The healthcare industry is rife with challenges. The past few years have seen a global healthcare pandemic with COVD-19, causing people to lose their livelihood or have their lives radically changed. Many employees are now working from home full-time [...]
Modern medicine has afforded the world’s population endless benefits. Thanks to scientific advances in medicine, the world’s life expectancy has improved dramatically from the 19th Century to the present. Life expectancy in the United States in 1860 hovered around 40 years of age (give or take). As of 2020, just 160 years later, life expectancy has nearly doubled to around 77 years of age now according to the CDC.
Iconography and imagery have been used by humans for tens of thousands of years. Humans were using tools for cave drawings as early as 73,000 years ago according to a group of archaeologists, led by Christopher Henshilwood. Their findings were of a symbol resembling that of a modern-day hashtag. This finding was not unique, as many others have surfaced in different parts of the world, thousands of years apart. While neanderthals utilized crude tools such as hand-stencils, modern artists may utilize Adobe Creative Suite, architects drafting software, physicians MRI imaging or X-Rays, and mechanical engineers computer-aided design software to design three-dimensional images of potential products. We have certainly come a long way.
Business dynamo and self-proclaimed engineer Elon Musk has perhaps explored almost every frontier imaginable. He’s helped push the limits of private space exploration with SpaceX, improved eCommerce transactions with PayPal, and most recognizably taken Tesla Inc, from a niche electric car manufacturer to a viable alternative to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles that seemingly everyone wants their hands on. Another frontier he is tackling is the human brain with his Neuralink company. Neuralink is a neurotechnology that wants to implement a brain-computer interface (BCI) via tiny electrodes, with the aim of establishing direct communication between the human brain and computers. Neuralink’s aim is also to potentially cure and/or treat paralysis, and depression along with other various neurological conditions.
