With the recent developments in brain computer interfaces over the last few years, it's starting to look more and more likely that there's going to be new products being built that will allow people to control machines with just their thoughts. Our goal is to take a group of experts with diverse backgrounds and have an intimate conversation about the opportunities and risks associated with Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs). We also dispel myths about what BCIs are actually of capable of in the medium term and we help inspire and inform what life could look like in a world where Brain Computer Interfaces are more commonplace. Whether it's engineering, design, or neuroscience, we have gathered an all star panel to fully explore every angle of this fast approaching reality.
