On November 19, 2020, we will hold the 10th NTC Symposium of the Neurotechnology Center at Columbia University, titled Brain-Computer Interfaces—Innovation, Security, and Society. This will be a multidisciplinary symposium and is organized by the NeuroTechnology Center at Columbia University and the NeuroRights Initiative at Columbia University, with support from the Columbia IBM Center for Blockchain and Data Transparency and the Columbia Data Science Institute.
Due to Covid-19, this will be an online symposium. The conference will be streamed live on YouTube!
The symposium will feature talks from interdisciplinary leaders in brain computer-interface innovation, data privacy and security, and ethical technology. We will examine the state-of-the-art in brain-computer interface development and address its key security challenges and societal implications. It is our hope that this meeting will foster a multi-perspective discussion on the progression in the brain-computer interface field. This interdisciplinary meeting of the minds can foster new ideas as we examine the long-term impacts of these technologies, for the scientific community and more broadly, for humanity as a whole.
