Verily already has several projects in the works, including the development of a smart contact lens in partnership with the Swiss drugmaker Novartis that has an embedded glucose sensor.

"We hope this smart contact lens will make it easier for people with diabetes to monitor themselves continuously by measuring the glucose in their tears," the company said on its website.

The company's research team is also undertaking a multi-year project, known as the Baseline study, that aims to identify traits associated with a healthy human and the changes that take place as individuals transition from health to disease.
