My Digital Twin

Say “Hi!” to my digital twin.
 
“What?”
 
Wait for it: this is Babylon, the digital health provider.
 
 
The blurb for the free app  says:
 
“Babylon's free digital service puts your health in your hands. Try Healthcheck ... never before. Build your Digital Twin and explore your body from the inside out.”
 
Naturally I have downloaded it to my IPhone and signed up.
 
I tested its knowledge of painkillers for knee surgery. It gave a long and detailed list but missed out the popular one – tramadol- the one most people including myself are given.
Still it is pretty impressive.
 
Meanwhile I am sticking to Dr Google.
 
Make no mistake though , this is the future where you will have a doctor in your pocket 24/7-a hypochondriac’s dream come true.
