Interested in learning about the latest developments in brain-computer interfacing? Then you might want to check out The Business of the Brain, a presentation being held tomorrow at the MIT/Stanford Venture Lab in California:
Brain-Computer Interfacing (BCI) promises a quantum leap in human interaction with technology–enabling our thoughts and emotions to control devices and enabling devices to know what we’re “really thinking” and feeling. Currently, there are more than 300 million brain toting people in the United States alone, making the opportunities for BCI products far-reaching.
BCI is bringing fresh and often unexpected perspectives to established industries, from entertainment and transportation to medicine and information systems. In this emergent phase of consumer-related BCI, innovators are redefining sleep management, gaming, user interfacing, courtroom evidence, and national security–and this is only the beginning.
For the first time, neuroscientists and savvy entrepreneurs, from a number of traditionally unrelated industries, are teaming up to move BCI technology out of research and medical labs and into our everyday lives. The Business of the Brain event will address the challenges and opportunities of this exciting revolution, including limitations of “wet” sensors, “noise” interference, government regulation, novel user interfaces, designing industry-specific BCI applications and the cost engineering of current applications.
The Business of the Brain Tuesday, May 18, 2010, 6pm – 8:30pm Arbuckle Lounge and Bishop Auditorium at Stanford Business School 518 Memorial Way, Stanford, CA Cost: $40
