  9. 9. justin spratt, 2016 My Prognostication Principles 1. We over estimate technology in the short term and underestimate it in the long term. 2. Progress happens at the edges. Often it looks like a toy. And, don’t be too quick to judge. The first pornographic novel was written over 150 years before the first scientific journal.

  31. 31. justin spratt, 2016 https://biotechin.asia/2016/09/03/machine-learning-help-revolutionize-cancer- diagnosis/ Conventional tests failed to show any sign of the cancer. The doctors turned to IBM’s Watson (AI). It cross referenced this case against 20 million oncological records, and concluded in a mere 10 minutes that the patient suffered from a rare type of leukaemia… they started a new treatment regimen, and the lady survived. The very best physicians are 10x and even 100x better than the average. Yet every physician is limited by the number of cases they’ve seen in their lifetime… What if we could make the very best extensible using AI?
