Brain-computer interfaces or Cybernic interfaces allow us with high precision read out brain signals, or nerve signals, that can be instantly communicated to a machine or a wearable, even an exoskeleton that you are wearing. Sending this brain signal to a receiving device belonging to a fellow human would practically mean enablement of telepathy. Using Cybernic interface to connect humans and robots, the robot would become a part of your body.
In this seminar we will invite to an inspirational talk and a panel discussion on the topic of brain-computer interfaces and Cybernics, as well as other advanced Cybernic technologies with regenerative medicine/implantable devices, or other novel means of remote interaction allowing us to exchange senses such as taste, smell, and tactile sensations.
