AFRL Inspire 2023
Dr. Nate Bridges, a research biomedical engineer and program lead in the Air Force Research Laboratory, or AFRL’s, Human Effectiveness Directorate, explains in his speech “Moving Beyond Averages” how he and his research team are working to tailor technologies to fit humans’ unique needs at the 2023 AFRL Inspire event at the Air Force Institute of Technology’s Kenney Hall, Oct. 26, 2023. Bridges hopes to revolutionize military training by using technology that personalizes learning to the individual. “There’s no such thing as average when it comes to people,” Bridges said. “A lot of things in our society are designed for large groups of people, but here’s the thing: we’re all different. We have different needs, different preferences, and yet we’re forced to choose. Imagine a future where we don’t have to choose.” (U.S. Air Force photo / Cherie Cullen)
