Symposium on Creating Future Super Soldier-Leaders 

The University of North Georgia, a senior military college, is pleased to announce a symposium on Creating Future Super Soldier-Leaders.

This topic will explore how the application of science and technology develops soldier-leaders to become ready and able to operate on the battlefield of 2035. We will examine how the following advances can contribute to the physical, cognitive and emotional development of the soldier-leader:

  • Bioscience
  • Neuroscience
  • Embedded Technology
  • Man-machine Learning
  • Augmented Learning
  • Enhanced Resilience

We will also examine the initiatives of the U.S. Army and other international ground forces, and what future impact those initiatives may have on adaptive leadership and ethical decision-making.
