The technology that enabled an algorithm to beat a world chess champion in 1997 is now making waves in healthcare. In the time since initial testing in 1950, artificial intelligence (AI) has made great strides across industries. While the accelerated development of AI technology is opening what feels like countless doors of opportunity, perhaps some of the most impactful applications are in the medical field. Since 2010, there have been over 154,000 AI patents filed worldwide with the majority being in health-related fields (29.5%). …


What would it take to successfully establish civilization extraterrestrially? The topic may seem like science fiction, but with trailblazers like SpaceX targeting to send cargo and crew to Mars in 2024, it may be a reality sooner than you think. So again, what would it take? Each industry would pose a unique challenge, but let’s consider healthcare. Creating a functional and efficient healthcare system on Mars, a blank slate, would without a doubt require a considerable amount of creative thinking and ingenuity. And thanks to ever-evolving technological advancements, it’s a challenge we’ll undoubtedly tackle. While this problem gives us permission…


When you hear the term blockchain, you may automatically think of cryptocurrency and investing. Understandably so, considering that Bitcoin was at one point the only blockchain in existence, and the terms were often used interchangeably. These days, however, that’s no longer the case. Blockchain technology has evolved beyond purely monetary use and can be applied to a number of industries, from real estate to legal. Because of this malleability, blockchain will likely play an important role in the future of information-enabled health and medicine. In fact, Deloitte indicated last year that healthcare is a particularly proactive industry, and 35 percent…


Advancements in technology and global connectivity are moving faster than ever, and few, if any, industries remain untouched by the rapid growth underway. While information sharing and resource acquisition, among other things, were once slow and tedious, globalization and innovation are shifting our landscape from one of scarcity to abundance: an abundance of knowledge, an abundance of communication options, and an abundance of easy-access resources.

Because of this shift, the pace of adaptation is accelerating, allowing new businesses to grow at exponentially higher rates over the years. Historical data indicates that while a typical Fortune 500 company established prior to…
