At Xpomet we want to lead the world of healthcare into the future. To achieve this aim, we have gathered some of the most exciting healthcare players from across the world. One such speaker truly pushing the envelope is Dr Rafael Grossmann.
The Venezuelan-born doctor distinguished himself in the USA by quickly adopting the power of futuristic technologies. In 2013, he made history by being the first doctor to live stream a surgery through Google Glass. Covered in Forbes by John Nosta, the surgery went viral, leading the charge in how surgery can be taught to future medical practitioners.
This love of embracing technology was born by his early experiences as a doctor in Venezuela, delivering care to remote, unconnected areas. The Singularity University Alumni believes in the transformative power of such technologies to ensure better medical care and education for all, flattening complex geographical and logistical difficulties in the process. This includes Mobile and Wearable platforms, Virtual Augmented and Mixed Reality, Deep Leaning and Blockchain, all of which will help better connect the patient to treatment, leading to a more efficient yet paradoxically more humane patient care system.
The General, Trauma, Advanced Laparoscopic and Robotic surgeon currently practices in Maine, USA. Working in rural areas is a reminder that easy healthcare access is not an automatic certainty for many people, leading Grossmann to advocate for innovations such as telemedicine, mHealth and Digital Medicine. In addition to his practice, he is a MagicLeap Healthcare Advisor, advises multiple tech startups and regularly lectures at Institutions such as MIT Media Lab, Stanford, Google and Deloitte. He is also a renowned Tedx. Speaker.
He blogs regularly about his work — you can follow him on Twitter @ZGJR to hear his thoughts about all things health and tech. If you want to learn more about him, either read his bio here or visit his website at: https://rafaelgrossmann.com.

Antibiotic resistance has become a global health problem during the past three decades due to the emergence of dangerous, resistant strains with disturbing regularity, something that Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin, warned us about during his Nobel Prize speech in 1945. In April this year a new groundbreaking report was put forward by the UN and international agencies that called for immediate action to avert a potentially disastrous antibiotic-resistance crisis. Based on predictive analytics, antibiotic-resistance could mean 10 million

After doing lot of in-depth research on the subject, I have both good and bad news for you.Let’s start with the bad.We traditionally thought that Alzheimer’s is a disease of “old age” but new research is showing that younger and younger people are affected with the condition or start developing neuropathologies associated with it.For instance,

We are all familiar with the saying “One man’s food is another man’s poison” yet it is only now with the advent of nutrigenomics and microbiome research that it is becoming apparent why. Poisons are not restricted to lectins in grains and legumes or to common food intolerances such as to gluten, casein (dairy), soy, corn and egg protein. Popular food items that are generally considered “heathy” may have deleterious effects in some people and recent nutrigenomics and microbiome research

Whether it's clubs or cabaret, the Weimar Republic or the Legendary ‘90s, Berlin has always been known for its progressive sexual politics. And in recent years, it’s become even more acclaimed for its innovative start-up culture. Therefore it’s no surprise to see the two interests merge, with the world of sex meeting the world of deep tech. Nevertheless, the topic of sex does not get enough attention in terms of technology, making it important to bring this subject to the forefront
Security is at the very heart of healthcare. By making sure that those on the receiving end of care are safe, half the battle of keeping them healthy has already been achieved.

Cyber-Security Council Germany is a Berlin-based organisation founded in 2012 with the aim of advising businesses, policymakers and governments on how to maintain cyber security and successfully combat cybercrime.
