All Turtles Podcast Episode 34: Livongo’s Glen Tullman & Dr. Jennifer Schneider

People with chronic conditions dedicate a great deal of cognitive overhead to monitoring their own health. Type 2 diabetes patients, for example, have to constantly think about when to eat, what type of exercise to do, and when to take medication. Livongo is a company that aims to change that. For patients with type 2 diabetes, Livongo takes their blood glucose levels and provides actionable recommendations based on that data. It’s another example of how AI and tech are revolutionizing healthcare.

Listener question (24:56)

From Jacob via the email: In the example of self-driving cars, how do we prevent the onboard sensors from being spoofed into thinking they’re on a safe country road, when they’re actually driving off a cliff into the ocean? Could blockchain help us keep these sensors and the software from being corrupted? If not, what makes it a bad fit? What are the emerging/existing technologies that would be a better fit?
