Making predictions is fun. I was a huge baseball fan growing up. There was nothing quite like chatting with my dad and my friends, crunching basic statistics and watching games, reading scouting reports, and finally, expressing my opinion on what would happen (the Braves would win the World Series) and why things were happening (Manny Ramirez was on a hot streak because he was facing inexperienced left-handed pitchers). I was always right...unless I was wrong.*

Healthcare drives people mad. There’s nothing neutral or uncontroversial about it. Politicians argue about it, countries overspend on it, citizens fret about it. Providers walk a fine line between providing quality care for the sake of positive patient outcomes, while routinely being incentivized to package quantity over quality. Insurers are customer-focused corporations trying to provide a universal good, while also acting as “rational players” seeking to line their pockets.

After all, as the cabaret of politics, insurers, lobbyists and pharmaceutical companies spins and twirls, what some people keep seeming to forget is that healthcare is inherently about the patient. And at some point in our lives, to better our existences and our enjoyment of life, we’re all patients.

The exploitation of data in the business world demands a new data-driven approach to innovation. Human-driven data analysis needs to make way for new machine-driven methods capable of handling access to the new abundance of data. However, much hysteria has been recently directed at the dangers of big data and over-reliance on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Is this fear warranted, or is it just much ado about nothing?

Fantasy football: where owning a sports franchise is within anyone’s reach, a year of pride is put on the line, and grown adults cry…more than once…almost every Sunday. Yet for many football fans, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Except for you, Reggie Bush. 550 total yards…FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YARDS?!? I COULD JOG BACKWARDS FOR MOR—let’s move on.
