? Here is a new step:

The famous astronaut, Chris Hadfield, had a great presentation at the recent TED conference. Enjoy!
Here is Larry Page, CEO of Google, describing the directions Google is heading at the moment including the issues of electronic medical records or artificial intelligence.
In an era when IBM Watson, the supercomputer, tries to tackle brain cancer, everything is possible:
This morning, IBM and the New York Genome Center announced a partnership to test whether Watson, the computer that won on Jeopardy, can sift through the genomes of cancer patients and help doctors pick drugs. This effort could hold the key to making DNA sequencing for cancer affordable, but there is a vast amount of work to do that will take years at a minimum.
Recently, I’ve been coming across plenty of news articles and posts about the moonshot for health. It might be a coincidence but I just visited a team that is competing in the Google Lunar X Prize challenge. The Puli Space Team is based in Hungary but their moonshot is to get a probe on the moon which takes 500 meters and transmits HD video and images back to Earth.
With access to information, resources and expertise, as well as with crowdfunding now everything is literally possible.
The mission of Puli Space Technologies is to develop the new techniques required to routinely send spacecraft to the Moon, to explore new frontiers and to provide quality services for forward-thinking investors interested in commercializing space.
As the project has to be funded privately (90%), please feel free to help them through the Small Step Club.
Molly Stevens had a great TED talk about a new way to grow bone.
What does it take to regrow bone in mass quantities? Typical bone regeneration — wherein bone is taken from a patient’s hip and grafted onto damaged bone elsewhere in the body — is limited and can cause great pain just a few years after operation. In an informative talk, Molly Stevens introduces a new stem cell application that harnesses bone’s innate ability to regenerate and produces vast quantities of bone tissue painlessly.
I’ve been watching closely the developments related to the use of Google Glass in medicine. Once I wrote that start-ups focusing on Google Glass and medicine should be able to join accelerators and incubators. Fortunately, this step has been taken as Palomar Health and Qualcomm Life teamed up to build an incubator for developers called Glassomics.
Here is a video describing what Glassomics can do:

Healthcare should be centered around the patient and the hospital experience should be entirely redesigned. Medical professionals should act as partners with their patients and as patients will measure any health parameters about themselves at home, the process of delivering healthcare will be totally different. Do you think it’s futuristic?
See what the Danish government came up with:
For those not tracking with the ambitious Danish experiment to leverage technology – specifically telemedicine – to restructure their community based and selectively ‘inefficient’ hospital centric delivery system see: ‘Restructuring & modernizing the hospital sector’, ‘Potential gains from hospital mergers in Denmark‘ or ‘Widespread Adoption of InformationTechnology in Primary Care Physician Offices in Denmark: A Case Study.’
Who has never heard about the hit song, “what does the fox say“? But who thought medical students at Harvard Medical School could be that creative/funny/weird?
