On May 26th, 2021, we will hold the 12th NTC Symposium of the Neurotechnology Center at Columbia University, titled Noninvasive Neural Interfaces: Ethical Considerations. This will be a multidisciplinary symposium and is organized by the NeuroTechnology Center at Columbia University and the NeuroRights Initiatve at Columbia University in collaboration with Facebook Reality Lab.
Due to Covid-19, this will be an online symposium.
The symposium will feature talks from interdisciplinary leaders in noninvasive neural interface innovation, data privacy and security, and ethical technology. We will examine the state-of-the-art in neural 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.
