In this episode of the MWI Podcast, John Amble speaks with Dr. Amy Kruse, the chief scientific officer at the Platypus Institute, an organization that takes some of the most cutting-edge developments in the field of neuroscience and explores how they can be turned into practical programs that enhance human performance. During the conversation, she discusses “Human 2.0,” something she describes as a vision of where we are headed as humans, especially in terms of cognitive performance. She also describes how that vision overlays on the cognitive demands of war, and how those cognitive demands might change as the character of warfare changes.
