Brain-computer Interfaces: Hacking Wetware
blog comments powered by Disqus
Once existing only in science fiction, brain-computer interface technologies have advanced rapidly over the past decade. Research institutions are conducting experiments which just a few years ago were science fiction; legal scholars are examining the privacy and evidenciary ramifications; advertisers are using them to test out campaigns; and the commercial price-point for certain technologies has become attractive enough for consumer-products and amateur researchers to perform wetware hacking.
This session will provide an overview of a complex and rapidly growing field, which is an important part of the technological future, and will touch the areas mentioned above. In addition, a demonstration of some of the currently available commercial technology is planned.
