I just wanted to get your guys' take on something. With new advances in AI, life extension science, the hype surrounding Google's new company Calico, etc. it's becoming generally accepted medicine is evolving into an information technology field and will eventually be much more automated. But I haven't seen a lot of info out there about how medical schools and the profession intends to adapt. Will there be new specialties that are more computational and technical? Will STEM degrees eventually be a prerequisite for med schools? Also, are there any medical specialties today that are playing a major part in advancing medical technology, maybe interventional rads?
