The Future of Upgrading Humans and the Military – Andrew Herr #540

Dave Asprey
For a decade, Andrew Herr led the Department Of Defence's efforts on human enhancement envisioning the good, the bad, and the ugly of future warfighter enhancement and developing strategies for the military to capitalize on opportunities.

Andrew Herr is a science, technology and strategy consultant. In 2012, he founded a company that develops timed and tuned performance enhancement products to solve jet lag, diving fatigue, and a variety of other performance needs.

For a decade, Andrew led the U.S. Department Of Defence’s efforts on human enhancement envisioning the good, the bad, and the ugly of future warfighter enhancement and developing strategies for the military to capitalize on opportunities.

These efforts included research and development strategy, warfighter bioethics, developing a systems approach to the physiology of leadership under stress, and working with generals and elite operators on unique challenges.

This episode of Bulletproof Radio is recorded live at XPRIZE and we talk about the revolutionary ways Andrew’s work is influencing human performance.
