    A “high tech” journey through 2020.

    in Business

    Moore’s law states that computer capacity doubles every 18 months.  Consider this – in 1993 I met Jim Sewell who ran a company called Bayes Corp.  His background was Military Intelligence.   He explained that 20 years earlier, in 1973, when Patty Hearst was kidnapped those searching for her approached him to see if he could use technology to help find her.

    After spending time to consider the possibilities he reported back – that he couldn’t find her but he could find everyone in America who was just like her.  This was 41 years ago – and he was working with very limited technology by today’s standards.

    Today’s guest is another Jim – James Speer.  He is a Ph.D. and a J.D.  He’s spent 24 years in academic medicine and has worked for a McKesson-sponsored consortium led by Harvard University School of Public Health and Duke University School of Medicine researchers.
