Neurotech at scale in the Metaverse

Abstract: Recent rapid growth in the neurotechnology sector and in brain-computer interface research could create wonders. It may also presage pitfalls, not only for end users of these technologies, but for many scientists and startups whose efforts risk running down blind alleys and into dead ends. In this talk I will survey the landscape of emerging brain-machine interfaces, with an emphasis on building and proving out consumer scale technologies and how these might (and do) interact with virtual worlds and robotics.

Bio: Dr. Graeme Moffat is a co-founder and scientist with System2 Neurotechnology. Prior to this, he served as Chief Scientist and VP of Regulatory Affairs at Interaxon, makers of the world’s bestselling electroencephalography platform, Muse, as Chief Scientist with Sciencescape (later Chan-Zuckerberg Meta), and as Managing Editor of Frontiers in Neuroscience. He is a Senior Fellow at the Munk School of Public Policy (at the University of Toronto), a member of the board of the Ontario Centre of Innovation, and an advisor to the OECD’s neurotechnology policy initiative.
