From Wired, interesting look at the robo doc future.
It won’t be long now before the “doctor” treating you for that nagging cold is a machine.
There will be a flesh-and-blood doctor involved in the process, of course, but the robot will do his bidding remotely, perhaps through an iPad.
Technology should make medical care better, faster and less expensive. However entrenched special interests (and there are many in the medical world) will block it at every turn.
