In the last decade alone humans have developed countless technologies that helped us overcome our physical limitations. We have built vehicles that allow us to travel at unprecedented speeds, venture into the depths of the oceans or the helm of space, and overcome numerous biological limitations (extending life, replacing organs, recovering from debilitating conditions, overturning conditions like deafness, blindness, or paralysis). Further, we are making progress to penetrate margins of our psyche that were inaccessible before (i.e., decoding dreams and thoughts or communicating with individuals under vegetative states).
All of those advances were enabled by new technologies.
In Advanced Technology and Human Performance, we strive to uncover new sustainable ways by which technology can help us overcome our cognitive limitations and elevate our species to previously unthinkable levels. We do this investigation while exploring the guardrails that these advances would necessitate. In pursuing this mission the center functions as a hub that brings together world-leading experts from academia industry think tanks governments and the media.
