Mental Work: Moving Beyond Our Carbon Based Minds
Recording: Mental Work: Moving Beyond Our Carbon Based Minds, Mar 14, 2018

Speakers

A brain-computer interface (BCI) researcher and an experimental philosopher discuss the relationship between mind and machine and speculate on possible futures. Their collaboration led to the creation of the Mental Work exhibition, where guests control machines using nothing but their thoughts. Their work is an example of what's possible when research transcends boundaries between art and science, helping us to imagine the role of BCI in the future and discuss what is on the horizon.
