Entering the interface in DOX 24.4

ciantCould neurophysiological and BCI (Brain Computer Interface) tools already control our mind? And could we vice versa already build an individual virtual reality using BCI systems, able to fulfill all users' desires? And what exactly users actually desire from them?

These will be the frame questions of the Friday 24 symposium with dr Aleksander Väljamäe (NGM lab), Pavel Smetana (CIANT) and artist Ivor Diosi.

Besides their ongoing and past projects, they will also present wider context of brain-computer interaction research and its use in arts, politics, society and mind development. Feel invited for the mind check...
