«What happens when technology becomes more advanced than the technologist? Christopher Lafayette, founder of, posed the question at the end of his keynote address at the current IME West show in Anaheim, CA, stating that technology has caught up to the same intelligence level as the people creating it.»

«In his presentation, “Medical Technology within the Metaverse – The Fundamental Shift,” he discussed the current and future state of immersive medtech in the metaverse and what it means for vendors, technologists, and medical practitioners.
