Jack Andraka on his Breakthrough and Changing the World Thumbnail

The first time I interviewed Jack Andraka he was the youngest guest ever on my Singularity 1on1 podcast. At 16 he already had a mind-blowing list of science awards and inventions, the most notable of which was his nanotechnology-based pancreatic cancer test. So when I discovered that Jack will be [...]

Ramez Naam on Apex, Science, Politics and Ethics Thumbnail
