In this eighth episode, Ben Hwang, Chairman & CEO of Profusa, provides an overview of injectable biosensors. He explains that the technology enables a model akin to getting a blood test every few seconds of our life (rather than only every few years when sick).

For what’s already underway, there’s no existing community, event or even established industry category. Yet it represents a strikingly positive future and opportunity of health, computing and consumer technologies. I see it as on the same scale as the arrival of the personal computer.
We may be clouded in seeing it yet because of the tendency to see the new in terms of the old, in the same way that trains were initially seen as a way of pulling canal boats. It’s not “digital health”, or “quantified self”, but is closely related, it is not “wearables” or “mobile”, although it’s the positive future of...
