The amount, frequency, and quality of COVID research data, papers, studies, information, and news, coming from Margaretta Colangelo is nothing short of extraordinary. Seemingly, not an hour goes by without her posting something very cool to our LinkedIn network. She’s become my go-to source for everything COVID.

I thought she was just a very brainy woman in a high tower using powerful binoculars to survey the worldwide COVID landscape and then reporting on what she saw to the rest of us. …


DeepTech: Where Engineering Meets Deep Science
The Synergetic Convergence of AI, Data Science, & Advanced Biomedicine

Since January 2020 I’ve shared hundreds of daily summaries of COVID-19 research. This article includes highlights from my daily sumaries of COVID-19 research published in September 2020.

What to Expect from First-Generation COVID-19 Vaccines

This is an article by Dr. Gabriel Leung, Dean of Medicine at Hong Kong University Medical Center, and Dr. Malik Peiris, Professor at the University of Hong Kong. They write that: 1) COVID vaccines are needed, even if they have minimal impact on transmission 2) COVID vaccines may not help us achieve herd immunity 3) COVID vaccine…


Longevity: Where Technology Meets Precision Health — Scientific Breakthroughs, Frontier Technologies, and Longevity Economy

Research from the Stanford Center on Longevity suggests that people born between 1965 and 1980 (Generation X) are expected to live 20–30 years longer than previous generations. A 45-year-old woman living today in excellent health has a 20% chance of living to 100 and a 45-year-old man in excellent health has an 11% chance of living to 100.

My interest in aging research stems from an interest in science and technology and the possibility of using scientific and technological advances to slow down aging and extend…


FinTech & The Digital Economy: Leveraging Key Enabling Technologies Including AI, Blockchain & WealthTech

Blockchain enables a new form of money. It’s a type of money with fundamental advantages over traditional money. These advantages are so huge that this new form of money may eventually supplant all legacy money systems in the world. Blockchain will open up opportunities for more buyers and sellers, and enable transactions and economic activity that want to exist, but can’t under the current money system. This new economic activity may come to dwarf the size of the current economy, yielding tremendous opportunity.

Blockchain is the…


FinTech & The Digital Economy: Leveraging Key Enabling Technologies Including AI, Blockchain & WealthTech

A significant number of executives from 151 financial institutions in 33 countries say that within the next two years they expect to become mass adopters of AI.

A significant number of executives from 151 financial institutions in 33 countries say that within the next two years they expect to become mass adopters of AI and expect AI to become an essential business driver across the financial industry. This information was collected as part of a survey on AI in Financial Services conducted by the World Economic…


FinTech & The Digital Economy: Leveraging Key Enabling Technologies Including AI, Blockchain & WealthTech

Blockchain technology will create more than $176 billion dollars worth of business value by 2025 and $3.1 trillion by 2030.

Gartner Blockchain Technology Report, 2019

Many large companies are working on implementing Blockchain and it’s estimated that over 95% of these projects will be built on Ethereum. Enterprise companies have chosen Ethereum because Ethereum has the core capabilities needed to build enterprise applications… today. Almost all of the pieces are in place. To build enterprise Blockchain applications, companies need the ability to store immutable data on…


FinTech & The Digital Economy: Leveraging Key Enabling Technologies Including AI, Blockchain & WealthTech

Blockchain isn’t just a more efficient way to settle securities. It will fundamentally change market structures, and maybe even the architecture of the Internet itself.

Abigail Johnson, CEO, Fidelity Investments

Although people understand blockchain as a theoretical solution, many haven’t understood the impact that blockchain is going to have. There’s an engineering gap that needs to be filled, but there’s also an understanding gap. And people want to know how we will get to the point where blockchain is actually implemented solving real world problems. …


FinTech & The Digital Economy: Leveraging Key Enabling Technologies Including AI, Blockchain & WealthTech

Blockchain has the potential to do many things, but to achieve these things you need programmability. Programmability is what makes blockchain truly transformational.

Understanding the distinction between programmable and non-programmable blockchains is crucial to understanding their value and business potential. In my previous article, I described blockchain’s potential. To get the benefits that I described, you need a programmable blockchain, meaning that a programmer can actually write a program in a high level language that expresses the terms of a smart contract that is being carried…


In January the world watched as the coronavirus spread through Wuhan and China quarantined millions of people. After witnessing what happened in China, some leaders watched and waited. Others took early action against the virus. The World Health Organization didn’t characterize the virus as a global pandemic until March 11 when it had already spread to 114 countries and killed more than 4,000 people.

Long before the virus was officially characterized as a pandemic, some leaders around the world had already activated command centers, formulated policies, and coordinated communities. Many took action before there were any confirmed cases in their…


DeepTech: Where Engineering Meets Deep Science
The Synergetic Convergence of AI, Data Science, & Advanced Biomedicine

“When we get to the very, very small world-say circuits of seven atoms-we have a lot of new things that would happen that represent completely new opportunities for design. Atoms on a small scale behave like nothing on a large scale, for they satisfy the laws of quantum mechanics. So, as we go down and fiddle around with the atoms down there, we are working with different laws, and we can expect to do different things.”

Richard Feynman, PhD, December 29, 1959

On December…
