Event description


Will we soon have an “annual brain check-up” — and what may it look like? How can we harness lifelong neuroplasticity to thrive in the digital age? Under what conditions may specific brain stimulation/ training/ enhancement methods work? How can digital platforms and artificial intelligence (AI) enable Mental Health 2.0? Which firms, technologies and solutions are gaining the most traction, and what are best practices for appropriate use?

The 2017 SharpBrains Virtual Summit (December 5-7th) will feature over thirty of the world’s top experts and innovators working on ways to reinvent Brain Enhancement in light of emerging Neuroscience and Digital Technologies.

--> Check out the latest Agenda and confirmed Speakers HERE.

The Summit Agenda will explore in depth the 5 core themes discussed in the article Five reasons the future of brain enhancement is digital, pervasive and (hopefully) bright:

  1. 7.5 billion human brains need help to thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

  2. Lifelong neuroplasticity means all those brains can be enhanced

  3. Mobile, sensing, wearable technologies, coupled with artificial intelligence (AI), provide a new platform to harness that neuroplasticity

  4. Entrepreneurship and investments are fueling accelerated growth

  5. Professionals are stepping up to help ensure appropriate use
