Google Jumps Back into Healthcare Space with Calico

Google recently announced plans to launch Calico, a new firm that will try to solve healthcare’s problems and extend human life, according to Google co-founder and CEO, Larry Page, who made an official announcement about the initiative on his Google+ page on Sept. 18.

Google is keeping most of Calico’s major details a secret for now, such as its funding and employee headcount, according to Time. However, the company does predict that it likely will use its own data-processing capabilities to shed new light on “age-related maladies.” Calico likely will start small and research new technologies.
