Visionary: We will live longer
My prediction is that within 10 years, we will have a predictive medicine that will have two separate components. (Leroy Hood, Institute for Systems Biology)
No. 1, it will have the ability to sequence every human's genome for less than $1,000. We will be able to make predictive health histories for each individual from the varying genes that come from that sequencing.
No. 2, we will have a little hand-held nanotechnology device that will prick your finger and make a thousand measurements and by wireless, send that to a server. It will analyze all your past records.
It will say, "Nothing's changed. You're fine. Do it again in six months." Or it will say, "Go see your oncologist or go see your rheumatologist" or whoever might be appropriate.
