Dr. Eric Topol M.D. is a Physician-Scientist, Author, Editor and is The Gary & Mary West Endowed Chair of Innovative Medicine, and the Executive VP, Scripps Research.

We discussed the meaning of life, ways for Artificial Intelligence to improve patient outcomes…and concomitantly, benefit physicians too. We explored the ethical imperatives incumbent on doctors— is it ok to exaggerate medical benefits/risks to incentivize greater patient participation. We closed with his concerns about Elon Musk's long-term space travel from a medical perspective, including his thoughts on the Kelly twin astronaut study.

Dr. Topol's research is on individualized medicine, using the genome and digital technologies to understand each person at the biologic, physiologic granular level to determine appropriate therapies and prevention. An example is the use of pharmacogenomics and his research on clopidogrel (Plavix). By determining the reasons for why such a large proportion of people do not respond to this medication, we can use alternative treatment strategies to prevent blood clots.

In his latest book, Deep Medicine, Dr. Topol explores how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In Deep Medicine, Dr. Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help.
