The documentary explores what it means to be human by following the incredible journeys of three people with implantable brain interfaces. Directed and produced by artist and futurist Taryn Southern and Elena Gaby, the film prominently features Cleveland Veteran Bill Kochevar and the cutting-edge work of the Cleveland Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Center at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center (UH).
Paralyzed below his shoulders in a bicycling accident, Kochevar is believed to be the first person with quadriplegia to have arm and hand movements restored with the help of two temporarily implanted technologies. The film, which premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, explores the medical, personal and ethical questions that arise as human and artificial intelligence become one as a means to fight disease or overcome injury.
A panel discussion with filmmakers Taryn Southern and Elena Gaby, and Cleveland FES Center researchers A Bolu Ajiboye, PhD, Robert F Kirsch, PhD, Jonathan Miller, MD, and Dustin Tyler, PhD, will follow the film.

Cuyahoga Community College invites you to participate in a powerful learning experience that creates insight into the chronic crisis that consumes so many working poor families.
The poverty simulation experience is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. It is a simulation, not a game. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people.
CAPS exists to:
Promote Poverty Awareness
During the simulation, role-play a month in poverty and experience low-income families' lives.
After the simulation, you will unpack your learning and brainstorm community change.
Inspire Local Change
Together, you can be a voice to end poverty in your family, friends and community.
