Dr. Peter Diamandis Chosen to Keynote IPC APEX EXPO 2014

Industry Votes to Hear from Visionary CEO, Exponential Technology Expert

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, September 17, 2013 — Peter Diamandis, M.D., has been selected through a vote of electronics industry professionals to present the opening keynote at  IPC APEX EXPO® on Tuesday, March 25, 2014, in Las Vegas.

Diamandis, whose personal motto is, “The best way to predict the future is to create it yourself,” is chairman and CEO of the X Prize Foundation, which designs and launches large incentive prizes to drive radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity. He is also co-founder and executive chairman of Singularity University (SU), a Silicon Valley-based institution partnered with NASA, Google, Autodesk and Nokia that focuses on exponentially growing technologies.

Through his work, Diamandis has proven the transformational power that exponentially growing technology has on companies, governments and humanity, as well as on “do-it-yourself” technologists and small companies that can now achieve what only governments or large corporations could do before.

In his keynote presentation, Diamandis will share how artificial intelligence, nanomaterials, 3-D printing, robotics and digital medicine will transform life and business over the next 20 years. He will explain how human society has evolved from “local and linear” to “global and exponential,” and how this change has not only spawned the creation of new billion-dollar start-ups out of nowhere, but also led to the demise of 50-year-old billion-dollar companies overnight.

An expert in a wide range of scientific disciplines, Diamandis attended MIT, where he received degrees in molecular genetics and aerospace engineering. He earned his M.D. from Harvard Medical School.

Professionals from throughout the electronics manufacturing industry chose Diamandis to be the opening keynote speaker through an online voting process in July 2013. Diamandis’ address on Tuesday, March 25, at 8:30 am, is free to all registered IPC APEX EXPO attendees.

The IPC APEX EXPO conference and exhibition will run March 25–27, 2014. Standards development meetings, professional development courses and other show activities will take place March 23–27. Access to the exhibit hall is free to pre-registrants, a savings of $35 on-site. For more information on IPC APEX EXPO, visit  www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.
