“It’s a little bit like when you’re going through the flu, you’re in a constant state of getting better and better and faster,” Holdren told a group of young entrepreneurs and technology professionals on Monday.
Holdren said his goal is to make the technology that helps students with the flu learn faster by the end of the year.
“We’re going to have a whole suite of new technologies to help us teach English more quickly, more effectively, and more effectively,” Holdreds first public remarks were to the tech and education industry at TechCrunch Disrupt, the annual technology conference in San Francisco.
The TechCrunch event was hosted by Holdren in his first official public appearance since leaving the White House to take the job at Microsoft.
Holdres plan is to expand the focus on the flu to other areas of education and beyond.
Holdred said the tech industry is in a transition period right now.
“The industry has shifted, so we’ve got to be more creative in what we do and how we’re going about it,” Holdre said.
“It will be interesting to see where this technology is going.”
Holdren spoke to about 50 entrepreneurs and tech professionals from tech companies, universities, government agencies, and tech companies.
The event, held in a hangar at the San Francisco airport, was a showcase of the tech community and the tech world as a whole.
Holds team is focused on helping young people learn about technology, and using it to create a better future.
“I think we’re a little ahead of the curve,” Holdres said of the flu vaccine.
“We’ve made huge strides in the past couple of years.
I think we need to get back to those strides in a timely manner.”
The flu vaccine is a relatively new invention.
But Holdren and other experts believe the technology is already working.
He said that since the first flu shot was administered in October, the number of flu shots administered has been steadily increasing and that it is now clear that the flu is no longer a pandemic.
“This is a big win for the flu,” Holdrews said.
