Will we soon have an “annual brain check-up” — and what may it look like?

Will we soon have an “annu­al brain check-up” — and what may it look like? Under what con­di­tions may spe­cif­ic brain training/ enhance­ment meth­ods work? How can we best har­ness both human neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI) to thrive in the 21st Cen­tu­ry? Which com­pa­nies, tech­nolo­gies and solu­tions are gain­ing the most trac­tion so far, and what are some best prac­tices for appro­pri­ate use?


The 2017 Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit (Decem­ber 5–7th, 2017) will fea­ture over thir­ty of the world’s top experts and inno­va­tors work­ing on ways to enhance our brain health and per­for­mance in light of emerg­ing neu­ro­science and dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies. Addi­tion­al­ly, and for the first time, it will host a Brainnova­tions Pitch Con­test to fos­ter col­lab­o­ra­tive prob­lem-solv­ing between sci­en­tists, prac­ti­tion­ers, tech­nol­o­gists and entre­pre­neurs.

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 Dig­i­tal Age

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
