Google announces Calico, a health company aiming to extend human life

Google is no doubt a big company and can do what it wants to. Now led by Larry Page, it seems Google is taking on the Angel of Death himself. The search giant has announced a new company called Calico, which essentially targets the healthcare sector and aims to extend human life.

Larry Page announced the company and described Calico as a moonshot, along the lines of Google’s self-driven cars. “It takes 10 or 20 years to go from an idea to something being real,” Page explained. “Health care is certainly one of those areas. We should shoot for the things that are really, really important, so 10 or 20 years from now we have those things done.”

The new company will be head by Arthur D. Levinson, former CEO of Genentech and current chairman of Apple. At Calico, Levinson will work as CEO and founding investor. Google though didn’t reveal any more details on how the venture would operate or what it would do.

This is not the first time Google has dipped its feet into the healthcare sector. Its Google Health project aimed at digitizing personal health record services, but unfortunately the service was shut down in 2011.

Uyire oru varthai sollada song lyrics uyire oru varthai sollada
unnakaga kathuirupen ennai nee etrukolada
unnodu naan irupen ..

unnai piriyumm nimidum methu
unmel irukum aasai methu

anbey anbey ithu nijam thana sollu

sagiey sagiey ennai kollamal kollathadi

uyire oru varthai sollada
unnakaga kathuirupen ennai nee etrukolada
unnodu naan irupen ..

oru naal unnai parthu parthu enn kangal verkuthada..
maru naal unnai parka mudiyamal ullam vaduthada..

ini endru endru neethaan !! en nilal kuda neethan ..
kaan parkum thesai ellam adi  neethana engum ..

ullam engi engi manum kaneeril mulguthada anbe ..
unnodu valazha enn jeevan enguthada..

uyire oru varthai sollava ennakaga neeirupa
unnai naan etrukollava, unnai indri veeru illai..

Arugil nee vendum endru enn ithaiyum ketkuthadi..
Kanavil Naan Kanda Kavavu indru Nijamaai Maariyatha Di....

unnmai kathal ellam poiyaai aanathu illai
aanal enthan kathal uyir vaalum varayil

theedatha panth…
