1. Moore’s Law in Action: You and I
Maybe you have experienced (as I have) the need to purchase a new computer or phone more often than you wanted to—say every two-to-four years—either because it was too slow, would not run a new application, or for other reasons. This is a phenomenon of Moore’s Law that we all know quite well.
So, how might Moore’s Law be applied to healthcare and what impact might that have on you as a result of the potential future changes to the many aspects of healthcare? Also, what might all of that mean to you as you select how you want to apply your education and skills to the projected changes in the delivery of healthcare services in the future?
2. In the USA, young lawyers already don’t get jobs, (because of IBM’s,
WATSON) you can get legal advice within a few seconds for the basic stuff
with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So, if
you’re studying law, STOP IMMEDIATELY. There will be 90% fewer lawyers in the future and only omniscient specialists will remain.
How do you think this fact and the projections might have applicability to positions in healthcare, specifically your current or expected future position, and how might that change how you might prepare for that future?
