A new way to spell Health: with 0s and 1s

April 23, 2016


Thousands of years ago, mummification in the Old Egypt provided the first insights into the human body; in the Middle Ages, bloodletting was thought to be the Holy Grail of Medicine; fast-forward a few years Pasteur’s discovery of Penicillin took its place.
Now, a new age is upon us (and boy oh boy would Pasteur be caught off-guard!): as Computer Science and Electrical Engineering dilute into Medicine, healthcare is increasingly becoming a series of highly-complex, highly-challenging and highly-rewarding engineering problems, providing us insights never once thought to be possible and paving the way for the most effective treatments to date.
CPUs are becoming the new penicillin. So, ready for vaccine time?
