Today, more often than is acceptable, a required antibiotic or chronic disease drug cannot be delivered on time. What will happen tomorrow when personalized medicine – tailored for one or a small patient group – must be secured?
The experts speak.
Dr. Josef Packowski, CAMELOT Consulting Group: “Detective Del Spooner: ‘You are just a machine. An imitation of life. Can a robot write a symphony?’ Sonny: ‘Can you?’” (I, Robot – 2004 film)
Julian Amey, WMG: “Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man…Better… stronger…faster.” (The Six Million Dollar Man, adapted in 1973 from Martin Caidin’s novel Cyborg into  made-for-TV movies followed by a TV series on ABC Network 1974 – 1978 plus  made-for-TV movies 1987 – 1994)
Jack Schmidt, SAP: “…one of my mantras–focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” (Steve jobs)
