CHARITE ENTREPRENEURSHIP SUMMIT 2016 - Singularity University workshop (27 may 2016)
Collaboration in Digital

Singularity University = EXPONENTIAL TECHNOLOGIES
Exponentials are accelerating technologies for which performance relative to cost and size is
doubling every one to two years—a rate similar to Moore’s Law
“Be prepared to learn how the growth of exponential and
disruptive technologies will impact your industry, your
company, your career and your life”.
It's not an accredited
university, and it doesn't
actually teach the
singularity, the supposed
superintelligence that will
result when man merges
Healthcare is the only industry where all the Exponential
Technologies are in place and converging
Smartphone = PlatformEmpowered Patients

Big Data Precision Medicine
Hacking Life’s Code

 Online care
Every Company will be a Technology Company
These trends suggest dramatically increasing comfort among
both patients and physicians with health care provided virtually
 Empowered Patients
Peer-to-peer health care will change the world
Patients and caregivers know things and they want to share what they know
to help other people.
User-generated data = the new Public Health
 3D Printing
Medicine #1 area of application
3D Printing works with any material (glass, titanium,…)
and any scale (micro scale, building scale,…)
Tissues with blood vessels
Low–Cost Prosthetic Parts
WARNING: 3D printing will cause an intellectual property
nightmare. 10x worse than what we’re seeing with digital files.
12 Things We Can 3D Print in
 Medical Tricorder
From B2B to B2C: Healthcare Is Becoming A Consumer Business
The Medical Tri-Corder: consumers are in charge
 Portable Diagnostics (POC)
Devices that are becoming our go-to diagnostic centers
Imagine a simple blood test that can tell
you, at the molecular level, the exact
type of disease you have and its severity
before presenting any symptoms.
Imagine using the same test to monitor
the success of the treatment.
By January 2013, Kahol’s team had
incorporated 33 diagnostic tests, including for
HIV, syphilis, pulse oximetry, and troponin
(relating to heart attack) into the Swasthya
Slate and reduced its cost to $800 per unit.
In high volumes, the Swasthya Slate can be
produced for as little as $150 per unit.
 Artificial Intelligence (AI)
In 10 years, you will trust your computer more than your doctor
After only one year, Watson’s
successful diagnostic rate for
lung cancer is 90%, compared
to 50% for human doctors.
One such Watson system
contains 40 million documents,
ingests an average of 27.000
new documents per day, and
provides insights for thousands
The smartest thing on the planet today is neither man nor machine.
It’s a combination of the two.
 Big Data
In The Hospital Of The Future, Big Data Is One Of Your (Best) Doctors
DNA / RNA Proteins Metabolites

The 7 trillion piece puzzle
 Precision Medicine
Discovering unique therapies that treat an individual’s condition based on the specific
abnormalities of their disease
 Human Augmentation
 Brain Computer Interface (BCI)
Technology will help us understand the brain (the last human frontier)
 Wearables & Sensors
The human body is the next computer interface
 VR (Virtual Reality) / AR (Augmented Reality)
AR/VR in healthcare is predicted to generate $2.54 billion globally by 2020
 Genome sequencing
Hacking Life’s Code
Note the sudden and profound out-pacing of Moore's Law beginning in January 2008. This represents the
time when the sequencing centers transitioned from Sanger-based (dideoxy chain termination sequencing)
to 'second generation' (or 'next-generation') DNA sequencing technologies.
Streamlining healthcare delivery: The age of autonomous transport

1. Humans become disillusioned
“When an exponential technology is at 1%, you are halfway to 100%”
2. Technology does not translate to labor productivity
3. Our legacy systems (institutions) are slow
Law of Disruption:
“Social, political, and economic
systems change incrementally,
but technology changes
