Join 4Combinator on Dec. 9 for a fascinating discussion about how artificial consciousness and revolutionary medical device design are poised to transform healthcare. This talk is sponsored by 4Combinator, an incubator that is developing medical devices that generate novel data using cloud computing and deep learning.

Professor of Physics Dr. Max Tegmark will give a lecture on artificial consciousness as a state of matter that can be described in terms of quantum mechanics and information theory. Dr. Tegmark’s theory is amazing and gives a glimpse into the future of artificial intelligence. Dr. Tegmark is a 4Combinator advisor.

Dr. Tegmark will be joined by MIT LeBel Professor of Electrical Engineering and co-founder of the Medical Electronic Device Realization Center Dr. Charles Sodini, who will discuss revolutionizing medical device design through advances in integrated circuits and microelectromechanical systems. Dr. Sodini is one of the best electrical engineers in the world and any time he lectures it’s an excellent opportunity to see where the field is headed. Dr. Sodini is a 4Combinator advisor.

Additionally, Jonathan Rothberg, the inventor of high-speed DNA sequencing and founder of Ion Torrent, RainDance, 454 Life Sciences, ClariFi, CuraGen will discuss an incubator he has started (4Combinator) for new medical device companies that leverage novel medical data that has never been available before, cloud computing and deep learning.

If you, or someone you know is interested in attending please feel free to forward them this registration link. The event will take place on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (EST) at the Norton's Woods Conference Center at the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, 136 Irving Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

A reception with beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres will follow the presentations with the opportunity to meet the speakers and to discuss career opportunities at 4Combinator, the event sponsor. 4Combinator is an incubator for novel medical devices that use IC devices, cloud computing and deep learning.
