Ultra Perceptual Medicine
Imaging complex medical knowledge through a high resolution hyperdimensional medical infoscope
For the past 20 years the MMVR community has embraced several emerging technologies and guided them to evolve from their science fiction roots to become commonly used tools in medicine. Currently increases in both the volume and velocity of information creation necessitates the development of new tools to extend human perception to aid our efforts to understand and exploit this information in medically meaningful ways. In the spirit of embracing new ideas for addressing challenging problems the concept of ultra perceptual medicine will be introduced. Preliminary efforts using a high resolution hyperdimensional medical infoscope, designed to enable perceptualization of complexity and trans-discipline knowledge fusion, will be shared and discussed.
in new domains of emerging data
attempts to grapple with the problem of exponential information creation
developing new methods for perceptual fusion of multi discipline data
extending the concept of visualization to one of experiential perceptualization
perceptual engineering is enabling experiential exploration
hyper dimensional infoscope
highly resolved medical information
the mind is bigger than big data... we just need to help our brains grok it all
whereas a telescope lets you see things that are far away and a microscope lets you see things that are really small and info scope lets you see... information...
technology has helped us extend our senses into a range of physical / temporal scales from the biggest objects in the vastness of space to the most infinitesimal objects in existence...
from bosons to quasars
developing an inclusive tool
what we know about what we know...
leveraging off of tools developed for the intelligence community and extending their functionality to be applicable to both the science and the practice of medical professions
this talk represents our humble and meager attempts to grapple with the problem of exponential information creation
imagine-ing vs imaging
time and space
structure and function
personal health data
big data... huge data .. colossal data immense data gigantic data epic data
traditional data types include various modalities of medical imaging , clinical labs, physiologic monitors
new classes of patient data
extending the tool to also include bibliomic data (from the scholarly journals), personal data gathered from the emerging array of personal health sensors and devices
physical scale ranges from molecular to genomic to cellular to tissue to oragan to person to family to society
complexity scales from simple single events to vast arrays of dynamically interconnected entities
embrace the new
bench marks … on the new bench
necessity to use your brain
so now what??? re new stuff
constants vs variables ,, patients vs simulators …
what do we know about how we know.
dont confuse what you can do with what can be done
technology changes physiology
public health … vs individual patient
imaging a dysfunctional family... ie.
what is a mole of bits... ??
emergence of a new medical speciality?? or a general capability
the “intent ome”
communicable disease vs --communications enabled disease
in patient data vs inpatient data
