Four years ago — some of you may remember — I spoke with the renowned cardiologist and researcher. On that occasion, he shared that “AI could restore the care in healthcare”. Fast forward to 2024, Eric and I come together to compare our notes — on the pandemic, the AI wave, and the major technological developments shaping healthcare and medical science today. Eric’s newsletter Ground Truths is the place to go for the latest updates on the scientific and technological developments in medicine.
In this conversation, Eric and I cover…
How to approach healthy aging, healthspan and lifespan,
Personalised medicine and the uptick in scanning — balancing between evidence and affluenza,
How generative AI and LLMs can be major accelerants in healthcare,
The power of temperance drugs — reviewing the impact of GLP-1 agonists (like Ozempic),
Gene editing and mRNA as the biggest breakthroughs in life sciences of our generation,
Funding models and policy infrastructure needed to support future breakthroughs,
…and what is on our (medical) New Year’s wishlist.
We recorded for over 1 hour — and the full length of our discussion is available to paying members of Exponential View, who also have access to all of my previous discussions:
