Recently, I launched my new concept The Digital Speaker and you can now book me as an avatar or hologram. Also, my tech trend prediction for 2021 is out, read it here!


Bioinformatics and Brain-Computer Interfaces


My latest episode:

If a human can use a brain-computer interface, can an AI use a computer-brain interface?

In the 14th episode of The Digital Speaker series, I am going to take a more in-depth look into some of the latest breakthroughs and innovations in bioinformatics and what this means for our society.

In this new episode, I will also go to delve back into cyberpunk and take another look at brain-computer interfacing.

I will be exploring the latest medical, military and gaming advancements, taking a peek at what the future might hold for this cutting edge industry.
