Coriell Institute for Medical Research Spin-Out Wants to be the Bank Where Doctors Can Stash Your Genome | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Genomic sequencing might be more common in medicine if doctors had a simple way to send for the test and keep track of the data.

That’s the hope of Coriell Life Sciences in Camden, New Jersey, a startup that grew out of a partnership between the Coriell Institute for Medical Research and IBM. The company wants to facilitate the process of ordering, storing, and interpreting whole-genome-sequence data for doctors.

Should You Reinvent An Industry As A Business Idea?

Should You Reinvent An Industry As A Business Idea? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
No one has ever come up with a business idea entirely by themselves. Mark Zuckerberg revolutionized social media with Facebook, but Facebook was not even the first large social media website. The Bessemer process which made steel magnate Andrew Carnegie rich had been experimented with by other developers in the past, and every successful businessman’s innovations has almost certainly practiced to some degree by someone else.

Why a Robot-Filled Education Future May Not Be as Scary as You Think

Why a Robot-Filled Education Future May Not Be as Scary as You Think | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The robots are coming, and some of them are charming. That was my reaction on a recent visit to Singularity University, when I met two robots named Pris and Pepper. Even though her “brain” was turned off when I met Pris, she was still able to sit on the floor, cock her head, blink, and follow my words and my body with her head. At times, she would even blink with a tinge of pink in her eyes. The effect was uncanny, engaging, and almost flirtatious.

What are digital social innovations?

What are digital social innovations? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
One of the problems that we encounter in our research on digital social innovation (DSI) is related with defining it. Is it a catch-all phrase? A combination of three trendy words? Digital social innovations (DSI) are often associated with positive meanings, like openness, collaboration or inclusion, as opposed to more commercially oriented innovations. In trying to define such a contested concept as digital social innovation, we should strive to disentangle it from its positive aura.

How Disruptive Innovation Can Finally Revolutionize Healthcare | Innosight | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The discussion around reforming healthcare tends to focus on progress the industry makes against prescribed numbers—lowering the rate of the uninsured, boosting productivity, and improving metrics around new payment models. While these high-level measurements are important for tracking performance, they distract from the understanding of the true causal mechanism of how industries become more affordable and accessible.

The 4 Types of Innovation and the Problems They Solve

One of the best innovation stories I’ve ever heard came to me from a senior executive at a leading tech firm. Apparently, his company had won a million-dollar contract to design a sensor that could detect pollutants at very small concentrations underwater. It was an unusually complex problem, so the firm set up a team of crack microchip designers, and they started putting their heads together.
