Humanoid Robots Getting Closer to Elderly Care?

I’ve seen this video on many social media channels in the past couple of days although it’s about 2 years old. Plenty of my social media contacts called this robot creepy. Well, if you think such a humanoid robot is creepy, check out the ones below.

According to relevant analyses, these robots will first be used in elderly care.

Why Would Agent Smith From Matrix Advertise GE’s Hospital Software?

Please someone help me understand why the evil Agent Smith from Matrix is used in the advertisement of General Electric’s new hospital software with such dramatic background music? I might be too conservative now, but advertising a hospital software this way in an era when doctors are threatened to lose their job because of super computers (they won’t), is certainly not a good idea and I don’t think it’s funny.

Mobile Health with the eyes of a Medical Futurist: Video for Stanford University

A few weeks ago Stanford University asked me to make a video with a professional crew and talk about mobile health from the medical futurist’s perspective which they can add to the Mobile Health Without Borders course. I was happy to accept this challenge; and I hope you will find the video interesting and useful.

Scienceroll.com: Weekly Introduction

I would like to share my favourite and ongoing projects with you so I can give you a proper introduction to Scienceroll.com.

Medicine 2.0 University Course: This is the second semester of the first university course that focuses on web 2.0 and medicine for medical students. Last semester, almost 50 students attended the 20 slideshows through 10 weeks and they filled a survey out before and after the course. I launched the second semester for English-speaking students (February – May, 2009). I’m open to launch the same course in Second Life.

Diabetes365: The best e-patient project ever

Kerri Morrone is one of the most famous e-patients nowadays. She runs the popular Sixuntilme blog that focuses on diabetes management and now finished a one-year-long project, the Diabetes365 (check the Flickr image collection out):

Over the last 366 days (leap year added the extra challenge), I’ve lived my life with my camera at the ready, snapping photos of everything from CGM sensors to snacks … and the moments in between.  I thought that the Diabetes 265 project would make me feel like diabetes is an overwhelming facet of my life, but instead I’ve seen that diabetes truly does not define any of us.  We can grab pictures of our meters and our pump sites, but there’s also so much LIFE going on between all these moments of diabetes management.

Why is it important?

Because Kerri can provide other patients with sometimes more information on diabetes than their own doctors. She can give support and help to diabetic people around the world. And let’s be honest here. If you find out you have a chronic medical condition, do you check a medical website first or start reading other patients’ stories?

E-patients become guides for other patients. And healthcare needs these valuable guides more than ever…

TED: the world’s greatest thinkers about genetics and medicine

TED (stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

Genomics pioneer Craig Venter takes a break from his epic round-the-world expedition to talk about the millions of genes his team has discovered so far, in their quest to map the ocean’s hidden biodiversity. He updates the TED audience on his discoveries, from the 2,000 photoreceptor genes found in the Sargasso Sea to the thrill of being under house arrest in French waters. Venter ends with his vision for engineered species that can replace the petrochemical industry by creating clean energy.

Nobel laureate James Watson opens TED2005 with the frank and funny story of how he and his partner, Francis Crick, discovered the structure of DNA. The tale is full of colorful details: How Watson had planned to be an ornithologist until Schroedinger’s book What Is Life? transformed him into a geneticist. Watson finishes with one of the topics currently making him tick: the search for genetic bases for major illnesses.

Eva Vertes isn’t a normal young person. At least, that’s what our culture would tell us. Her discovery, at age 17, of a compound that inhibits brain cell death was regarded as a step toward curing Alzheimer’s and won her Best in Medicine at the International Science Fair. Quickly labeled a microbiology prodigy, Eva now aims to find better ways to treat — and avoid — cancer.

Medical inventor Robert Fischell accepts the 2005 TEDPrize, and unveils his three wishes: To finalize the design on an invention to treat migraine headaches without drugs; to discover new cures for brain disorders; and to create a Brain Trust to rethink our approach to medical liability.
