Today we’re joined by Eric Topol, Director & Founder of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, and author of the book Deep Medicine. 

Eric is also one of the most trusted voices on the COVID-19 pandemic, giving those that follow his Twitter account (link) daily updates on the disease and its impact, from both a biological and public health perspective. We had the pleasure of catching up with Eric to talk through several Coronavirus-related topics, including what we’ve learned since the pandemic began and the role of technology—including ML and AI—in understanding and preventing the spread of the disease. We also explore the broader opportunity for medical applications of AI, the promise they offer for personalized medicine, and how techniques like federated learning and homomorphic encryption can offer more privacy in healthcare.
