Brain-Computer Interfaces

David Blodgett, The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

As computing power evolves, new ways of interacting with systems are emerging, turning human sensory experiences into viable computing interfaces. How effective are today’s interfaces and what might the future hold? Watch MIT Technology Review Senior Editor for Biomedicine Antonio Regalado and David Blodgett, Chief Scientist at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, discuss this topic in detail.
