Ability to collect all data at reasonable cost: basic problem solved (but quality of health data issue yet to be addressed). Making that data meaningful #smartdata       : the work has just started.

Health-care providers use wireless devices to track vital signs of people with chronic conditions, allowing them to detect problems early and make adjustments in care without office visits.

Absolutely! This has been one of the concerns we were mindful of and we have already added a feature (+Dan Vanuch's idea) that displays battery level of NODE. I believe Dr. Sheth's suggestion is moving toward 'actionable' information rather than just the information :) We will add a thresholding on the battery level to generate an alert.

- Trends, not technology:
- networks not hierarchies, everything will be unbundled, we are node on the network
- coming  #disruption in: money/payment, health and wellness (not healthcare), data leakage, trust and identity.

I found the ideas of/associated with data leakage and unbundling of research particularly intriguing. 

Students: you will find our conversations related to ideas associated with Humandx: https://www.humandx.org/ (that this VC invested in)

Brilliant! couldn't agree more -esp on the over promise of, or attribution of intelligence to deep learning, and on understanding of the brain or neural realism to drive building of intelligent systems now....but in line with "You should get inspiration from wherever you can get it" I do not mind taking inspiration and analogy from cognitive models to do something more "intelligent" and go from data processing to abstractions that have somewhat analogous effect (but is not analogous yet) to perception.

Thanks for pointing out Michael's response- need to read it together with the article-- and while the title and 1st para are wrong or over the top, original interview still captures some caveats right and points out over promises...and correctly points out there is a long way to go on some of these things...

Why do basic science? Here you go.
The answer to why we spend money in pure science research and space exploration is obvious to me, but I often see people whining about how we can invest those (very limited!) dollars on doing other things with direct material benefits. Physicist David Kaplan's has the perfect answer to these complains.

My wife and I agreed - this was the best Indian restaurant in recent memory! And I just completed my visit of 10 countries in last 5 months! Perfect blend of spices - dishes that are different than standard fare at a Punjabi restaurant.

I was unhappy for getting a car that had smoking smell even though the rental car is supported to be nonsmoking. I also had a nail in my tire and that required changing the vehicle on Jan 1 when all except airport locations are closed-. So while I lost some time, Enterprise's phone support and LAX location were excellent about changing the vehicle. For both matters, Brian Lam, the associate at Enterprise's Solar Way location in Fremont was very apologetic and he did his best to do the things right by taking off a day's charge. Discounting for things beyond Enterprise' control, Brian and Enterprise provided excellent service, and hence my rating.

Spent 5+ hours: started with HarbourFront MRT - Marang Trail (short 20 min or so to )- Jewel Box (nice restaurant- had a nice cake and fruit smoothie) - to Mt Farber Loop - Henderson Wave - Terrace Garden - Alexandra Arch - Floral Walk ending in Hort Park. Floral Walk was the highlight. If you like nature walk, then a good place to spend half or full day. But avoid sunny or very muggy afternoons.

A bit upscale restaurant, somewhat pricy but many may find it worth the cost. When we reached, the restaurant was nearly empty, so it was a bit strange when the manager types asked if we had a reservation. Choices for a vegetarian were mainly side dishes and salads, but the one dish they offered - mixed vegetables- we well prepared. Inside decor is nice, lighting very dim. Restaurant was busy by the time we left. Worth a visit.
