Jim Dalrymple on Apple’s new ResearchKit, introduced during Monday’s ‘Spring Forward’ event. Name another technology gadget company that does this.
ResearchKit is a software framework that allows doctors and researchers to gather data more frequently and accurately than ever before. It’s a way for those people to help find the causes and cures for the diseases that haunt humanity.
As I sat listening to Jeff Williams talk about ResearchKit, I thought to myself, this is why I love Apple—they care. They don’t just talk the talk and put out press releases about massive donations they make to charities, they are actually making a difference and putting the power of the most successful company in the world behind what they say.
ResearchKit benefits Apple, yes, but the company made the project open source so everyone benefits, regardless of device.
