The new era of Connected Everything can bring safety, efficiency, and, of course, enormous savings, both in homes (lights, thermostats, appliances, security cameras…) and, especially, in industry (machines that warn when they’re about to break down, self-driving trucks, automated inventory management, and retail stores without human clerks). Which is great. But IoT is a coin with two faces. Read More >

Consumer access to medical information from the Web has always been a blessing and a curse. While patients are more empowered and informed than they have ever been, new medical apps and devices are creating a world of self-testing, self-diagnosing patients, opening the healthcare industry up to a host of potential problems. Can patients be trusted to use these new devices correctly? Technologies that record heart rate and oxygen saturation, quantified-self gadgets such as Fitbit, Up and Garmin; tracking apps like the new Apple Healthkit app, apps for practitioners such as Epocrates, Anatomy Lap and OsiriX; and urinalysis devices working in tandem with your smartphone, are disrupting healthcare. And what about the issue of privacy?
In this intriguing and entertaining presentation, David Pogue explores these questions, provides some answers and demonstrates some of these new gadgets and apps, offering a clear view on how these new technologies are changing—and will continue to change—the healthcare landscape. David Pogue discusses this new movement—its benefits and drawbacks—and explores the exciting new territory that quantifiable data brings to the table. Read Less ^
