“Human Augmentation: Blurring the line between Biology and Technology”

In recent lists of Emerging Technologies there is an ever increasing emphasis on “human related” technologies such as biochips, brain-computer interfaces, artificial tissue, the most prominent one being “Human Augmentation”.

Human Augmentation can be described as the natural, artificial, or technological alteration of the human body in order to enhance physical or mental capabilities. Many different forms of human enhancing technologies are either on the way or are currently being tested and trialed. A few of these emerging technologies include: human genetic engineering (gene therapy),

neurotechnology (neural implants and brain–computer interfaces), cyberware, nanomedicine, and 3D bioprinting. Physical enhancements include cosmetics (plastic surgery & orthodontics), Drug-induced (doping & performance-enhancing drugs), functional (prosthetics & powered exoskeletons), Medical (implants (e.g. pacemaker) & organ replacements. Computers, mobile phones, and Internet can also be used to enhance cognitive efficiency.

Come and learn about the newest emerging technologies.

Talk Title: “2019 Emerging Technologies, and Technology Hype Cycle”  by Dr. William Kao

Talk Abstract:

The 2019 Hype Cycle highlights the emerging technologies with significant impact on business, society and people over the next five to 10 years. This year includes technologies that promise to deliver a global low-latency internet, create a virtual map of the real world and mimic human creativity. 

Some of the technologies on the rise include artificial tissue, immersive workplaces, AR cloud, adaptive machine learning, nanoscale 3D printing, augmented intelligence, flying autonomous vehicles, emotion and explainable AI, synthetic data. Some of the technologies at the peak include edge AI, low earth orbit satellite systems, edge analytics, 5G, biochips and graph analytics. Finally technologies sliding into the trough include next generation memory, 3D sensing cameras, and autonomous driving.

This two hour seminar will present and explain the newest set of emerging technologies with an overview of each technology.

Don’t miss this highly educational and informative talk.
