Meet several of the world's first "cyborgs" - a hospital-bound tetraplegic, a blind retiree, and an artist with Parkinson’s  - and the scientists and entrepreneurs on a quest to unlock the secrets of the brain. 


As these pioneers grapple with the unique opportunities of advanced brain technology, we’re forced to reconcile with the larger implications: will the same technologies that heal the sick allow us to develop super human abilities, communicate telepathically, and enhance our own cognition? 

I Am Human is the story of a quiet revolution defining the future of humanity. As we march down a new evolutionary path, age old questions take on a new twist: 

Who are we?

What might we become?

And, perhaps most importantly, are we ready?



Eighty-five billion neurons.

Two and a half years.

Thirty two scientists.

Three patients.

Four ethicists.

Three entrepreneurs.



Make brain science

the new rocket science.

Our mission is for viewers to challenge assumptions about the co-evolution of humans and technology, and ultimately - what it means to be human.
