The Future of Consciousness: Ethics in Neuro-Tech, Interactive Brain Augmentation, & the Hive Mind at the Games for Change Conference

July 16 2022
Description: Join us in a discourse around advancements of neurotech, with the goal of defining a set of design principles towards an ethical, safe, and inclusive transition towards singularity. As more applications and technologies are developed to read our brain signals and stimulate our experience, we step into another world of widened possibilities. We will be discussing the emotional/psychological issues of reality & perception, the power of the medium as far as it distributes capital & governance, privacy & data rights issues, as well as the transhumanist, evolutionary and philosophical implications of the medium.
