Cancel Everything

“Cancel Everything” is a painting by the father of Calligraffiti, Niels Shoe Meulman

Like most baby boomer CEOs, I used to believe in cooping people up in corporate buildings so that we could leverage the community mind. This was an anchoring bias of the industrial revolution where the factories were open from 9 to 5 so that the workers could operate the machines. Children were schooled from 8 to 4, so that life and work were balanced. Life had become a supply chain. Even after machines were decentralized and distributed, working from home was still out of the question. …

doc.ai has seen awesome demand for a new kind of prospective research study called a data trial. Our first data trial was launched this past fall and called “Can Artificial Intelligence Predict Your Risk of Allergies?”

The study gathered data from doc.ai users about their allergy symptoms and triggers. Study participants are asked to document, via the doc.ai app, the severity and time of their symptoms (e.g., high, medium, or low severity).

We’ve analyzed the data from the first 1,441 participants who reported allergy symptoms between September 1…

There seems to be a consensus nowadays that medical information in the United States doubles every 73 days estimated to arrive at hefty 2.3 zettabytes (ZB) by 2020. But even these optimistic calculations do not take into account what happened this month when Google announced “Towards Federated Learning At Scale: System Design” and happily said:

“We have reached a state of maturity sufficient to deploy the system in production and solve applied learning problems over tens of millions of real-world devices; we anticipate uses where the number of devices reaches billions”…

Medical data is a valuable asset and any asset that has value can be considered a currency. People who generate data should own that currency and be able to share, sell, buy, or do whatever else they choose to do with it. At doc.ai we give our users full ownership and control over their medical data: they can easily control how, when, and with whom their data is shared.

Why Does It Matter?

Buying and selling medical data is a multi-billion dollar industry. With the rise of awareness about the abuse of data management and the development of regulation addressing…

doc.ai has announced a new AI course for doctors. This is the first AI course specifically designed for doctors.

This course is the first in a series of data science, deep learning, and decision science courses for physicians scheduled to be launched in 2019 by Professors Chirag Patel and Arjun Manrai from Harvard Medical School, experts in bioinformatics and advisors at doc.ai. These courses will make machine learning tools accessible to a wide number of people in medicine.

The creation of this course was inspired by a conversation…

Data scientists and machine learning engineers are the most in-demand professionals in the market to date. The downside of the growth of this community is the lack of ready-to-go infrastructure for easy and productive work. In order to address the needs of the community, especially researchers working with computer vision machine learning models, doc.ai has released the Net Runner app for iOS.

The Net Runner project was presented at NeurIPS last week in Montreal at the “Machine Learning on the Phone and Other Consumer Devices” workshop.

Net Runner helps data scientists without mobile software experience prototype and…

We have launched our newest data trial “Can Artificial Intelligence Predict the Optimal Supplements for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis?” in order to build a predictive model that could help define which supplements are most effective for IBD for each participant who is contributing with his or her real-world data.

We collaborated on this project with Sean Ahrens, a patient advocate and founder of Crohnology.com: a network for patients with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Sean is also an advisor at doc.ai.

uBiome, the leader in microbiomics, is also collaborating by providing all participants with free gut microbiome test kits.

We are in the first week of 2019 — a week that usually involves a pause for reflection and good resolutions.

Health is a key component of success. If you are in good health, you have the energy to plan for the future and execute those plans accordingly. Think about what you really want and where you are heading in your life; you have the capacity to build relationships with your friends and family.

So, taking care of your health is the best gift you can give yourself since your health impacts all areas of your life. However, you can…

You may never have heard the word “omics” before using the doc.ai app. However it might sound familiar because you probably already ran into the term “genomics”, the study of genomes. Our genes are part of the millions of biomarkers that make up our body and may be valuable in helping to predict our health risks.

The study of omics helps to identify biologic and environmental markers to get a more complete picture of our health. …
