En Irlande, les patients souffrant de la maladie d’Alzheimer pourraient bien devenir des pionniers de la e-santé. Equipés d’un bracelet connecté, une quarantaine de « cobayes » ont accepté d’être suivis en temps réel par leur médecin. Objectif de l’expérience ? Repérer parmi les différentes données collectées celles qui traduisent le mieux l’évolution de la maladie, et établir une plate-forme d’observation commune à toutes les personnes qui suivent le patient. « La démence...

Despite the recent explosion in Big Data, the biopharmaceutical sector has been slower than other industries to embrace Big Data due to the inherent costs and challenges that come with utilization. On the medical side, organizations have begun looking to Big Data as a way to improve everything from clinical trials to adherence. According to recent research from benchmarking firm Best Practices, LLC, Big Data has started informing many decisions. In fact, all participating companies in the...

When IBM’s Watson made its debut winning Jeopardy back in 2011, runner-up Brad Rutter attested to the machine’s capacity saying, “I for one welcome our robot overlords.” Though the loser paints a grim picture of what artificial intelligence might ultimately end up looking like in a distant and unimaginable future, Watson has proven a friend to humanity in the years following his triumph.
