Our Goals

Our two primary long-term goals are to protect the rights of citizens and promote ethical guidelines for innovation.

NeuroRights Protection:

The NeuroRights Initiative’s first goal is to protect the rights of citizens from potentially harmful neurotechnologies.

Action: NRI works to incorporate the five NeuroRights or equivalent protections into existing human rights documents throughout the world. 

Technocratic Oath:

The NeuroRights Initiative’s second goal is to pre-empt the creation of harmful neurotechnologies and AI algorithms.

Action: The NRI is drafting an ethical framework for entrepreneurs, physicians, and researchers developing Neurotechnology and AI called the Technocratic Oath. Much as doctors must follow the Hippocratic oath, those who develop and administer neurotechnology would follow the “technocratic oath”.
