    IBM Watson is the World’s Best Problem Solver 

    It’s almost inevitable that IBM Watson will be used to solve big problems across multiple fields both effectively and efficiently: http://www.ibm.com/smarterplanet/us/en/ibmwatson/

    Instead of problem solving manually, I think it’s best to apply technology like this to testing out solutions to every major challenge.

    Read Books Manually vs IBM Watson/Wolfram Alpha Automation 

    Since human memory is inferior to computer intelligence, why read an entire book to retain knowledge? One year after the fact, we can probably recall less than 1% of all written materials we’ve read.

    Computers will read and summarize books for you.

    We will use a wolfram alpha type of tool combined with the horsepower of the IBM watson machine to condense any book into the relevant parts you are looking for.

    If you’re looking to understand a concept, hypothetically computers should also be superior at explaining connections.

    Essentially, humans will want to inevitably merge with a high speed internet enabled computer through an interface like Google Glass.

    If you wanted to learn how to do a complicated task like build an electric car or spaceship, it would be far better to have a real-time guide like Google Glass show you exactly how to proceed.

    Relying on human memory alone is holding back humanity.

    Immigration and Technological Advancement 

    Countries that are welcoming to educated/hard working immigrants will be positioned to advance technologically sooner.

    Entrepreneurs/scientists are sometimes limited in their countries of origin or the regulatory environment is not conducive to business.

    For example, Elon Musk moved to Canada from South Africa. By performing well in a Canada University, he had a track record to relocate to a US school. I think he mentioned that it was challenging to get into the US directly. Now both Solar City and Tesla contribute to worldwide prosperity by helping people use cleaner energy sources. SpaceX is also helping America have one of the best space programs.

    Wanted: Biotech Entrepreneurs 

    I’m looking to assist up to 5 biotech entrepreneurs per month with the following:

    1. Fundraising – through debt, private and/or public sources
    2. Scaling up
    3. Strategy management
    4. Relocating
    5. Legal referrals and recommendations regarding favorable jurisdictions (verify someone licensed though)
    6. Human resources/hiring talent

    I’ll provide a free consultation if you send me a message through LinkedIn.

    I think there are major opportunities for entrepreneurs in this field

    to improve the quality of life for billions of people. It will also provide me an

    opportunity to learn what some of the best entrepreneurs are working on

    and consider potential ongoing relationships.
