Apple and Google Know What You Want Before You Do. Apple Inc. AAPL -3.21 % and Google Inc. GOOG -0.31 % are racing to anticipate the needs of their users. The technology giants, whose software runs nearly all of the world’s smartphones, are adding features to deliver information before users ask for it. Their moves suggest that smartphones will evolve into devices that dispense information unprompted. The companies are tackling the technology differently, reflecting their own expertise and priorities.

“This is a major battleground. Both companies hope the new features, some of which are expected this fall, will keep their users loyal and lock them into related services that make money. In addition, the ability to anticipate what users want and deliver it at the right moment will be crucial for such future devices as smart watches and connected automobiles. The efforts by Google and Apple are part of a growing wave of “digital assistants” in the technology industry aimed at providing a helping hand for devices. StartupDelta.

Lucien Engelen sur Twitter : "Will be speaking at Cannes Health Lions 2015... Health 1.0, 2.0, 3.0: today’s flow of information has changed what’s possible. This 51 second animation accompanies my article last week in the BMJ, “From Patient Centred to People Powered: Autonomy on the Rise.” The video expresses, concisely, a slide that for years I’ve presented in 3-5 minutes. It’s an idea first published back in 2010 by Lucien Engelen, during the same time period when he was preparing for the TEDx Maastricht event in April 2011 where I spoke. It shows how the flow of valuable information has changed, which makes new things possible, as in all other parts of life. From the BMJ article: The change is illustrated by a visual model created five years ago by Lucien Engelen at Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands and Marco Derksen.

It suggests that knowledge is like a nutrient that enables a more robust response, with the internet as its capillaries. Original version of this concept, by Engelen & Derksen (2010) with clip-art stick figures added This approach is important in updating the culture of medicine. That’s silly. MDs & Patients! Please choose YOUR Telemedicine platform wisely! | Medhacker. Home > Health, Mobilehealth > MDs & Patients! Please choose YOUR Telemedicine platform wisely! 2015 will be a huge year for Telehealth/Telemedicine. In the past, as physicians we have always allowed others implement the systems they want us to use and look were it has taken us. Some might be happy others not so much. As doctors, it is time we come together and make a wise decision on the platforms we will use in the future. For this post I want to emphasize some key points to avoid Doctors getting screwed one more time…1) Telemedicine platforms are not here to “help” you as a doctor.

In general, what is good for the doctor is good for the patient and what is good for the patient is good for the doctor this is because these 2 entities are a team, a partenership (Unless your doctor is a “dbag” then this does not apply and vice versa). Over the last 18 months I have been working on a platform called Curely with 2 other entrepreneurs from Singularity University. Like this: Like Loading... Twitter. Radboudumc: ‘Apple’s HealthKit niet gevaarlijk, maar goed’ Dinsdag, 3 juni 2014 (15:16) | Bart Breij Apple begeeft zich met ingang van iOS 8 op een totaal nieuw terrein: gezondheid. Of misschien wel gerichter: de gezondheidszorg. Met de applicatie Health en de ontwikkelaarssoftware HealthKit kan het een grote rol gaan spelen voor de medische wereld. Het Nederlandse Radboudumc in Nijmegen is een van de eerste Europese ziekenhuizen die aan de slag gaat met de data van Apple.

Maar is het niet gevaarlijk, dat Apple zoveel gewichtige informatie in handen krijgt? Lucien Engelen van het Radboud denkt dat het meevalt. Dat de naam van het Radboud op een van Apple’s presentatieslides verscheen tijdens de WWDC 2014, was geen toeval. “In de gezondheidszorg wordt er te vaak een lousy job gedaan. Engelen lacht als hij – niet voor het eerst – de vraag hoort of het niet gevaarlijk is, dat een grote, machtige speler als Apple over zoveel zorginformatie beschikt: “Ik heb liever dat zo’n grote partij het doet dan een cowboy om de hoek. Ten Symptoms Men Should Never Ignore | MTM Blog. Do you know a man who seems to think that he doesn’t need to see a doctor? Does he think that he is indestructible? Well, many men do. However, it’s important for men to get checked for serious conditions like heart disease and prostate cancer. With the unusual aches, pains and growths that men tend to blow off. According to their article, “10 Symptoms He Shouldn’t Ignore”, Richard Laliberte and Gail Saltz note that “one survey found that a quarter of men who were sick or in pain would wait as long as possible to see a doctor, and 17 percent would wait at least a week.”

Learn about the ten symptoms that a man should never ignore They also note that “experts agree that not every symptom warrants a trip to the doctor, but some seemingly minor signs shouldn’t be toyed with (in men or women). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Getting a man to the doctor can be challenging and may be contributed to them wanting to feel manly. Related Posts: TEDMEDathens : Live now @TEDMEDATHENS Ioannis... A Cancer Diagnosis Involves the Whole Family Not Just the Patient | MTM Blog. FutureMed: Hanging out with smartest people in healthcare. By Patricia Salber Last fall, I decided to splurge on tuition for FutureMed (FM), Singularity University’s week long celebration of all things cutting edge in healthcare and bioscience. It is only day four of the six day course and already my brain is stuffed with enough info on innovation to last a life time.

Just when I think it can’t get any better, FM rolls out a new speaker on yet another mind-boggling topic: cancer genomics, synthetic biology, robotics, the impact of virtual reality on behavior, exponential thinking, and more. Unbelievable…and fun. We have had the privilege of being inspired by Peter Diamandis, founder of the X-Prize and co-founder (together with Ray Kurzweil) of Singularity University. Paul Yock, MD shared the experience of the Biodesign Department at Stanford and the work he has been doing with young innovators across the globe. FM is not a one way “push” of information to a willing group of participants. Frequent Chocolate Consumption Linked to Lower BMI | Inspiring Discoveries | Science. By Chippy YanEpoch Times Staff Created: April 9, 2012 Last Updated: July 24, 2012 Research finds that people who eat chocolate more often have a lower body mass index, despite consuming more calories.

(Cat Rooney/The Epoch Times) More frequent chocolate consumption is linked to lower body mass index (BMI), recent findings from the University of California–San Diego (UCSD) show. Chocolate has already been found to have associations with lowered blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and improved insulin sensitivity. Despite the positive correlations chocolate has with health, people do not want to eat more chocolate due to their fear of weight gain, explained Beatrice Golomb, one of the researchers, in a YouTube video uploaded by the UCSD Medical Center. Golomb says that this study does not support the concern about weight gain and that the correlation with lower BMI did not result from consuming fewer calories or exercising more. Zap your brain into the zone: Fast track to pure focus - 01 February 2012. I'm close to tears behind my thin cover of sandbags as 20 screaming, masked men run towards me at full speed, strapped into suicide bomb vests and clutching rifles.

For every one I manage to shoot dead, three new assailants pop up from nowhere. I'm clearly not shooting fast enough, and panic and incompetence are making me continually jam my rifle. My salvation lies in the fact that my attackers are only a video, projected on screens to the front and sides. It's the very simulation that trains US troops to take their first steps with a rifle, and everything about it has been engineered to feel like an overpowering assault. Then they put the electrodes on me. I am in a lab in Carlsbad, California, in pursuit of an ... Oncology Issues - January/February 2012.
