Design Week @ SXSW 2016 – Genomics will be “bigger than the internet”

Sanjay Patil of MDLive and former Apple chief executive John Sculley provided a fascinating insight into precision medicine, healthcare on demand and the quantified self.

The jaw-drop moment came when the pair started discussing genomics. Sculley claimed that genomics and precision medicine “will have far bigger impact on humanity than the Internet”.

The technology – he claims – will help solve issues about how we feed populations, how people can have the best possible lifestyle and how we treat people for cancers.
