Tesla’s big announcement on batteries has the potential to shape the future of electric cars

It’s the latest innovation push by the Silicon Valley car builder that has aimed to rewrite the rules on electric vehicles, making them performance-oriented and aspirational in a way that has eluded competitors. But electric vehicles constitute a small slice of the overall car market, and to expand, Tesla will need to reign supreme over not only the manufacturing of vehicles but also their lifeblood: batteries.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk took the stage Tuesday to announce plans for tackling that issue at a widely anticipated “Battery Day” event. Unlike at the company’s glitzy Cybertruck unveiling in Los Angeles last year, there was no blockbuster product announcement and no definitive hardware breakthrough.

Tesla instead sought to set its future agenda, headlined by its goal to build a $25,000 mass-market electric car — a niche its long-promised $35,000 Model 3 sedan failed to fill.

The yet-unnamed offering would see its lower price

Future of CGM Technology Looks Bright

Individuals with diabetes, whether its type 1 or type 2, must check their blood sugar regularly to keep that and their A1c levels monitored and under control.

Some patients test once a day, some more than 6 times a day. Pricking their fingers many times, can present a challenge for patients. Some have issues with compliance and remembering to test, some are scared of the pain from finger pricking, and others have trouble arranging their daily activities and chores around testing their blood sugar levels and managing the disease.

In recent years, many improvements have occurred in terms of testing blood sugars. It started in the 1800s when there were attempts to quantify glucose levels in the urine. This created the basis for testing blood sugars for patients with diabetes. In 1908, for the first time, the Benedict urine glucose copper reagent was developed, becoming the go-to test for next

The future of rideshare is a remote control rental car

In rideshare, the single largest cost per trip is the driver. It turns out the vast majority of trips have a second driver in every car: a rider with a license.

Imagine a future in which a rental car is as convenient as an Uber at half the price. More specifically, imagine an on-demand, door-to-door rental car (let’s call it an ODDcar for short).

Here’s how it would work:

  1. You hail a car just as you would an Uber or a Lyft
  2. Within minutes, an empty car pulls up to you curbside
  3. Instead of getting into the backseat, you take the wheel
  4. You drive yourself directly to your destination
  5. The empty car departs

How do you get the empty car to and from the rider? Full autonomy will of course answer that question but in a decade or more. In the meantime, we’ll need to rely on remote control —

How to protect the U.S. from climate change, future pandemics

There have been almost 200,000 deaths in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic. And now, wildfires raging across the Western seaboard have killed dozens, burned over 3.6 million acres of land and over 6,400 structures. Residents have been cooped up inside to avoid polluted air.

This is a crisis that even the titans of technology and innovation say they’re not able to fix on their own.

What the U.S. needs is for the federal government to spend more money on science, according to several billionaire tech leaders. 

“Let’s imagine a future pandemic — I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there will certainly be one. And let’s imagine that a global competitor, such as China, not only invents the solution, but keeps it to themselves,” former Google CEO Eric Schmidt wrote in a Medium blog post on September 14, published alongside his new podcast, Reimagine

Mayo’s Chief Digital Officer: The hospital of the future isn’t just about technology

Technologists conjure up images of the hospital of the future as a network of connected devices, automated systems and virtual visits. While all these innovations are important, Rita Khan said planning for the future of healthcare should go beyond technology alone.

“I think there are a lot of opportunities to step back and not just think about interesting technologies that can be applied,” she said at MedCity INVEST’s virtual conference. “I think care delivery itself will change significantly over the next 10 years.”

Khan was named Mayo Clinic’s first chief digital officer in December. Though Mayo Clinic was no slouch when it comes to technology, Khan was tasked with building solutions that lead to a better consumer experience.

For instance, she’s interested in remote patient monitoring and remote diagnostics. But more broadly, she sees an important opportunity to improve the patient experience and take a more holistic look at care,
