Prerequisite knowledge

Audiences with familiarity of the underlying principles of AI technology, and an interest in complex applications of machine learning.

What you'll learn

An understanding that non-invasive neural interfaces are finally ready to be used by developers — no neuroscience expertise required — thanks to rapid advances in AI and machine learning.


During the past decade, significant advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning have expanded how we communicate and interact with the world. There are more screens and devices in our lives, but our ability to control these devices hasn’t kept pace. While controversial projects involving invasive brain-machine interfaces have been grabbing headlines, this technology is still decades away from exiting the lab and changing how we interact with the digital world for the better. In this session, Co-Founder Patrick Kaifosh, PhD, outlines a future where we look up at the world instead of down at our phones. With the launch of the CTRL-labs developer kit (CTRL-kit), non-invasive neural interfaces are finally here, and the possibilities are almost limitless.
