(GCF2010) Dr. Michio Kako :" Future of Health Care "

  1. 1. Future of Health Care Dr. Michio Kaku Professor of Theoretical Physics City Univ. of New York His best-seller, Physics of the Impossible, is now a TV series on the Discovery/Science Channel: Sci Fi Science. Co-founder of String Field Theory Author: Hyperspace, Visions, Parallel Worlds.
  2. 2. Health Care in the Future?We are facing a train wreck in slow motion.In the west and Japan, a declining birth rate,increasing life expectancy, and lowimmigration levels. Other nations will follow.Partial Solution: High Technology** Robotics** Nanotechnology** Human Body Shop** New diagnostic and computer technologies
  3. 3. Robots in Industry and Home
  4. 4. Why isJapanspending somuch onrobots?Ans. Theseare robotnurses,becauseJapan’spopulation isaging so fast.
  5. 5. Roboticsurgery –less invasive– moreaccurate –reducesrecoverytime forpatient – cutshospital costsenormously
  6. 6. NanotechnologyThe future will look like the movie FantasticVoyage.Smart Pills will perform surgery from theinsideNanoparticles will zap cancer cells.Portable MRI scanners will become the“Tricorders” of Star Trek
  7. 7. Computers inside the bodysmaller than an aspirin pill.
  8. 8. Nanoparticles which candetect and zap cancer cells
  9. 9. TheTricorderfrom StarTrek – cananalyze anydisease orsubstance –PortableMRIscannerswillbecometricorders
  10. 10. Dna chips – allow you to scan for cancer cells within minutes
  11. 11. Smart toiletsSmart toilets will scan for cancer cells years before a tumor forms – your bathroom in the future will have more computer power than all the hospitals of today.
  12. 12. Human Body ShopFrom your own cells, scientists today cangrowHeart valvesBlood vesselsBone, Noses, EarsBladdersWindpipesNext: Livers and hearts
  13. 13. The Human Body Shop
  14. 14. Growing Human Bladders Today, we can grow skin, blood, heart valves, blood vessels, bone, noses, ears, from your own cells. The first human bladder was grown in 2007. Next: the human liver and pancreas.
  15. 15. Future of the InternetIn the future, all medicine will be on theinternet. Today, we can communicate viaPC and cell phones. In the future, theinternet will be in our glasses and contactlens.
  16. 16. In the future, the internet will be inIn our glasses and even contact lenses.
  17. 17. Smart contacts
  18. 18. Direct Brain-Computer Brain- Interface A direct connection between the brain of a stroke victim and a laptop is possible – the paralyzed person can learn to play video games, send e-mail, and control objects by sheer thought.
  19. 19. An “Encyclopedia of Thought”One can “read” your mind by laboriously compiling acorrespondence between certain MRI patterns and knownthoughts. In this way, one can crudely “read” the thoughts ofanother. This can already be done with lies, and with simpleobjects.
  20. 20. The Human Genome Dictionary:30,000 words with no definitions30,
  21. 21. All of uswill have aCD with allour geneson it –anowner’smanual forour body –Biologistswill usethis tocreate“super-rice”
