“Innovating with a purpose,” is something you might hear often. What does that really mean? Phil McKinney and Kym McNicholas touch on the upcoming technologies the cable industry and specifically CableLab are stirring up for the future -- for the better. CableLabs is the research and development arm for the cable industry. The role that broadband now plays in the world is truly remarkable. The question is -- how can they get broadband to those who don’t have it. It’s not longer a “nice-to-have” but rather, a “must-have.” At the CableLab annual conference, the team showed a video that emphasized their vision for the future of healthcare. Virtual doctors and other technologies show promise in the future of medicine. In fact, technologies such as these could cut nearly one trillion dollars in health care costs. You need to question society. What innovation do I need to create to address this societal challenge? It is all about how you define moments of need and connect them.
