Computers can definitely help. But so will genomics. Knowing even a single disease-causing gene may extend lifespan by ~5 years (1-5). One minor corrollary may be a general viral antidote (6), useful for killer viruses like West Nile (5) and avian influenza ("bird flu").

We're now trying to find the genetic variations, called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, pronounced "snips"), for cancer. So far, we can predict who will get breast, colon, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, and prostate cancer among Caucasians with 85% accuracy. We'd like to extend this to >95% of all cancers, in all ethnic groups, and in children as well as adults.

Some banks will sputter, and maybe even fail, even the big boys. But they've already had two years since the end-of-the-world sell-off in March 2009 to get their acts together, and many can now pay dividends. Hopefully the FDIC is ready to dive in and remove the remaining toxic mortgage assets of any failing banks, along with their managements, and then refloat the institutions. This contingency should be well mapped out by now with the Orwellian-named "Orderly Liquidation Authority" in the Dodd-Frank law.
