Description: Brain health is a rapidly evolving field, with digital platforms starting to revolutionize all aspects of prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Discover how the growing demand for “brain fitness” and the growing supply of innovative digital solutions is creating a multi-billion global market for web-based, mobile and biometrics-based tech­nol­ogy to assess, mon­i­tor and enhance cog­ni­tion and brain func­tion­ing.

Alvaro Fer­nan­dez, member of the Council on the Future of Human Enhancement, hosted by the World Economic Forum, runs Sharp­Brains, an inde­pen­dent mar­ket research firm and think-tank track­ing applied neu­ro­science. A fre­quent pub­lic speaker, he has been quoted by The New York Times, The Wall Street Jour­nal, CNN, Reuters, and Asso­ci­ated Press. Alvaro is the Editor-in-chief of a recent report on Pervasive Neurotechnology, and co-authored “The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness: How to Opti­mize Brain Health and Per­for­mance at Any Age,” translated into Spanish, Japanese, Polish.
