The Norton's Woods Conference Center is just off the Red Line between the Harvard Square and Porter stops.
Join us for a fascinating discussion about how artificial consciousness and revolutionary medical device design are poised to transform healthcare. Our visionary speakers will discuss:
  • Consciousness as a state of matter that can be described in terms of quantum mechanics and information theory
  • Revolutionizing medical device design through advances in integrated circuits and microelectromechanical systems
A reception will follow the presentations with the opportunity to meet the speakers and to discuss career opportunities at 4Combinator.
