Thank you for your edifying talk at the University of California, San Francisco, yesterday - "Improving Health in the Era of Ubiquitous Information: The Role of Health Policy" ... https://calendar.ucsf.edu/
event/2018_ucsf_chancellors_ health_policy_lecture_given_ by_robert_m_califf_md_macc - and it was very nice to meet and talk with you afterward. I was particularly interested in learning more about Verily and Project Baseline in your talk - for example, that they have a data focus at the molecular / atomic level was new to me, and exciting to learn. I'm writing partly to follow up in particular re your role as Advisor at Verily's Project Baseline, partly to let you know about World University and School and our online medical schools with online teaching hospitals for clinical care planned in each of all ~200 countries' official/main languages, and partly to inquire about further possible collaborations in a variety of ways. I also want to mention WUaS's focus on creating an interactive realistic virtual earth - think Google Street View with time slider / Maps / Earth / Brain etc. - and at the cellular and atomic levels too. This latter project would potentially allow every medical device - which you mentioned a need for - to be monitored providing measurements, etc., on every person as unique device and individual at all times.
You'll find the beginning World Univ & Sch online medical school and teaching hospital for clinical care in English here - https://wiki.
worlduniversityandschool.org/ wiki/World_University_Medical_ School and https://wiki. worlduniversityandschool.org/ wiki/Hospital - and the IDEA for online medical schools with online teaching hospitals for clinical care here -https://scott-macleod. blogspot.com/2018/02/lithops- collaboration-between- stanford.html - and, at some point in the future, online clinical care could also emerge out of Project ECHO (see blog entry) and a Project Baseline-into-3D-interactive- avatar-bots at the street view, cellular and atomic levels too - and for bio-engineering and machine-learning brain research (which I also write about in this blog post). In my own research, I continue to focus on the correspondence between the ACTUAL and the VIRTUAL, and see this as a remarkable opportunity for clinical medicine and research too - and re World Univ & Sch's online medical schools / hospitals.
At a key moment in developing World Univ & Sch's new wiki, WUaS not only seeks to plan and code for learners / Universitians in reach of all ~200 countries' official languages, and in all 7,097 living languages, but also PLAN for all 7.5 billion people on the planet - and, for example, in planning for online clinical trials in all 7k languages - https://wiki.
worlduniversityandschool.org/ wiki/Clinical_Trials_at_WUaS_( for_all_languages).
Much data wrangling - https://twitter.com/
califf001/status/ 981538220495093760 - would be involved indeed if one included PLANNING for health data for all 7.5 billion people (which WUaS is).
You may have seen these Stanford-centric videos about Project Baseline already, but in case you haven't here's the Chief Medical Officer of Verily, Jessica Mega, speaking about Project Baseline at Stanford recently -

https://youtu.be/RNO31qBJs7I (accessible from
blogspot.com/2018/03/caracal- stanford-medicine-and-online. html). Stanford Chair of Medicine Bob Harrington has told me that both Duke and Stanford are focusing Project Baseline medically with 1000 subjects each, I think.
In what ways, Rob, could World University and School become a growth story for Project Baseline in your role as Advisor - and in each of all ~200 countries' official languages? And in what ways might Duke and World University and School collaborate as a kind of growth opportunity - particularly in terms of other countries and other languages (and re cultural questions especially)?
Please give my warm greetings to Drs. Chris Granger MD, and John Alexander MD in cardiology at Duke. Both are old friends (from Cuttyhunk, and Christmas dinners in Pittsburgh, PA).
Thank you again for your illuminating talk at UCSF, and looking forward to further communication about these opportunities.
In World University and School's CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare-centricity in its 5 languages, WUaS seeks to become the Harvard / MIT / Oxbridge of the Internet - again in all ~200 countries' official languages. Thanks again, and very nice to meet you.

It's no exaggeration to say that Project Baseline, which will monitor 10,000 participants nationwide, is offering a "unique contribution to mankind." It's easily the largest #publichealth effort within #StanDOM. https://stanford.io/2qc7z9Z #NPHW
