Four For Friday | March 19, 2023
LF31 | Health-focused Best Buy, harnessing GPT to save time, innovative staff housing and Rejuve - a triple threat of longevity, blockchain and AI!
Welcome to a Looking Forward’s Four For Friday. Four links that have piqued my interest this week relating to Web3, healthy longevity and / or impact. Bit delayed due to work commitments this week - so Friday’s coming out on Sunday. Anyway, enjoy!
Best Buy doubling down on healthcare
Here’s a list of the four health systems they’re partnering with. In their earnings call, they apparently said they see more growth in their new health business than in their consumer electronics business.
Nabla harnessing GPT for patient care
French healthtech startup Nabla is using GPT to help doctors be more efficient in managing their patients. It’s helping them summarise patient conversations and provider faster outreach on the boring admin tasks - exactly the kind of ‘centaur skills’ that are needed - make humans more efficient and able to focus on patient care not admin.
Nursing home with staff housing built in
I love this idea in New England for a Green House-style development that includes subsidized accommodation for staff. This harks back to the early days of the Industrial Revolution when companies like Cadbury’s decided they needed to look after their employees and give them high quality subisidized on-site accommodation.
Rejuve.ai bills itself as ‘the decentralized AI powered longevity network’ (a perfect fit for this newsletter!). This project, backed by SingularityNET promises to allow you to ‘measure and track your longevity and improve your healthspan while earning RJV tokens, redeemable for discounts on supplements, medical tests, longevity therapies and more”. In essence it’s developing a way to incentivize people to share their longevity-related data by getting rewarded for it in tokens. Will watch with interest.
That’s all for this week. As always, feedback welcome. Feel free to share insights or links of interest.
