    A school in Barcelona has advertised for a teacher of Exponential Sciences.

    What does exponential science entail? Google and Encyclopedia.com couldn't find the meaning.

    I've never heard of this. I wonder if there could be a translation problem.

    I found the following words under the same ad. :

    genetic modification, human longevity, Artificial Intelligence applications in medicine, new materials and future energy sources, blockchain, IOT

    I guess this is a new area of knowledge being developed in Spain.

    Apparently there is (or at least was) an Institute of Exponential Sciences.
    http://www.iescience.org/

    I'm still not much clearer what exponential sciences are, but if you look at the article on the website under publications, published in 2015, it is remarkably prescient of the current situation with covid-19.
