1. In 20 Years, It’s Plug & Play:

In 20 years, humans will finally attain the status of cars for their medical care. They’ll have wearable and embeddable sensors with predictive analytics, and, most importantly, autonomous driving capabilities. Most cases of cancer will be successfully treated, Alzheimer’s will be substantially delayed or even pre-empted. DNA sequencing will be performed for most individuals at birth (or as a fetus). Hospitals, except for certain key functions like intensive-care units and operating rooms, will be completely transformed to data-surveillance centers. People will look back and laugh about the old physical office visit and the iconic ‘stethoscope’ along with the way so much of health care was rendered in the pre-digital era.

— Eric J. Topol, chief academic officer of Scripps Health and professor of genomics at the Scripps Research Institute, quoted in the Wall Street Journal
