Event Details

Xconomy Forum: Human Impact of Innovation

What are the major innovations that will have the biggest overall impact on humans—on people’s lives, comfort, health, and security—and what role will San Diego play in the advance of these technologies?

Xconomy is organizing a half-day forum to explore this theme, focusing on the innovations in the life sciences and technology that appear most likely to affect large numbers of people or markets, and on the breakthroughs that promise to result in substantially lower costs for consumers.

Among the fields we'll be examining:

  • Quantified Health
  • Fighting Cancer
  • Self-driving Vehicles
  • Cybersecurity
  • Precision Medicine

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dan Goldin, former Administrator, NASA; Chairman, President & CEO, KnuEdge
  • Henrik Christensen, Director, UCSD Institute for Contextual Robotics
  • Larry Smarr, Director, CalIT2
  • Jeff Hawkins, VP on Reproductive Health, Illumina
  • Clayton Lewis, Co-founder & CEO, Seattle-based Arivale
  • Jay Lichter, Managing Director, Avalon Ventures Partner
  • Steven Steinhubl, Professor, Scripps Translational Science Institute
