Intel into bionics. The biometric world has infinite opportunities and here with Intel's new technology it seems with over 30 different types of arthritis physicians would be able to know exactly what type of arthritis they are dealing with.Then treating it is very specific and cure is faster.
Custom diagnosis and treatment is the way modern medecine is heading and ICT is playing a major role in this already. I think we will one day have micro and nano agents embedded in our bodies which can be programmed adaptively to fight off emerging diseases. The equivalent of going to a doctor would be a simple matter of scanning one's body to download the latest anti-illness programme :-)

Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
