IoT, AR, VR to beyond with 5G - Connected World

#artificialintelligence

For this column let's consider how IoT (Internet of Things) technologies and 5G will impact medicine and healthcare. Just for a moment I think it's really important to imagine what our society will look like when we imagine real possibilities for technology beyond what we ever dreamed possible. From teaching empathy to med students to enabling telemedicine and telesurgery, the impact of technologies like AR (augmented reality), VR (virtual reality), AI (artificial intelligence), wearables, and robotics in medicine and healthcare are wide ranging and far reaching. With 5G, the possibilities seem even more endless. There are so many exciting applications of IoT technologies in the medical field.

Opinion 'There's Just No Doubt That It Will Change the World': David Chalmers on V.R. and A.I.

#artificialintelligence

Over the past two decades, the philosopher David Chalmers has established himself as a leading thinker on consciousness. He began his academic career in mathematics but slowly migrated toward cognitive science and philosophy of mind. He eventually landed at Indiana University working under the guidance of Douglas Hofstadter, whose influential book "Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid" had earned him a Pulitzer Prize. Chalmers's dissertation, "Toward a Theory of Consciousness," grew into his first book, "The Conscious Mind" (1996), which helped revive the philosophical conversation on consciousness. Perhaps his best-known contribution to philosophy is "the hard problem of consciousness" -- the problem of explaining subjective experience, the inner movie playing in every human mind, which in Chalmers's words will "persist even when the performance of all the relevant functions is explained."


How food manufacturers can use mixed reality tools to enhance operations

#artificialintelligence

Characterized by a fusion of technologies that blur the lines between the physical and digital, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is spreading across the manufacturing world. As a component of this revolution, a growing number of suppliers are using augmented reality (A.R.) to improve operations in workforce training and equipment maintenance. A.R. is a technologically enhanced version of reality created by using technology to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device, such as smart goggles or a smartphone camera. The goggles are often voice-controlled, leaving wearers with both hands free. Statista estimates the A.R. market was worth $5.91 billion in 2018 and that it will reach more than $198.7 billion by 2025.

#artificialintelligence

We're living in a time of wonders, so it's easy to miss some. Every day, tech publications announce fresh hyped-up initialisms. Some people who understand them, and some who just obsess about anything new. An idea arrives, gets a lot of buzz, then seems to vanish while people work on the practical applications. If it seems truly viable, it becomes a big industry term seemingly overnight.


Patients' views of wearable devices and AI in healthcare: findings from the ComPaRe e-cohort

#artificialintelligence

Wearable biometric monitoring devices (BMDs) and artificial intelligence (AI) enable the remote measurement and analysis of patient data in real time. These technologies have generated a lot of "hype," but their real-world effectiveness will depend on patients' uptake. Our objective was to describe patients' perceptions of the use of BMDs and AI in healthcare. We recruited adult patients with chronic conditions in France from the "Community of Patients for Research" (ComPaRe). Participants (1) answered quantitative and open-ended questions about the potential benefits and dangers of using of these new technologies and (2) participated in a case-vignette experiment to assess their readiness for using BMDs and AI in healthcare.

Augmented reality is in the process of succeeding in changing the way we apprehend our whole ecosystem. That includes the way we play, the way we learn, and also the way we work, or even just interact in everyday life. Do you know exactly what augmented reality is? What is the difference between AR and VR? What are some of the use cases for businesses, if there are any?


WIRED Health 2019 post-show roundup

#artificialintelligence

On March 26, at the Francis Crick Institute research centre in London, WIRED Editor Greg Williams kicked off WIRED Health 2019. The event, in its sixth edition, features talks, interviews and panel discussions with the world's most inspiring healthcare innovators, entrepreneurs, and researchers, in order to shed light on what lies ahead for the medicine and healthcare sectors. "We wanted to bring together some amazing innovators in the worlds of healthcare, pharma and technology to look at what the future looks like for health in the age of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, big data and genomics," Williams said in his opening remarks on the main stage. Over the following hours, the speakers took the floor, bringing to life an impressive collection of eye-opening stories about what it takes to make innovation happen. "Discovery research is going to create the future," said Paul Nurse, director of the Francis Crick Institute.
