"Exponential Medicine 2017"


Exponential Medicine is a unique and intensive four-day experience that gathers world-class faculty, innovators and organizations from across the biomedical and technology spectrum to explore and leverage the convergence of fast moving technologies in the reinvention and future of health and medicine.

From talks given in custom a designed theater with multiple configurations for listening and idea capture to our hands-on technology lab to beachside morning yoga, dinners and bonfires - Exponential Medicine is a high energy, bold redesign of a medical conference.   Exponential Medicine is LIVE now! Watch online from anywhere in the world...

"The mission of Singularity University is to educate, inspire, and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity's grand challenges."

What is Exponential Medicine?

Founded by Dr Daniel Kraft in 2011, Exponential Medicine is an immersive, hands-on program focused on the implications of breakthrough developments such as 3D printing, personalized stem cell lines, point-of-care lab-on-a-chip diagnostics, robotics, augmented intelligence, machine learning, large-scale bioinformatics, synthetic biology, low cost genomics, gene editing, blockchain and more. These rapidly developing technologies are discussed in the context of the current explosions of digital information, big data, and connected, on-demand, distributed healthcare.

Designed for the clinicians, innovators, investors, executives, and makers driving progress in smart ways, Exponential Medicine gathers world-class faculty, organizations, and startups from across the biomedical and technology spectrum to present an engaging series of faculty talks, interviews, hands-on experiences, demos and in-depth exploration of what’s currently in the labs, what’s evolving clinically, and what game changing technologies are emerging in the next 2 to 10 years.

Our signature blend of exponential thinking, insight sharing, and high dimension of interaction sparks new relationships, research, business concepts, and collaborations that can transform one’s practice, research endeavor, organization, industry, and planet.

  About Singularity University:

Singularity University is a global community using exponential technologies and  scientific progress to tackle the world’s biggest challenges. At SU its is proud to support the responsible development of exponential technologies, such as AI, robotics, nanotechnology, and digital biology, that may provide solutions to climate change.

Singularity University is a benefit corporation headquartered at NASA’s research campus in Silicon Valley. We provide educational programs, innovative partnerships and a startup accelerator to help individuals, businesses, institutions, investors, NGOs and governments understand cutting-edge technologies, and how to utilize these technologies to positively impact billions of people.

A message from Conference Chair Daniel Kraft, MD:

Healthcare is in many ways being practiced as it has been for millennium, as 'SickCare’ -- using old, reactive models and mindsets where the FAX machine is the primary mode of sending patient information, where data is still silo'd amongst paper charts or rudimentary EMRS, and where feedback loops between clinician and patient are broken or limited.

We are living however in an fast moving, exponential age, where the convergence of rapidly developing technologies are enabling vast new capabilities that can radically improve and disrupt the future of health, prevention, and clinical practice, and address many of the grand challenges facing healthcare across the planet. It’s challenging to keep up with, understand, and incorporate the advancing technologies (3D printing, low-cost genomics, machine learning) becoming available.

In 2011 at Singularity University, where I chair the Medicine and Neuroscience track, we began an experiment; a novel program to 'un-silo' thinking and unleash cross-disciplinary innovation across healthcare. We brought together thought leaders and forward thinking clinicians and innovators in a mix of lectures, discussions, workshops, demos, and site visits, to explore, through the lens of fast moving technologies, the potential to reshape health and medicine .

Three highly successful Exponential Medicine programs were held at the Singularity University NASA Research Park campus. New friendships and collaborations were formed across clinical disciplines, countries, companies, startups, both inside and outside the healthcare industry. Fast rising startups were inspired and founded by Exponential Medicine alumni (including Scanadu and Sentrian).

Given the demand (many more applicants that participant spots) we grew the program to become what it is today. The iconic Hotel del Coronado and it’s magical beachfront setting, gentle waves, warm sunny days, and dramatic sunsets play an important and prominent role in fostering an intimate mix of new ideas, people and collaborations. The participant feedback and enthusiasm has been tremendous. We’ve been told it changes careers, minds, hearts, and lives.

It’s an intense four days of immersion in future-looking topics, hands-on experience, in-depth, late night, high energy discussions with remarkable and inspiring people passionately sharing their ideas, discoveries, aspirations, and invitations to join them. Which is why the conference sells out earlier each year.
