Google Wants to Define the Healthy Human

This is probably not the only feature of life they are trying to catergorise, but what will come of this collection of data? The software suite known as, study kit will collect data from IOS apps and android plus chrome extensions.

‘Google hopes that the information gleaned from the project will both help medical professionals diagnose and treat diseases such as cancer, and enable a shift toward preventing health issues, rather than trying to cure them. The first stages of the trial began last summer, and involved the collection of urine and tears from 175 participants. Study participants will also be subjected to more detailed diagnostics, having their weight and blood pressure measured, and their genetic and molecular data sequenced.’
