Future of Brain Science and the Military with Jonathan Moreno, Mind Wars Author

 

Jonathan D. Moreno, Author of Mind Wars explores DARPA and the role of the intelligence community and university science departments in preparing the military and intelligence services for the 21st century. Super soldiers, drugs that erase fear and the need to sleep, neuroscience, advanced prosthetics and other initiatives are changing the course of modern warfare with many ethical concerns.

Jonathan covers these issues in his recent book, Mind Wars. He is also the author of The Body Politic: The Battle Over Science in America, Is There An Ethicist in the House, Undue Risk: Secret State Science Experiments on Humans and Deciding Together: Bioethics and Moral Consensus.

    Video is on http://youtu.be/v_od9blUeUY - I actually had problems with the the Bk Futurist YouTube channel - so it's on the ISOC Chapters channel. I will try and get it ported over.

    Terrific, well-credentialed world-class speaker who really knows his stuff. Good video visuals. Plenty of Q&A time. Plus I bought his book.

    I assume the speech and Q&A last unit 8:30, not 7:30. (Hard to have a speech and Q&A in five minutes.)

    • mike t

      you are correct, speech is normal duration
