Daniel Kraft kicked off Singularity University’s FutureMed program at NASA AMES Research Center last night. A main goal of the program is to educate, inform and prepare physicians and senior healthcare executives to understand and recognize the opportunities and disruptive influences of exponentially growing technologies within medicine and healthcare.
The program will also help attendees understand how many rapidly developing and converging fields affect the future of clinical practice and the biomedical industry.
Daniel Kraft is the Executive Director of FutureMed and Chair of the Medicine Track at Singularity University. Co-founder of Singularity University Peter Diamandis (and founder of the XPrize) also gave a talk. Below are some photos of the FutureMed opening reception.
