Impact on Human Health

The COB will significantly enhance our ability to put individual patterns of health and disease in context with that of the entire population. It will also enable us to better understand the mechanisms of disease, how disease extends throughout the population, and how it may be better treated. The availability of the COB will resect time and randomness from the process of scientific hypothesis testing, since data will be available in a preformed state to answer a limitless number of questions. Finally, the COB will enable the prediction of healthcare costs more accurately. All of these beneficial reesults will be accelerated through the application of nanotechnology principles and techniques to the creation and refinement of imaging, computational, and sensing technologies.
