"Building the Future of Medical Technology"
Human health is the new frontier of technological progress—the area where technology has the greatest potential to improve the human condition. Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, the inventor of next-generation DNA sequencing who was awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation by President Barack Obama, has spent his career leveraging advances in artificial intelligence, semiconductors, and cloud computing to usher in a new age of precision medicine. With his 4Catalyzer incubator, Dr. Rothberg is working at the intersection of healthcare and technology to build devices that save lives and make healthcare more accessible. Dr. Rothberg will discuss his vision on where medical technology is headed in the decades to come, and how his companies are working to build that future.
