The Future You: How Artificial Intelligence Can Help You Get Healthier, Stress Less, and Live Longer by Harry Glorikian
“AI is all around us. Self-driving cars. Smart personal assistants-think Siri, Cortana, or Google Now-or Alexa, Amazon’s cloud-based voice service that is available on literally hundreds of millions of devices. Voice-to-text. Manufacturing robots. Facial recognition software. Security surveillance. Automated financial investing and social media monitoring. Smart homes that control themselves when their owners are out of town. The list is endless.
“All of the above make life easier for us. But in this new book by Moneyball Medicine author/podcaster Harry Glorikian, the spotlight is on how AI can (and will, and in many cases already does) make us healthier.”
-from the Foreword to The Future You by Dr. Bob Arnot
Do you have a smartphone and a wearable device, such as an Apple Watch or a Fitbit? Most likely yes, right? Well, then, as Glorikian tells us, there are already numerous apps available for download that ” … can also continuously monitor temperature, calorie intake, blood glucose, menstruation cycle, respiration rate, stress levels, brain waves, or just about any other aspect of physical and mental health you want.” They identify areas where improvement is needed, and tell us how to improve our health in those areas.
