#MKW17 - Machines that read your mind
Wed. 3 May 2017, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEST
Machines that read your mind
Moving a prosthetic limb with thoughts alone. A bionic brain part that restores memory. Brain scans that reveal your capacity for criminal behaviour. Our ever-increasing power to read the human mind will raise new opportunities, new problems. Come along for a lively evening of discussion and demonstration.
Proudly presented by The Brain Dialogue, and hosted by the National Vision Research Institute, Australian College of Optometry and the University of Melbourne.
