Brain-Computer Interfaces

As long as we have had API’s (application programming interfaces), I have always claimed then we should design applications that may eventually talk directly to the brain. Even though I have been saying this for 10 years, I was surprised that my co-workers are still freaked out by the idea. Thus I had to check out the NESTA breakfast (22nd September 2011) who’s speakers included Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading and Emlyn Clay, Director of Openvivo and Dr Anders Sandberg, Future of Humanity Institute, Oxford University.

The full video of the event is worth checking out.
