Laurent Alexandre: «La médecine personnalisée ne doit pas être le monopole des GAFA»

C’est le passage du prêt-à-porter au sur-mesure et, associé au dossier électronique, cela induira un suivi en continu des effets des médicaments. La médecine génomique est un challenge pour nous médecins qui n’avons pas été préparés au « big data ». Il existe 2 millions de mutations (variants génétiques) dans le génome de chacun de nos patients (ou le nôtre…) par rapport au génome de référence - ce gold standard appelé hRef38. On connaît déjà 200 millions de SNPs (single nucléotide polymorphisms) qui sont les positions de notre ADN qui peuvent faire l’objet d’une variation.

On devrait dépasser le milliard de SNPs répertoriés autour de 2020. Tempête numérique. Google a lancé une cohorte de 10 000 patients qui seront monitorés et suivis pendant quatre ans.

What Does Japanese Robot Pepper Do at Belgian Hospital?

It's easy to see why this humanoid robot got the job as the newest staff member at Belgium's AZ Damiaan hospital. Pepper speaks 19 languages, knows his way around the place, and has the perfect bedside manner. Employed to welcome patients and visitors, it was developed by Belgium's Zora Bots to improve health care. The company's Fabrice Goffin says Pepper is not like other humanoid robots on the market.

Computers and Robots: Decision-Makers in an Automated World

Effects of Technology on Population Over the last few decades, technology has advanced at a rapid rate and spread around the globe. The affordability and accessibility of technology has brought many benefits, including better scientific research, improved quality of life, and a higher average life expectancy in a number of countries.

Since many aspects of daily life are automated, people can focus on their careers and interests. Can robots handle your healthcare? An ageing demographic in many leading economies means that governments expect a huge increase in the demand for ‘carebots’ in health and social care.

Can robots handle your healthcare?

But is the technology up to the task? As life expectancy increases, particularly in wealthier countries, a shortage of carers is becoming alarmingly evident. If the problem of dealing with an ageing population isn’t addressed soon, there will be massive consequences for elderly and sick people and those who care for them, as well as for healthcare systems worldwide. Japan is the first nation to be hit by what has been somewhat tastelessly called the ‘silver tsunami’, with more than a quarter of its population aged over 65, and the proportion in many European countries is topping 15 per cent. Can robots handle your healthcare? Japan is testing robots as caregivers and companions. Could that work in the U.S.? A car company as a maker of robots?

Japan is testing robots as caregivers and companions. Could that work in the U.S.?

I suppose it makes sense, given the electronics now being stuffed into autos enroute to a driverless future. Consider Toyota, which developed a robot called Kirobo and had it launched to the International Space Station some three years ago. Just over a foot tall, Kirobo became pals with Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, becoming something of a conversation partner and doubtless helping the entire crew lighten their long hours of work in space. So successful was Kirobo at the task that Toyota has now announced Kirobo Mini, a diminutive version of the machine, that will go on sale next year in Japan. The robot made its first appearance last year at the Tokyo Motor Show, reinforcing the idea that transforming artificial intelligence can spawn new lines of technology no matter what a company’s background. So are U.S. automakers going to follow suit? New Japanese Robot Assists In Elderly Care. Who would want to be cared for by a robot? Red alert – the robots are coming closer, and they’re coming for us, the old people.

Who would want to be cared for by a robot?

I used to think the worst that could happen to me would be life in a care home, but this is an even scarier option – life alone with laminate floors and a bossy robot (robots need smooth surfaces). I thought we were safe from robot “carers” – that they only had them in Japan or Singapore, but now they’re planning to have them in Kensington and Hertfordshire. MiRo, by Sebastian Conran Associates, is a “biomimetic companion robot” dog that will transmit news of any problems to a hub, remind us to take our medicine, and of our visitors’ names. What visitors? How a robot could be grandma’s new carer. Sitting in a studio in Kensington, London, the designer Sebastian Conran walks me through a worst-case scenario.

The new Kirobo Mini robot from the Japanese automaker can't do much but chatter in a high-pitched voice, but supposedly has the smarts of a five-year-old. Fuminori Kataoka, general manager in charge of the project, says its value is emotional, going from home to car to the outdoors as a faithful companion, although the owner must do all the walking and driving.

