Move over, humans, the robodocs are coming: Technology is going to significantly transform medicine, with sensors monitoring body functions

Amazing!! (and yet I still speak with dentists who question digital x-rays??)

The health devices that companies such as Apple, Microsoft and Samsung are developing are based on MEMS sensors, which are one of the exponential technologies. These enable the measurement of things such as heart rate, temperature, blood pressure and activity levels and can feed data into cloud-based platforms such as HealthKit.

…By combining these data with our electronic medical records and the activity and lifestyle information that our smartphones observe, Artificial Intelligence-based systems will monitor us on a 24/7 basis. They will warn us when we are about to get sick and advise us on what medications we should take and how we should improve our lifestyle and habits.

I welcome all this technology and believe it will improve the human condition but have concerns about hackers and privacy.
