Is Google Home a Trojan Horse in Healthcare?
In this study, recently-diagnosed diabetes patients were asked to use the technology to have "heart to heart" conversations with Alexa about what they want their friends and family to understand about their disease and what they are going through. The researchers found that patients were having genuine, meaningful conversations with Alexa about their disease, but the downside was that Alexa still sounds very robotic, which raised the question of whether or not Alexa or other voice-assisted technologies need to sound more human in order to have these types of conversations with patients and have the same impact? &...

You Asked: What Is Inflammation, And Why Should I Care About It?
Your body can heal itself, which is pretty miraculous when you sit back and think about it. If you suffer a cut or infection—or if a disease, allergen or virus finds its way into you—your immune system reacts by sending specialized white blood cells to the affected area. These white blood cells can repair damage, stop the spread of infection or illness and in some cases eradicate the intruder. This whole response is called inflammation. “Inflammation is an activation of cells and cell-derived components that have the job of fighting invasions, and in some cases just sponging up or clearing out damaged cel...
