…Everything, and it will be much sooner than you think. It’s an example of the accelerating advances in Computer Science, Biotechnology, and Nanotechnology that will enable us to, for example, transform Healthcare from Diagnosis and Treatment to Wellness and Longevity.
As announced by Ginni Rometty in her keynote address at CES 2016 (it’s also on YouTube), IBM is investing heavily in Watson, and the results already include the ability to predict the onset of a hypoglycemic event three hours in advance. That was developed by Medtronics ‘powered’ by Watson. In the conclusion of that segment of her presentation Ginni said to Medtronics’ Omar Ishrak, “…we will change the face of Healthcare forever.”
Others who described their developments powered by Watson were Under Armour and Softbank Robotics. These are only a few examples of what’s happening today. I’m excited about being a part of a future with IBM Watson Health.
