We publish the text and video of the lecture, neuroscientist and venture capital expert, candidate of chemical Sciences, fellow of the Institute of bio-organic chemistry Russian Academy of Sciences Dmitry Kuzmin, read November 10, 2011 at the club ZaVtra (Pies on Sretenka) in the framework of the project “Public lectures Watered.
The text of the lecture
My wife to me before the lecture said that when I say the word “law” and it will not be the law of Boyle-Mariotte), in this audience will listen to three, maybe four. But I’m still going to say that word. We now have almost adopted the law on the health of the nation, you might say. On the one hand, well. On the other hand, if you look at this law, it becomes clear that he accepted written and, most importantly, based on today’s condition, what medicine, what today people, today the population, etc. without some thought about the future at all.

On the pages of our magazine we wrote about the doublet medical applications with a common prefix Smart – Smart Doctor Schedule and Smart Patient Schedule. For those who have forgotten both programs successfully replace standing in queues, automatically assign a PCP (pick and choose) and inconsistent explanations, what brings you here. In client side you could make an appointment to see the doctor, and the doctor (if you, of course, had to do with medicine) recorded clients on all portfolio items: diagnosis, photograph, name, surname. Laudatory description of the program we finished that, they say, it is all good, but it is unknown how it will go to the people – after all, not every doctor (especially in Russia) will go to such drastic measures. Now, after some time, it is safe to sum up the interim results.
Let’s start with the fact that the base Smart Doctor now has more than thousands of doctors worldwide. And this is definitely a success – although the figure may seem small, it is important to understand that the key to these things is to break the ice. And the parade can then the app will go on a doctor’s hands, smashed the walls of the hospital ward and after some time will become a mandatory thing in every phone is as it is now, say, the mail app. Continue reading
It is a symbol of future medicine. Rex is not a robot and not a cyborg. He is an artificial human. Thanks to the dentures Rex sees, hears, walks, breathes. It can even keep up with the conversation, because the creators gave the bionic man with artificial intelligence. Rex has all bodies are not just artificial. Heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, joints, blood, eyes – all of these mechanisms are quite capable in a few years to replace live – lost or unusable. A little more, and we can live as much as you want. Perhaps the person who will live to 1,000 years has already been born on Earth! Continue reading
The history of mankind is full of sorrow and suffering. Hundreds of thousands of years ago our ancestors fought alone with nature, almost always losing. The person does not have powerful claws, no tough skin. In the battle with the elements, ruthless and cruel, he has little chance. But the gift of reason gave us a different weapon that is not given to man to disappear in the evolutionary battles, like the others: we’re transforming our everyday living environment. From the moment when man made the first gun that has never existed in the Universe, he opened the way to modern civilization.
Now, eons later, we are so used to the built environment, you yourselves have created that are not even aware of its existence. Man lives thanks to the work of the various services and infrastructures. Perhaps, almost any resident of the metropolis feels ancient chill inside, when the lights in his house suddenly pales, and he again left alone with Erebos. Continue reading
