Predictive analytics (PA) is transforming virtually every industry, from sports and banking to healthcare. This technology is essential in advancing the healthcare industry, as it offers a full-fledged idea of what a patient’s medical history looks like and compares it to data from patients with similar histories.
Machine learning has the potential to transform the healthcare industry, which routinely deals with large volumes of data, probabilities and real-time data streams from wearable sensors, along with other monitors and equipment. This technology can help us process and make sense of the data, which may then be used to improve patient care in significant ways. From improved treatment efficacy to greater insight into a patient’s condition and even reduced healthcare costs, machine learning will almost certainly prove to be a game changer for the health and wellness industry.

Warby Parker, one of America’s favorite start-ups, has certainly been carrying their share of the weight. Just this month, they released a mobile eye exam that can produce a usable prescription (if you’re lucky). Read More
