Design for the Brain

Main Stage

Wed - Sept 22

Track 3

11:30 pm EDT

With recent developments in brain computer interfaces, it's appearing more and more likely that a new generation of interfaces will be enabling people to control machines with simply their thoughts. As this technology begins to take shape, we'd love to start an open and honest conversation about how this new technology will not only shape the world as a whole but more specifically the world of design. How will this impact different design industries? What will UX design controlled by your thoughts look like? Our goal is for attendees to come away with a richer perspective of both awesome and scary aspects of this next phase in interface technology and to start thinking more about how this could be impacting their profession as designers.
