Reimagining the Future Athlete


On June 13th, I will be presenting at a Rutgers Athletics Fund Raiser with a focus on the future of athletes and athletics. We will explore

1) Automation – robots replacing athletes, sensors and software replacing officiating

2) Performance – more data and machine learning lead to improved performance through better insights

3) Extended careers – healthy life extension and rejuvenation approaches extend the careers of athletes

4) Human-machine convergence – the athlete of the future is part machine part human

5) Genetic engineering – athletes at another level as genes are manipulated to make newborns smarter, faster, stonger

6) Spectator experience – virtual and augmented reality will change the viewing experience considerably. You will be able to witness an event from your home as if you were sitting right in the stadium

Should be a fun night
