The Future of Health

Medical science is characterized far more by incremental advances than transformational discoveries. Nevertheless, few, areas of research have been hastened more by the technological advances of the past decade than medicine. Thanks largely to the expanding affordability of computing power, data processing, and increasingly sophisticated software, the “precision-medicine” promise of the 2000s is finally here. This raises the question of how far we are willing to go in “playing god.”
