Our brain is at the core of everything we do, from the every-day decisions we make to the epic emotions we feel when we fall in love. And neurotechnologies–especially those that, being digital, are eminently scalable, and that, being non-invasive, pose few if any negative side-effects–are poised to become ubiquitous, pervasive. It shouldn’t be a surprise that individuals and institutions worldwide are spending over $1.5 billion a year in web-based, mobile and biometrics-based brain health solutions, or that non-invasive neurotech patent filings are soaring in number — from 800 in 2010 to 1,600 in 2014—showing variety of applications, from car-based sensors detecting and minimizing inattentive driving, to virtual reality systems discerning consumer’s cognitive and emotional responses, to audio headsets that can detect one’s mood and adjust music accordingly.
How can we harness the opportunity to better monitor and enhance our most precious asset–our brains and minds—and to improve our lives? Keep exploring the Summit Agenda
