MORRISTOWN, NJ (Expansionary News Service) July 20, 2016. In the near future, people will be able to boost their intelligence and memory with the help of new generation of pharmaceuticals and technologies. In fact, many Wall Street dynamos, students, and artists are already availing themselves of such products.

Or so says internationally-recognized futurist/sociologist Michael G. Zey, Ph.D., author of Ageless Nation (Transaction Books, 2014) and The Future Factor (McGraw-Hill.)

Dr. Zey will be speaking on this subject at the World Future Society's international conference in Washington DC held the weekend of July 22nd. His speech is entitled "Smart and Smarter: How the Intelligence-Enhancement Revolution Will Change Our World."

From his Morristown, NJ offices, Dr. Zey said that there is ample evidence that academics, scientists, executives, and fighter pilots already are using drugs like Provigil and Adderall to boost their intelligence, concentration, alertness, and memory.

"Electronic technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation have been shown to improve subjects' intelligence and memory," says Dr. Michael Zey. Thync, Inc. and Halo Neuroscience now market to the public wearable devices that zap your brain that can change your mood and boost your alertness. Someday we will physically reengineer the brain to increase its functionality.

Zey's talk at the World Future Society will certainly spark controversy. He has predicted in the past that the intelligence enhancement revolution will be accepted and used by many but also opposed by others for a variety of ideological and political reasons.

However,  Dr. Zey states that eventually "everyone will want an intellectual edge to enhance academic and job performance."
