Neuroprosthetics of today and tomorrow
Since the launch of the Obama BRAIN Initiative in 2013, which is being compared to the Human Genome Project, brain machine interface (BMI) technologies have become a part of public debate. E.g. Elon Musk is promoting Neuralink Inc. The EU is also supporting BMI research. By providing radical new tools and technologies, BMI has the potential to revolutionize neuroscience, medicine and society. This meeting has the aim to stimulate and excite BMI research and collaboration in Denmark and beyond.
