Boston, July.― Need to lose a few
pounds? Toss and turn all night with insomnia? Curious about risk factors for
conditions like cancer or diabetes? As the saying goes, there’s an app for that
— lots of them, in fact — and these apps, either individually or combined with
wearable devices, can continuously monitor just about any aspect of physical
and mental health. Data-driven healthcare tech is here, and it has the power to
save lives if people know how to leverage it.

In his new book, The Future You: How Artificial
Intelligence (AI) Can Help You Get Healthier, Stress Less, and Live Longer,
biotech expert Harry Glorikian helps readers understand how to use technology
(that they very likely already have) to create personalized healthcare

“The scenarios I’m going to describe in this
book don’t just apply to someone with a rare condition or who is seriously
ill,” Glorikian writes in his book’s introduction. “These are examples of how
everyone can take advantage of AI and data analytics to stay healthy, get
diagnosed more quickly, and sometimes, save on healthcare costs.”

In The Future You, readers will discover

– The ways in which technology and AI are
already impacting healthcare and what new technologies are on the horizon

– The new healthcare business paradigm and how
to navigate it

– How AI is helping doctors diagnose different
cancers more precisely

– How everyday people have used smartphone and
smartwatch technology to reach their health and fitness goals — and sometimes
to survive a health crisis

– How to use and leverage AI data to improve
health in monumental ways

– How to use available tech to simplify
healthcare scenarios such as doctor visits, managing one’s own health records,
coping with chronic disease, broadening awareness about a specific genetic
profile and much more

– How scientists around the world used AI to
develop COVID vaccines and how AI will help scientists predict future outbreaks
more rapidly

Glorikian’s overarching message is clear:
There’s quite literally nothing about health and wellness that won’t be utterly
transformed by the power of AI. The Future You will show readers what’s coming
— and what is already here.

“I want readers to feel inspired to see how they
can use the technology they already have to make changes in their lives,”
Glorikian says. “Maybe it’s as simple as using your smartphone to count your
daily steps. Or maybe it’s downloading a meal-tracking app or doing a virtual
reality workout. This book can be a roadmap to personalized health and wellness
for everyone.”
