Brain-Computer Interfaces – Upptalk lunch seminar June, 2, 2020

The technology centre at Uppsala University – Upptech – has started a series of short moderated lunch seminars and panel debates on research that is being performed at the University’s technical faculty. The seminars are held under the label “Upptalk” and are to be popular presentations, so that they should be interesting even to non-experts in the field. The seminars are given through Zoom.

I was very glad to be invited to participate in one of these seminars, which will be held on June 2, 2020, between 12.00 and 12.45 (ca). In the seminar I will give a critical review of the current state in the research around Brain-Computer Interfaces and not least, what may lie in the future, and is it good or maybe even something to be a bit afraid of? The abstract:

The title of this Upptalk is intentionally provocative, but also hopefully setting off a little warning bell in most of us. The research on Brain-computer interfaces has been developing rapidly, and we can see movies where people are doing the most amazing things with Brain-computer devices. But what is the reality behind these promises, and what do we really want to happen in the future of this research? Should we even be happy, that we still have a long way to go? What could happen if we could really see what You think?

The seminars are free of charge, but in order to participate in the seminar you have to register on Upptech’s Upptalk page. The remaining seminars are also listed on the same page.

I hope that you will like the seminar, and I look forward to see you there.
