Excerpts from Richard's talks
This futurist has chips in his body
Technological developments in healthcare are taking place at breakneck speed. Think telemedicine, wearables, brain implants that eliminate the effects of epilepsy and Alzheimer’s and bioprinters that print organs. In the future, we’ll swallow an electronic pill that keeps our health in check. Our personalised medication will be 3D-printed at home. Surgeries will be performed by robots, and we’ll even be able to ‘cut’ genetic diseases from our DNA. And best of all – that future is already here!
