Human +
The Human+ practices of the future research practices for the harmonious development of a person, his health, and longevity. They study the strengthening of physical, cognitive and sensory personal abilities, as well as new approaches to communication and interaction between people.
Global Challenges
Health Care Crisis
In 2020, humanity has faced a large-scale crisis caused by the spread of the coronavirus infection COVID-19. The pandemic has resulted in tremendous human toll, economic and social upheaval.

Head of WHO Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus called the pandemic is a crisis in the health care system and urged for global change. The necessary changes include the search for new, more effective methods of diagnosing, treating and preventing diseases, increasing the availability of quality medical services, and public awareness.

To overcome the current crisis and prevent future ones, comprehensive measures are required. It is necessary to launch medical and technological innovations, social and economic measures. Ensuring public health is the most important social task and personal responsibility of every person.
Human-Machine Systems
The complexity of the intellectual, creative challenges facing humanity significantly has increased. This can be done through the use of technologies to enhance the cognitive and physical capacities of the person, as well as the creation of tools for collaborative work.

Technology can help people use their intellectual and creative abilities more effectively, eliminating the need for routine operations. They can reduce off-target cognitive load and the risk of injury. However, the introduction of new technologies is associated with risks. It may not reduce, but increase the burden on a person and even pose a threat to health, lead to negative social effects such as an increase in inequality and atomization of society.

Technology has to support people in solving complex problems but does not deprive them of realizing their creative potential. For a full-fledged and harmonious interaction between humans and technology, it is necessary to clear it in the field of philosophy, culture, and ethics. The search for ways to organize harmonious interaction between man and technology is one of the practices of the future.
Existing Practices of The Future
1. Health And Longevity Practices
Medicine can improve human lives and provide more opportunities for self-realization, as it ensures health and increases the duration of an active life. The practices of the future in the field of medicine are those that provide people with new opportunities to maintain their health and assist people in need. A significant part of the practice requires scientific and applied research.
1.1 Personalized medicine
Personalized medicine is a collection of solutions for predicting health risks, preventing disease occurrence, developing personalized therapy, and healthy lifestyles. Personalized medicine technologies include genotyping, drag design, data analysis, monitoring, and recommendation systems.
1.2 Collective health
Collective health is practices aimed at limiting the spread of infectious diseases within communities and protecting the most vulnerable people from disease. Collective health practices include the use of biomedical technologies such as vaccination, computer modeling and forecasting, and ways of organizing living and public spaces.
1.3 New approaches to methods of research
New approaches to methods of research are new technologies used in biomedical research, which contribute to the collaboration of scientists, reduce time and resource costs, and increase the transparency of research. It is characteristic that technologies that were created for other purposes are beginning to be increasingly used in biomedical research: computer modeling, data analysis, 3D printing, etc.
2. Cognitive And Physical Enhancements Practices
The development of artificial intelligence, neurotechnology, and robotics can provide new opportunities for creative activity. It is useful both for an individual and teams and for large spatially distributed teams. These technologies can be used to enhance the cognitive, sensory and physical abilities of a person. The emergence of new opportunities for thinking, perception and action will allow people to move on to solving more global and complex problems.
2.1 AI assistants and digital cognitive environments
AI assistants and digital cognitive environments are solutions to enhance the cognitive abilities of people using artificial intelligence technologies. AI assistants help to work with large amounts of information, plan activities more efficiently, and organize interactions with people. The solutions can both help in everyday life, and be used for scientific and professional purposes.
2.2 Sensory substitution and expansion systems
Sensory substitution and expansion systems are a branch of practices at the intersection of neuroscience, electronics, and information technology. They aim at expanding the human sensory range. Solutions can be used both to rehabilitate people suffering from sensory impairments and to empower people to new experiences. The emergence of new sensitivity can lead to changes in thinking and new directions of human activity.
2.3 Wearable and remotely controlled devices
Wearable and remotely controlled devices are a set of technological solutions that protect a person from injury during work, help restore health, and enhance physical capabilities. The approach of physically personal strengthening, adaptability and the ability to distinguish context is an alternative to full automation and exclusion of a person from technological processes.
