BIOMEDevice San Jose to Welcome Cyborg Foundation Co-Founder and Self-Identified Cyborg, Neil Harbisson, as 2016 Keynote Speaker
Date:11/17/2016

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOMEDevice San Jose, co-located with Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Silicon Valley to bring together the engineering and medtech industries, today announced its 2016 keynote speaker. Neil Harbisson, cyborg activist and Cyborg Foundation co-founder who famously had an antenna implanted in his skull, will take the keynote stage to deliver an enthralling presentation surrounding biological evolution via cybernetic technology.

BIOMEDevice San Jose and ESC Silicon Valley will take place December 6-8, 2016 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA. To learn more and to register, please visit: biomedevicesj.mddionline.com/ 

Neil Harbisson is the co-founder of the Cyborg Foundation, an international organization that promotes the use of cybernetics as a body part to extend human senses and perception and aims to help humans become cyborgs, defend cyborg rights and promote cyborgism as a social and artistic movement. He is best known for having an antenna implanted in his skull that allows him to perceive colors that are outside human vision such as infrareds and ultraviolets, and is the first person to be officially recognized as a human cyborg by the government. Neil's artworks investigate the relationship between color and sound, experiment the boundaries of human perception, and explore the use of artistic expression via sensory extensions. 

Neil's keynote presentation, The Art and Science of Extending Perception through Cybernetic Technology, will explore how taking an active part in our own biological evolution is no longer a theory, but an option. He will touch on how becoming technology, instead of using or wearing technology, opens up the possibility of having additional organs and senses beyond the ones confined to our species. According to Neil, by merging ourselves with technology we can become the designers of our own body and perception, thereby increasing our survival possibilities in earth and outer space, which poses the question:  Are we witnessing the renaissance of our species?

"We're thrilled to welcome a professional as dedicated and knowledgeable about bio technology as Neil," said Nina Brown, Vice President of Events for the Advanced Manufacturing Portfolio, UBM. "His work is constantly pushing industry boundaries and inviting the world to explore different ideas and perspectives related to how our bodies work and evolve. Our attendees will be hearing from a true industry pioneer who has dedicated his life to advancing the human body."
