In addition, the patientfs health record will be transferred to a medical institute with high expertise so that the patient will be treated and given health advice based on the analysis of his/her life log data.

Educational clouds will make it possible for students at different sites to engage in discussions, and for instructors at different sites to share curricula and know-how on instructions so that students can learn more effectively. Review study and supplementary study at home can also become more effective, reducing the chances of students being left behind.
