Wesley King – Futuristic Health Technologies That Are Already Here

In Making Waves Conversations by Mark Sylvester

Futuristic Health Technologies That Are Already Here

This conversation will remind you of the quote from William Gibson, “The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed.” Wesley spends his time on the fringes of technology and innovation, and as a result, he sees ideas before they hit the mainstream. He’s particularly interested in the Human of the Future (Now) and how technology can help us live richer, fuller, longer, and more active lives.
