The human brain is the most complex machine on earth. As it powers our most important functions - cognitive ability, perception & emotion regulation - researchers for many years have performed experiments that aim to push the boundaries on understanding of how the brain works. One significant outcome of these efforts are brain interfaces, which provide a communication pathway between our brains and an external devices.
In this talk, I give an overview of brain interfaces, going beyond science fiction and delving into its current applications, how to get started with neuro technologies, and opportunities for impact when we merge advancements in software engineering & artificial intelligence with problems in this domain. If you’re curious about what is possible when we leverage data from recorded brain activity, then this talk is for you!
This talk was first presented at an internal event at Microsoft Vancouver on May 5th, 2021.
