      At certain points in time a revolution occurs. Three critical areas are progressing rapidly nearly every day. Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, and Brain Tech. This decade will see these progress to make medtech the next big revolution. You can already see the trend starting with ‘wearables’. Medtech is the next big thing.

      A less significant revolution occurred in tech in the 2000s. Virtually no one in 1999/2001 could envisage what occurred up to 2010/2011 where you had all the world's information at your fingertips and could connect with anyone on the planet in so many ways.

      That Stanford depression breakthrough is astonishing. Five days to remission for severe refractory depression. Would you not agree?

      There is no "cure" for almost anything.

      There are treatments.

      It's just a misused term.

      The only way to cure a body (return it to original state and reverse the damage) is through natural means if those natural means are strong enough to enable cure.

      Medicine will not cure anything in the next 100 years.

      I am sure effective treatments that reduce symptoms or improve damage can be made.

      When something goes wrong in the body, millions of thing are affected. Some kind of external intervention won't address all those things affected i.e. curing is impossible - but some things affected can be treated.

      I agree, the problem before was we were limited by what humans can do, now we have machine learning and the ability to process and analyze data at unimaginable rates.

      Sounds good. I hope it lasts for them. I could do with a bit of that right now!

      I'm good with having an AI in my brain. The monthly subscription to stop the tinnitus is going to be a real downer though. ;)

      ;)

      Neurolink was on Bloomberg TV (stock channel) about how they are hiring a clinical officer to work with the FDA. They said a few hundred thousand people already have chips in their brain to combat strokes, etc...

      Yes and how many more have pacemakers in their heart, etc.

      Not controversial but progressive. Neuralink remains a great source of hope to us.

      In general it is wonderful to see so many different avenues that may lead to effective treatment or even a cure for tinnitus.
