Mad Scientist poster for Bio-Convergence and the Changing Character of War

Welcome to the livestreaming page for the Mad Scientist Bio Convergence and Soldier 2050 Conference

March 8-9, 2018
SRI International
Menlo Park, CA

This Mad Scientist conference partners U.S. Army TRADOC G-2 with SRI, International to explore bio-convergence and discuss the following questions:

  1. What does co-evolution of humans and their technologies look like, and how does it change warfare?
  2. How available will bio-capabilities -- including weapons -- be to non-state groups and individuals?
  3. What Soldier enhancements will be needed to operate in the faster, more lethal battlefield?
  4. What are the future technology breakthroughs that could speed the co-evolution of humans and what are the projected timeframes?

Leading scientists, innovators, and scholars from academia, industry, and government will gather to discuss how Bio Convergence, Human Enhancement, and the Democratization of Bio Improvements will revolutionize the Future Operational Environment through 2050.

Please see the agenda below for the full schedule of events and topics. You are invited to watch the presentations and participate in the question and answer sessions by using the video feed and chat box that will be available on this page during the event.
