Yeah, it's surprisingly high quality. Tempted myself since I wasn't aware of NCGS until just now.

Watson offers a cognitive computing approach to diagnosis, whereas CrowdMed harnesses the collective intelligence of actual humans. AI and machine learning-based systems like Watson cannot yet interact with patients or make sense of the type of medical case data that our human Medical Detectives can. That said, we're in ongoing partnership discussions with Watson with the goal of combining the complimentary strengths of "man and machine" to bring CrowdMed patients the best of both worlds.
And in other news, uBiome is now offering a clinical-grade SmartGut kit which will check for dysbiosis, infections, etc. besides sequencing your gut microbiome. It requires a doctor to sign off on it, but it looks like they will do the dirty work of contacting the physician to get permission before they mail you the kit (and insurance will cover the cost). Very exciting to be able to virtually bypass the stifling bureaucracy and ignorance!

Re the butter chart:

Maybe last night's $500 migraine made me stupid (they tend to do that), but I can't make heads or tails of that chart. What is it telling us?
