“The day healthcare can fully embrace AI is the day we have a revolution in terms of cutting costs and improving care.”–Fei-Fei Li
In part two of this 2-part series, Oriana Beaudet and Dan Pesut discuss a healthcare future that includes automation, artificial intelligence and robots. And what about potential disruptive futures that change everything?
“Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon.”
– Dag Hammarskjold
While many futures are generalists, there is a need for foresight professionals centered on specific fields, as well. Perhaps no area is more in need of innovative outlooks for the future than healthcare. With rising costs, aging populations and personnel shortages, the challenges are many. But so are the opportunities to employ emerging technologies. In the first part of a two part series, host Mark Sackler discusses these challenge with two nursing Ph.D.’s, Oriana Beaudet and Dan Pesut. Part One addresses the need for foresight both in nursing specifically and healthcare in general, as well as the global challenges of an aging population. Part two will drill down to individual ssues, including automation, robotics and artificial intelligence as caregiving tools for the future.
A new space race is upon us. But unlike the two-way competion days of the 1960’s and early 1970’s, it is now a multi-player competition to dominate and exploit the final frontier.
Where does NASA sit in all of this, in the rapidly changing world of the second space race?

In our myopic, short-term minded society, how do we start to take a long view of the future? In Seeking Delphi™ episode #34, host Mark Sacckler chats with Frank Spencer, founder and creative director at Kedge, The Futures School, about what he does, and how he teaches about the future.
Disruption. It’s a term that’s frequently on the lips of just about anyone interested in technology. Is it the technology, though, that’s disruptive? Or is it the individuals that are driving the technology? Maybe all of us who latch on to the technologies are the disruptors.
I think it’s all three. In the latest Seeking Delphi™ podcast, I speak with fellow podcaster, Matt Ward. He’s an entrepreneur, angel investor, and host of The Disruptors. In a kind of dueling podcasts, we interviewed each other for our respective programs.
If we could prevent the diseases of aging, we could prevent aging itself. We could empower “older” people to work like younger people for as long as they want to–if they want to. In this Seeking Delphi™ special edition mini-cast, Life Extension Advocacy Foundation (LEAF) presidnet Keith Comito joins host Mark Sackler to discuss the upcoming Ending-Age Releated Diseases conference, to be held July 11 and 12 at Cooper Union, New York, NY, USA. The biggest names in ending research will be there to present, including Aubrey de Grey of SENS Foundation and George Church of Rejuvenate Bio and Harvard University.
