With electronics and information technology, we are quite literally both modifying our minds and bodies but also influencing its growth and possibly future evolution. We’ve Invited Michel Decre to provide his perspective as both innovator and critical thinker to share his thoughts on the developments and future visions of the technological utopia often presented in the popular tech-media, surprising us with his call to action for humane technology.
Michel Decre is an innovator and entrepreneur in neurotechnology. Has been present at the start of many technological innovations during his work with Sapiens, Medtronic, Salvia Bioelectronics and, amongst others, Philips. With a background in physics and mechanical engineering Michel Decre has a detailed understanding how the many parts of our bodies operate at multiple scale levels. But his perspective is much broader, encompassing the scientific and philosophical thoughts informing how we view our own humanity in an increasingly technological society.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
