How to add in Basis

Although Intel said the smartwatch was not its recently acquired Basis sleep/motion tracker, the company said it's looking on ways to integrate Basis into future programs. I'm surprised they didn't conduct this study with Basis in the first place.

Gathering data is one thing our electroncis can do so well...finding patterns that lead to better understanding and treatment is the hard job methinks.

Industry has to make use of the data and provide the solution. But they must feel it costs too much to go through all the data. Otherwise why the need for hard sell?

That is news to me that Andy Grove has Parkinson. This may be a better Moore's Law to crack. Intel should spare nothing to get this issue solved. Getting big data into the domain of chip design sounds interesting. Intel has an opportunity here to reshape this industry that has been software driven.

Traditional treatment studies take a large population of patients and compare the success of a new treatment against a placebo (or the previous treatment). This makes perfect sense if everyone were identical. However, cancer research is showing that individual differences may be very meaningful.

If "ONLY" 5% of the subjects respond to a particular treatment, it might be that the treatment is not very effective. However, it might also mean that a particular genotype of the population (5% of the group) is completely cured by the treatment and other genotypes are not.

Big data and genetic analysis provide a unique opportunity to conduct studies to identify if there are subsets of the population that do respond well to a particular treatment. The day is coming when treatments will be customized to our genotype.  It is already happening for some cancers.
