Future of medical work: The computer will see you now
Qualcomm, the No. 1 smartphone chipmaker, has created a $10 million prize for the developers who can come up with a consumer health scanner most closely resembling the tricorder device of Star Trek fame. The competition attracted 34 teams from nine countries, according to the San Diego-based company, which is making several big bets on wireless health technologies. The 10 finalists of the Tricorder XPrize will present their ideas in August.
