Multiscale Digital Models of Human Biology, Turning Health into a Hard Science – EP12: Jeff Kaditz (Q Bio)

In this twelfth episode, Jeff Kaditz, Founder/CEO of Q Bio begins with coronavirus chat. He goes on to explain that most medical knowledge today is probably incorrect or heavily biased. That there’s almost nothing a doctor does that couldn’t have been done 200 years ago in terms of the information.

He presents his vision to run ‘search engines for the body’ and turn healthcare into hard science.

Topics we discussed in this episode
  • Coronavirus possibly a once in a hundred year pandemic unfolding
  • Present confusion around the impact of coronavirus
  • Home tests for coronavirus
  • Need for an analytics platform for measuring change in the human body
  • Human health is more of a long tail distribution than a normal distribution
  • Absurdity that we reduce complicated diseases to a single variable measured at a single point in time
  • Applying modern information theory and data science to understanding human health
  • Physical exam of the future gathers genetic, chemical and structural information
  • Building a healthcare system that actually gets better and more efficient over time
  • Transforming healthcare and health into hard science and an information science
  • Getting to the point of being able to test body hypotheticals
  • Envisioning a triage layer in front of the existing primary care system
  • Building the ultimate clinical decision support tool for the future
  • Clinical studies are flawed
  • The more people that have lived, the better we should be at understanding what’s going on in our bodies
  • Age of the digitization of biology
  • Lab assays bake the query into the assay
  • In the near future the query becomes software, not the actual physical process of gathering information
  • Will become feasible and cheap to just measure everything about the human body on some regular interval
  • Healthcare will truly become a pure information science
  • Most medical knowledge today is probably incorrect and it’s probably heavily biased
  • Need to take multi-scale measurements like physics does
  • No reason why we shouldn’t be able to stay as young as we want indefinitely
  • Body is an entropy fighting system which eventually loses the battle
  • The end goal should be getting to more proactive or preventative medicine
  • In the future we will know why we got sick
