The conference will gather the foremost leaders from academia, industry, investment, policy, and advocacy from multiple disease communities, and build upon the novel strategies being pioneered by the Alzheimer's and cancer communities. Participants will consider the wider potential of these strategies, evaluating the feasibility of preventative and combinatorial medicine applications to treat all aging-related diseases.

Keynote Speakers for the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference
George Church, Robert Winthrop Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School and MIT Health Sciences and Technology, will open the conference on August 21st. Church is also the Director of PersonalGenomes.org and the Director of the NIH Center for Excellence in Genomic Science. His 1984 Harvard Ph.D. included the first methods for direct genome sequencing, molecular multiplexing and barcoding. These led to the first genome sequence in 1994. His innovations have contributed to nearly all "next generation" genome sequencing methods and companies. This plus chip-based DNA synthesis and stem cell engineering resulted in founding additional application-based companies spanning fields of medical diagnostics and synthetic biology/therapeutics. He has also pioneered new privacy, biosafety, environmental and biosecurity policies.

Peter Diamandis is Vice Chairman and Co-founder of Human Longevity Inc., Chairman and CEO of the X Prize Foundation, and the Executive Chairman of Singularity University. Dr. Diamandis is an international pioneer in the fields of innovation, incentive competitions and commercial space. He is the New York Times Bestselling author of "Abundance -- The Future Is Better Than You Think." He has won multiple awards, including the first Heinlein Laureate, the 2010 Economist "No Boundaries" Innovator of the Year Award, the 2007 Arthur C. Clarke Award, the 2006 Lindbergh Award, and the 2006 Neil Armstrong Award.

Jim O'Neill is partner and chief operating officer at Mithril, a growth fund for transformative and durable technology companies in fields such as cybersecurity, next generation finance, medical robotics, enterprise cloud services, 3D seismic technology, and data integration, visualization, and analysis. Previously, O'Neill was a managing director of Clarium, a global macro investment fund. He also ran the Thiel Foundation and co-founded the 20 Under 20 Thiel Fellowship and Breakout Labs. As the Principal Associate Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services, O'Neill helped manage an agency whose 67,000 employees regulate more than 25 percent of the U.S. economy. His main areas of policy and program responsibility included the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, security, intelligence, preparedness, and health diplomacy. He also made investments in drug, vaccine, and diagnostic research on the steering committee of the $200 million Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.

"These keynote speakers bring to the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference three very diverse perspectives -- the scientific, the investment and the business perspectives," said Mike Kope, CEO of SENS Research Foundation. "Their collective expertise in these areas, combined with our plenary panels and presentations, will be an inspiration and provide a roadmap to the creation of the rejuvenation biotechnology industry."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
