Tan Le is the Founder & CEO of EMOTIV, a bio-informatics company that has developed a breakthrough BCI technology, taking data directly from the brain and translating it to action. This means that brain waves can be used to control devices - such as keyboards, robots or wheelchairs - which is life altering for those with physical disabilities. Now, Tan is going beyond brain waves and working to classify thoughts and expressions with whole brain sensing. This can be used for early detection of neurological disorders such as autism, epilepsy, and others. Join Tan to learn about the secrets of unlocking the brain’s electrical code, and the potentials and pitfalls of this new research.
