Is this biometric data is really going to create any benefit while so many advanced medical products that are built to these tasks are not really able to deliver the actual need.

Someone needs to figure out value proposition...but the key is cost...and bringing Samsung on is a win for this market

From graphene to medicals, Samsung is a more researched company than most of its competitors. So when they get on board like this, we expect real changes in the industry. Very soon, medical diagnosis will be home-done.

With scale, cost drops. That is what Samsung does well.

As an engineer I am excited about these new wearable technologies that are set to revolutionize the medical diagnostic and health care aids.

But as a common man I am a bit skeptical whether such high profile gadjets will be pushed onto the consumers unnecessarily .

With half knowledge and the self diagnostic aids such as these wearable devices , many people are bound to become over anxious about their health parameters and may get get addicted to such gadgets to unnecessarily keep monitoring their health parameters and start popping pills based upon some half baked knowledge available on internet.

@prabhakar_deosthali: I share your mixed feelings about this sloooowly emerging category of products.

Donald Jones made the good point that glucose monitors have gone retail, essentially giving many peoploe the chance to manage theor own diabetes quite successfully. This will be the pattern with many other ailments, he said.

@goafrit: Frankly, I am not sure how deep Samsung's R&D is in the key medical aspects of this sector.

I suspect Younjg Sohn is championing it in part because it is one key aspect of the next big thing in its mobile competition with Apple.

I forgot to mention that I met a Wipro CTO at the event. He said his company in India is also working on platforms for consumer medical wearables, generally trying to use off the shelf hardware as much as possible and get prototypes into clinical trials.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
