In this episode of "Wait, What?" the guys discuss the impact technology has on medicine and medical procedures. Jason starts off the talk by discussing his grandmother's heart surgery, using a pig valve. This sparks a discussion about the advent of drones as a first responders and whether or not it is actually feasible. The guys then talk about their comfort level with a robot or artificial intelligence diagnosing a disease or performing a surgery versus interaction with a human doctor. A couple of other interesting technologies discussed include: Glucose sensing contact lenses for diabetics and wireless insulin pens.
The show is still going to attend Awesome Con in Washington, D.C. at the end of May and we're hoping to wrangle some of our favorite celebrities for interviews. Our next show will air on June 5. We'd LOVE for our audience to drive what we talk about on our next episode, so feel free to reach out to us with some ideas!
