Healthcare moves slowly because it relies on outdated models for knowledge discovery. Relative to high tech, the biomedical sciences are messy and evolve slowly because of challenges around collecting, analyzing, and interpreting the data. For example, many disease definitions are arbitrary, limited by the tools originally used to discover them. Treatment identification is equally limited by how we evaluate their efficacy. I get most excited by machine learning technologies that give us better eyes to see.
