Last week, I attended Singularity Summit Europe in Budapest at an amazing venue (Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music). Here are some notes I took during the event.

We have to accept the exponential changes in technologies, but should not exaggerate it.

The potential developments in biotechnology might not come from huge companies but brave youngsters. An example is mirOculus which makes it possible to screen cancer types using microRNAs.

Robots/drones that can communicate with each other become smarter and smarter.

Exoskeletons let disabled patients walk again.

Genia Aims to Build the iPhone of Gene Sequencing.

Humanoid robots with artificial intelligence will be commercially available soon.

3D printing could be mainstream in months.
