Watson starts a new era
I love IBM's Watson, and every initiative interconnected with this super powerful AI. The healthcare sector is going to see rapid advances in telemedicine thanks to Watson.
Assisting doctors in remote areas through AI, and telemedicine will save lives, and improve the quality of life of those who can't access medical attention for either live in remote areas or for the local hospital not counting with specialists.
Both open source, and cloud apps are going to make a hugh difference in the process. Not to mention the many eHealth startups working on innovative solutions as well, and the amount of data collected that once analysed will provide invaluable information to make more and faster improvements in the system.
