The Mind-bending Future
Scott’s presentation will be on The Mind-bending Future. In the future, you will have the power to control things around you, just by thinking about it. This is the potential of brain-machine interface. BCI provides a view into the future when everything from autonomous vehicles, robots to heavy machinery can be controlled with ease and finesse through thought alone. This isn’t the future of science fiction. This and other mind-bending realities is what we should prepare to expect. Learn about this and much more when Scott takes us on a journey into a mind-bending future that’s much closer than we may think.
