Brain-Computer interface: Community Conversation Spokane
April 10, 2018
Facilitated by Dr. Kevin Measor, PhD, Gonzaga University
The ability to record brain activity and use this information to control devices like computers, wheelchairs, and brain stimulators is a goal of brain-computer interface (BCI) research. With this new technology comes great promise to improve people's lives, but will the introduction of BCI devices into medicine and beyond raise ethical concerns?
