AI expert says you have nothing to fear from tape recorders, Apple watch to replace cardiologists, Hackers live rent-free in health care’s head - Digital Pulse


The latest health care technology news.

AI expert says you have nothing to fear from tape recorders

A theoretical physicist told CNN that you have nothing to fear from AI, as it is just a tape recorder. But don’t worry, quantum computing is on the horizon, and it will be even more powerful, possibly pushing us into the age of the compact disc. So hang on to those Barry Manilow CDs, as they might be needed by AI to solve world hunger.

Apple watch to replace cardiologists

Media reports state that Apple will launch the Watch X version of its Apple watch next year or in 2025 that will feature a built-in blood pressure monitor. Rumors say that for an extra fee, the watch will allegedly also tell you to stop smoking and exercise more, and premium users can perform open-heart surgery on themselves using an Apple-exclusive scalpel.

Hackers live rent-free in health care’s head

A new report from IBM shows that cybercriminals can’t seem to shake their addiction of hacking into health care organizations. And why not when the results are so lucrative? The bad news for health care organizations is that the average cost of a breach is now $4.45 million and that they continue to lead all other industries. How long before it’s cheaper to go back to paper and make the fax machine work overtime?