Japan Prefers Robot Bears to Foreign Nurses

Robear, “the strong robot with the gentle touch,” is a nursing-care robot — with a cuddly look — touted as strong enough to lift up elderly Japanese and bring them to the bathroom, but also gentle enough to provide them support as they sit down in wheelchairs. But on a recent visit to Meijo University in Nagoya, Japan, where Toshiharu Mukai, the robot’s primary creator, works to improve the ursine care attendant, Robear had a problem with his circuitry and wasn’t moving anywhere. Robear was developed at RIKEN, a partially government-funded research institute, and is the product of substantial Japanese government subsidies designed to promote elder-care robots. But Mukai says the robot isn’t ready for prime time and may not be for decades. Robear, it turns out, is a little too rough for his job, especially considering elderly people’s “fragile skin.” Tribune : la médecine est-elle la prochaine conquête de l'intelligence artificielle ? - Sciences.

Belgian Hospitals Employ Robots as Receptionists. Two hospitals in Belgium have employed robots to welcome patients and visitors, in what is reportedly the first use of automata to greet people in a medical setting. The robot, named Pepper, was unveiled Monday at a hospital in the eastern city of Liege, where it will act as a receptionist, Agence France-Presse reports. The cartoon-featured humanoid robot, which costs about 30,000 euros ($33,800), is also being introduced at another facility in Ostend — in northwest Belgium — where it will perform the extra function of guiding visitors to the hospital's appropriate departments.

Pepper the robot is manufactured by Tokyo-based tech firm SoftBank and versions are assembled in France, where they have already been tested out in a few shopping malls. The robot, described by its makers as "kindly, endearing and surprising," has a tablet computer mounted on its chest. It interacts with humans using cameras and microphones fitted in its head and touch sensors in its head and hands. Current status of robotic surgery in Japan. What Does Japanese Robot Pepper Do at Belgian Hospital? Supercharge healthcare with artificial intelligence. Pattern-recognition algorithms can transform horses into zebras; winter scenes can become summer; artificial intelligence algorithms can generate art; robot radiologists can analyze your X-rays with remarkable precision. We have reached the point where pattern-recognition algorithms and artificial intelligence (A.I.) are more accurate than humans at the visual diagnosis and observation of X-rays, stained breast cancer slides and other medical signs involving general correlations between normal and abnormal health patterns.

Before we run off and fire all the doctors, let’s better understand the A.I. landscape and the technology's broad capabilities. A.I. won’t replace doctors — it will help to empower them and extend their reach, improving patient outcomes.

While the idea of ‘a robot in every home’ reminiscent of The Jetsons is far from being realized, robots are finding their way more and more into nursing homes. By 2030, the number of elderly in the world will double from 600 million today, while a shortage of caregivers for the elderly will also rise dramatically.

Filippo Cavallo is a professor at the BioRobotics Institute near Pisa where he founded Robot-Era that makes robots that move around on wheels but have a friendly humanoid face. Cavallo says the robot’s sensors and cameras are used to gather – and analyze – real-time data that’s sent to the cloud wirelessly where algorithms extrapolate such advanced information as whether someone is showing signs of dementia.

Robots/Robotics in Healthcare. Post Written by Guest Blogger Bernadette Keefe, M.D. Introduction Robots, through their combined “otherness” and “sameness”, capture the human imagination. However, the purpose of robots, and use of robotics, has always been, essentially, practical. Humans have used robots to do work since ancient times. It’s the capacity of robots to produce, on a consistent basis, over and over again, which makes them valuable.

The healthcare industry is under significant pressure from many sides. Les robots vont vous voler votre boulot, mais aussi créer votre futur métier. Pepper the robot begins work in Belgian hospitals to treat patients. Meet the future face of healthcare assistance - a friendly faced robot named Pepper. Its diction is still a little odd, and his movements sometimes a bit hesitant, but the robot is all geared up to help patients at two Belgian hospitals. The humanoid assistant, who has a screen on his chest and a round head, is the first robot in the world to be used to greet people in a medical setting, its software creators said.

On March 10, 2014, my mother, my sister-in-law, and I walked up the stairs to tell my brother’s four daughters that their father had died. Though he had been sick for two years, the news came as a total shock.

We each went for one child, enveloping them completely in the hope that our embrace would shield them from the horror of what we were saying. It did not. Their primal screams remain etched on my brain. We didn’t tell his youngest, who was four years old, that night. We were desperate for guidance but also paralyzed by intersecting layers of grief: anger over how much he had suffered; fear for the gaping, irreversible, hole he had left; and anxiety over how to move forward, even if just to get groceries.
