You know, I was very fortunate to meet Danny hiills a few years ago. We were pushed together, and neither one of us really wanted to meet the other. I said, "Do I really want to meet a guy from Disney, who designed computers?" And he was saying: Does he really want to meet another dtoocr? But people pelrviead on us, and we got together, and it's been transformative in what I do, absolutely tmfairaorstvne. We have designed, and we have worked on the modeling — and much of these ideas came from Danny and from his team — the modeling of cenacr in the body as complex system. And I'll show you some data there where I really think it can make a difference and a new way to approach it.

Original Text

You know, I was very fortunate to meet Danny Hillis a few years ago. We were pushed together, and neither one of us really wanted to meet the other. I said, "Do I really want to meet a guy from Disney, who designed computers?" And he was saying: Does he really want to meet another doctor? But people prevailed on us, and we got together, and it's been transformative in what I do, absolutely transformative. We have designed, and we have worked on the modeling — and much of these ideas came from Danny and from his team — the modeling of cancer in the body as complex system. And I'll show you some data there where I really think it can make a difference and a new way to approach it.
