Weekend reading: FutureMed 2011

Categories: Latest News.

Over on MedGadget are two days of dense-pack reports from the five-day¬†FutureMed 2011 held at Singularity University (founded by futurist Ray Kurzweil and X Prize founder Peter Diamandis). Their mission is to ‘explore the exponential growth in technological advances of the sort related to the hypothetical technological singularity, a point in time where progress is so rapid that the future is increasingly difficult to predict.’ Call it ‘exponential change’ for short (whew!) What’s covered here: the lurching path technology takes, nanotechnology, robotics, self-driving cars, 3D printing for teeth and organs, eLegs, PHRs, EHRs, wearable sensors, experimental men, fast synthesizing of DNA, behavior change…and an unbelievable three more days of reports through Sunday to come!
