It’s been an intense week. A week straight of 8am to 8pm every day. We are working on the medical simulation software for London hospitals now. So why are we really pushing this? To understand the motivation, we need to understand how to revolutionise a field of science. One of the clearest examples is Haley’s … Continue reading Dragging medicine from astrology to astronomy
Tech is it’s own speciality, clinicians “dipping into tech” is not effective
Over the last couple of days I have been speaking to clinicians who have ideas for tech. They want to see clinicians lead tech innovation and they want to see more of it. Sound exciting right? However, there seems to be a naive way of looking at tech. There are clinicians out there who want … Continue reading Tech is it’s own speciality, clinicians “dipping into tech” is not effective
Increasing computational power empowers clinicians
I love this time of year. The air is sharp and fresh enough to perk me up in the morning. I find myself being able to reset my body clock from the 3am internet addiction. A lot has happened over the past couple of months. The MSc is now in full swing and the more and … Continue reading Increasing computational power empowers clinicians
How much is your idea worth?
If you're a clinician there is no doubt that you've spotted a problem and thought of a possible solution. This is having an idea, but how much is it worth? In my previous posts, I have been a little flat with the value of ideas, I've generally said that they are not worth much. If … Continue reading How much is your idea worth?
What can Dyson tell us about success?
I've fallen in love with audible. I can pack in a few extra words of wisdom when I'm walking, doing laundry, cooking etc. Definitely an improvement from the random patchy music I listen to on the youtube app. I've got through a range of self-improvement, business, and biographical books. I liked the first one and then got lazy … Continue reading What can Dyson tell us about success?
Bryan Podcast: Episode 6
In this episode, I and Nathan explore the hype around machine learning and the over hype of science. The podcast is up to an hour long, is tangential and also contains personal anecdotes and light politics. As opposed to the inspirational clinicians section that tries to pack information into a short interview this is for … Continue reading Bryan Podcast: Episode 6
Realities of med-tech success
The other day I went to a talk by an investor at MD Start. Considering our ever-increasing reliance on med tech the average clinician would be forgiven to think that investment in med tech is booming. Although potentially millions can be made if your invention makes it this doesn’t mean that there are people lining … Continue reading Realities of med-tech success
Tips for clinicians to start coding
I get it, long shifts in a hospital to not encourage the average clinician to learn how to code. There is no doubt that coding can improve your data handling abilities and automate some very dull tasks or improve communication and clinical outcomes, but the environment you work in can make it hard to get you … Continue reading Tips for clinicians to start coding
Forget social politics! Algorithms can deal with flaky friends
Not matter what you do in life you will have consider backing off and cutting losses. In society, we use very simplistic rules. I’ve seen the method, three strikes and you’re out used in sports, employment and social relationships. This works well with the simplistic situations in sport. However, although this may save time it seems … Continue reading Forget social politics! Algorithms can deal with flaky friends

The podcast is up to an hour long, is tangential and also contains personal anecdotes and light politics. As opposed to the inspirational clinicians section that tries to pack information into a short interview this … Continue reading Bryan Podcast: Episode 4
