IEET Executive Director James Hughes will join invited workshop participants (neuroscientists, bioengineers, neuroethicists, social scientists, relevant entrepreneurs, and people with legislative, executive, and regulatory experience) to address how a converging set of new technologies that promise to give human beings opportunities to develop, heal and alter their cognitive abilities in a variety of ways will impact society. Governments increasingly will be called upon to support, permit, require, or limit, research and application of such cognitive enhancement technologies.
