Very nice to talk with you this morning at Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds, and thank you for your excellent presentation - http://med.stanford.edu/
seminars/medicine/ eventDetails.do?semid=122336 . It would be great to talk further about the implications of your talk in terms of physician wellness online even and especially with regards to potential online CC Medical Schools with online Teaching Hospitals in all ~200 countries' official languages. Thank you.

Very nice to talk with you this morning at Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds, and thank you.
Here's the brief video I mentioned about how the blockchain ledger works for health care -
watch?v=AeoYOyqOZ00 - partly focusing on patient-centric data, financial and anonymity questions (accessible with many further health related ideas here - https://scott-macleod. blogspot.com/2017/08/ continental-shelf-blockchain- for-health.html and here https://scott-macleod. blogspot.com/2017/08/ subduction-gros-morne-canada- blockchain.html).
In terms of A.I. (i.e. artificial intelligence and machine learning) and health care, the blockchain ledger will probably be central. But it may well emerge together with a CryptoCurrency (where MIT's CryptoCurrency project, for example, seems to in a key position). In terms of AI and the digital humanities (where you mentioned the possibility of you and I meeting to talk further), and, say, patient care and even in terms of online CC Medical Schools with online Teaching Hospitals in all ~200 countries' official languages+, I wonder how the human aspect of medicine (e.g. the satisfaction via patient care/healing for medical doctors) will emerge online in these regards. And I hypothesize that AI avatar bots will even come to play a role in medicine - viz MIT's Cynthia Breazeal's on personal robotics and Kate Darling's work on robotics and affect (perhaps in something like Google Hangouts/Streetview/Maps/Earth with time slider and group build-able, in all 7,099 living languages) where the people/physicians in the video conferencing might develop into avatar bots with time and re Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds' recent talk on Project ECHO by Dr. Sanjeev Arora, for example (with its mentoring, bringing specialist MDs to rural/remote people/populations, and its video-conferencing approach to the practice of clinical medicine).
In terms of the electronic healthcare record (EHR?) system mentioned in today's Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds (i.e. EPIC - https://www.epic.com/software & http://ycci.yale.edu/news/
newsletter/ winter2014newsletter/epic.aspx , about which I know very little but which seems to have reached %54 of the US medical records - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Epic_Systems - but with no mention of the other ~200 nation states or their languages, or even access to health in these countries), AI, the blockchain ledger, a CryptoCurrency and online medicine (CC OCW-centric medical schools), clinical care (teaching hospitals) and research, will also probably all be central.
While there are many possible approaches to AI, machine learning, and the digital humanities, CONCEPTUALLY the approach I mentioned to you this morning of a film/video CONVERSION APPLICATION/PROGRAM into 3D interactive virtual avatar bots (for AI coding, design and avatar/actual robotics too) and in a realistic virtual earth (Google Streetview/Google Brain centric, for research too at the cellular and atomic levels) has much merit (and as a building block for what I'm calling ethno-wiki-virtual-world-
graphy). The human component of medicine (as characterized in the humanity of your books - http://abrahamverghese.com/ home/books/ - for example) will emerge online, and be study-able, as will all(?) other aspects of the human experience and of human history - as human interaction also develops online - thus making a focus on it from a Stanford Medicine perspective very important. Stanford AI and the digital humanities as a growth field (worldwide) will also complement remarkably Stanford Medicine's and Stanford's other approaches to AI and machine learning - and potentially in many languages.
When might be a good time to talk together about some of this in person, Abraham? And would you consider please becoming a Board member of the emerging startup WUaS Corporation (planned in all ~200 countries and in all 7,099 living languages), which also seeks to support with educational services many aspects of AI and Medicine above? The potential for studying new ways to improve physician satisfaction and reduce MD burnout are also enormous here.

Dear Bob H.,
Thanks so much for meeting with me this morning at Stanford Medicine, and concerning Stanford Medicine and World University and School Medicine (where World University and School is like CC MIT OpenCourseWare in 7 languages with CC Wikipedia in 295 languages).
As you suggested, it would be great to talk further with Stanford's Dr. C.P. about developing together online:
- Medical Schools for online MD degrees, in all ~200 countries' official languages (perhaps beginning with online PA degrees)
- Medicine OpenCourseWare (potentially CC-4 licensed and paralleling CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare in its 7 languages+ - which CC World University and School is planning to accredit upon for online free CC OCW-centric Bachelor, Ph.D., Law, and MD as well as IB high school degrees in all ~200 countries' official languages).
- Teaching Hospitals in all ~200 countries' official languages and even for developing online robotic surgery, for example, as well as for a) rural, b) space, c) ship and d) wilderness medicine, perhaps building on Dr. Sanjeev Arora's Project Echo (for 140 diseases, mentoring and rural populations - per his recent Stanford Grand Rounds).
- and again re collaboration between Stanford Medicine and World University and School Medicine.
Would it be possible please to talk further with Dr. Prober about this?
Thank you again so much for our meeting!

Dear Bob (and A),
I'm writing to follow up with you about this email which you invited me to send to you last week, Bob, when we met after Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds. Thank you again so very much for meeting and talking.
I'm also including an email below which I sent to Abraham earlier today, also after Stanford Grand Rounds, re AI (i.e. artificial intelligence and machine learning with machine translation), Humanities and Digital Health/Medical Care, which might be of interest to you - and concerning the further potentials of Stanford Medicine exploring developing online medical schools and teaching hospitals in all ~200 countries' official languages, potentially with CC OpenCourseWare and online teaching hosptials - and re a growth perspective for Stanford Medicine helping so many people with highest quality education and care around the world.
Part of the AI and health care project, which I didn't mention to Abraham in my email this morning, is World University and School's plans to facilitate and code for an Universal Basic Income for all 7.5 billion people (importantly informing related databases) and with a focus on all ~200 nation states as the units around which to organize financially and data-wise - and which would also be significant for reimbursement of the educational costs of online free CC OpenCourseWare medical degrees in all ~200 countries' official languages.
Thank you so much again for our meeting last week. I think the projects I emailed you about would be a remarkably great growth opportunity for Stanford Medicine in a so many ways.
