Human 2.0 will cover the principles underlying current and future technologies for cognitive, emotional, social, and physical augmentation. Topics include robotic exoskeletons and orthoses, limb prostheses, neural implants, social-emotional prostheses, and cognitive prostheses.

Students will learn scientific models of the human body from various fields (e.g., biomechanics, neuroscience, psychology) including their application in augmentation technology design for persons of both regular and irregular physiology. The course includes the completion of a semester project focused on human subjects testing with associated publication-quality paper.

Enrollment limited.
