While Israel is widely known for its rich history and culture, it has also become a leading center of health and medical technology, developing cutting-edge breakthroughs in medical devices, robotics and artificial intelligence. In the eight-part online TV docuseries “TrueFuture: Israel,” tech entrepreneur Joe Mullings introduces viewers to the Israeli visionaries whose discoveries are changing the world, while soaking up the local culture in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and elsewhere. New episodes will post every two weeks at TrueFuture.tv.
“What we tried to do in every episode was demonstrate the old, the new, the future, the prospective, and the humanity in the middle of it,” Mullings told the Journal. “There were so many things to shoot and capture. We had an unbelievable crew and the government was so welcoming to us. The challenge was we didn’t have enough time. I’m pretty sure we’ll go back for a part two of the series after the pandemic, whenever that is.”
Over 10 days in the fall of 2019, Mullings visited a children’s hospital with an on-site medical device development lab; had a seder meal with successful female tech entrepreneurs; learned how a thumbnail-size robot, implanted in the brain, can prevent the need for surgeries; and a how a software app can detect changes in the voice to diagnose health issues.
