What you'll learn

  • Explore brain-machine interface (BMI) technology and CTRL-Labs's transformative and noninvasive neural interface approach


Despite the common fear that AI-powered machines will replace humans, the emerging—and more hopeful—reality is that AI will augment people with new technologies combining human and machine intelligence. Thomas Reardon discusses advances and challenges in multidisciplinary research and development, spanning computational neuroscience, biophysics, electrical engineering, statistics, and human-computer interaction as well as AI and machine learning.

Expanding his keynote, Reardon offers an overview of brain-machine interface (BMI) technology and shares CTRL-Labs’s transformative and noninvasive neural interface approach. Along the way, he discusses the near-term opportunities for practical applications that will soon revolutionize daily life and the industries they touch.
