Brain-computer interfaces: ethical opportunities and challenges
This event Free of charge
new location! Brand new capital one cafe: 333 westlake ave N
Facilitated by eran klein, oregon health &sciences; portland va medical center; csne
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? What brain data is private? Will wearing or implanting a brain device cause stigma? Who will have access to expensive BCI devices?
A well-regarded speaker and neurologist-philosopher, Dr. Klein will guide us through a discussion of some ethical implications of this emerging neurotechnology.
