In April, SingularityU Canada brought two days of forward thinking to Edmonton. Some of the brightest minds in the world presented a vision for the future that embraced exponential technologies — from artificial intelligence to cellular agriculture to blockchain.
To help you navigate the rapidly changing world, we are summarizing some of that forward thinking for easy consumption.
In Philip Edgcumbe’s presentation, The Doctor’s Challenge, we got a look into the future of medicine from the physician’s point of view. An internal medicine doctor at the Vancouver General Hospital and a member of Singularity U Canada’s medicine faculty, Edgcumbe explained how the digitization of health will completely disrupt the medical profession — leading to earlier diagnosis and better management of chronic disease, but also to a total rethink of the doctor’s role.
