Space travel brings out the kid in all of us. The sheer excitement of discovery ignites a wonder in us, and since space is one of the greatest unknowns, what better way to ignite that wonder than space travel? The only problem is, it’s virtually impossible at this point in time to reach these faraway places, which makes it tough to explore them.
In one of the chapters of my recent book "the end of the beginning", I elaborate on the need process and flow for real innovation to happen.
Whether you are an independent practice owner, an intrapreneur, a technopreneur, a mededupreneur or a social entrepreneur, you will have to learn how to manage risk, not take extreme risk. The three basic categories of risk are 1) personal, professional and career risk, 2) business or corporate risk and 3) financial risk.
Artificial intelligence (AI), like most industries, is diffusing in sick care. Applications in surgery are emerging and can generally be categorized as :
I’ve been writing and talking about digital humans for some time now, strongly and assured they will enter our lives sooner than we expect. The other thing that keeps me thinking is the impact it will have on a number of aspects in society.
Jobs, jobs and jobs. Politicians and news outlets talk and write a lot about jobs. The creation of it, the loss of jobs, and how they want to create more in agriculture, in IT, in logistics and even in coal mining (somebody pinch me please). News items, policy makers, governments air statements about the ambition to boost jobs in steel, agriculture, logistics, technology are great and needed.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that innovative medical devices often arise from physicians’ inventive activity, but few studies have documented the extent of such physician-engaged innovation. This 2008 paper uses patent data and the American Medical Association Physician Masterfile to provide evidence that physicians contribute to medical device innovation, accounting for almost 20 percent of approximately 26,000 medical device patents filed in the United States during 1990–1996. Moreover, two measures indicate that physician patents had more influence on subsequent inventive activity than nonphysician patents. This finding supports the maintenance of an open environment for physician-industry collaboration in the medical device discovery process.
