Technological advances and artificial intelligence (AI) are going to totally transform the way healthcare is delivered over the next five to 10 years. This is the view of Tony Young, National Clinical Director for Innovation at NHS England. But he warns that with the advent of life-changing technologies, we must not lose sight of what it means to be human. As with the arrival of the printing press 500 years ago which gave everyone access to the written word, medicine today is having its own "Gutenberg moment". Technology, such as smartphones and wearables, is giving patients access to medical knowledge and empowering them to take charge of their health and well-being.
