Welcome to Future Human, an exploration into the human potential of technology. Much of the technology we take for granted has been hatched over decades, forged by an ongoing and unlikely collaboration between emerging artists and the keenest engineering minds in the world. As the science fiction of days past becomes everyday reality, where will the next great ideas come from? Listen in as today’s most adventurous artists, musicians and creative thinkers inspire their scientific peers to unleash a more connected world.
Future Human is a presentation of Nokia Bell Labs, produced by audiation.fm.
Presented in its entirety, here is the Shannon Luminary Lecture by Miguel Nicolelis, founder and co-director of the Duke University Center for Neuroengineering. Listen in as Nicolelis describes a future where brain-machine interfaces restore movement to paralyzed limbs and allow humans to manipulate their environments with their minds rather than their muscles. If you haven’t already, then please check out episode 21 of Future Human for further insight into Nicolelis’s groundbreaking work.
