How Tempus Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Help Cancer Patients



You’d agree with me that every industry in the world currently is one way or the other being influenced by the latest bad boys in the technology sector, “Artificial Intelligence” and “Machine Learning”. Even the Adult Products industry is embracing Artificial Intelligence with the use of AI powered dolls.

However, a question I’ve asked myself for a long time is this – “How Will A.I improve the lifespan of people?”.

Basically I’ve thought of Elon Musk’s suggestion of uploading a human’s consciousness to a machine so you live on when your body dies.

It’s a development that might take years to accomplish though I’m not a huge fan of messing with the order of nature. However, there are people who are actually using Artificial Intelligence to increase the lifespan of people ; not by uploading your consciousness to a machine (That really sounds like a sci-fi movie 😂😂) but by collecting data and making proper analysis to improve and save the lives of Cancer patients.

Artificial Intelligence should be the next big step in the medical industry. Eric Lefkofsky and his team of professionals at Tempus work round the clock to make sure that these patients still have a second chance to fight off a disease that has taken the lives of millions.

I lost a friend of mine to cancer and I know how depressing it felt. Getting to know that there’s a team using Artificial Intelligence to increase the chances of survival for patients suffering from life threatening diseases is truly a life saver and I believe it would definitely be a good turning point for everyone practicing medicine all over the world.

My body system is different from yours and yours is certainly different from the next person close to you. These differences mean that we all may not have similar reactions and symptoms to different diseases and also to specific kinds of medications that is why the Team at Tempus is on a mission to redefine how analytical data is used in the medical industry.

Their goal is for each patient to benefit from the treatment of others who came before them by providing physicians with tools that learn as they gather more data.

This data also keeps record of different patterns to enable doctors trace the occurrence of cancer cells in different patients based on the similarities in the diagnosis and medical report of each patient. It’s not limited to just cancer though.

The tools Tempus provides doctors with can also be used to save the lives of patients suffering from other life threatening diseases.

With a team like
around, I definitely believe that the medical world just got better. Instead of relying on limited data, Physicians can now have access to unlimited and carefully organized data to enable them treat patients and save many families.

Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion



Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 2

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

Google Stadia

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia Controller

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 3

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?
