Jim Collins uses artificial intelligence (AI) to explore beyond the limits of what was once thought possible. The former Rhodes Scholar and MacArthur Fellow (or MacArthur Genius, as you may know it) runs a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) lab whose goal is to combat increasing antibiotic resistance through new drug discovery. His work in synthetic biology, meanwhile, focuses on rewiring tiny organisms so that they can identify and even help treat infection. It’s all possible only because of AI, which Collins leverages to analyze the billions of data points required to push these boundaries. But Collins knows that AI is not magical, nor is it a silver bullet. Beyond the hype we can see that it’s no more or less than a high-tech tool. As such, it takes time, expertise and smart partnerships to integrate into a business and realize its potential. In this episode, Collins details the evolution of AI in healthcare and how the technology could advance biomedicine, as well as how those looking to leverage AI in healthcare can avoid common pitfalls, forge the right partnerships and take a thoughtful approach to implementation.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
