Human augmentation technologies are generally considered to be technologies that can optimise, enhance, or augment human abilities. Such technologies can range from exoskeletons that can support with heavy lifting, to advanced brain computer interfaces with applications across sectors such as health, gaming, construction, and defence. From training individuals to cope better in stressful environments, to rehabilitation and improving health outcomes, when aligned with responsible, ethical and secure development, these technologies have the potential to make a positive impact in the way in which we live.

About the event

Join Innovate UK KTN to hear from a range of technology developers that are designing innovations within this emerging sector. In addition, hear from researchers that are interested in understanding the neuroscience behind these technologies.
