Joel Murphy of OpenBCI will give a "neuro-powered" talk about his company and mission and what it means to democratize in the field of brain-computer interface (BCI). Joel will wear an OpenBCI Ultracortex headset that will read his EEG (brainwaves) and EMG (muscle movements) and allow him to control the presentation and slides through it. He will showcase examples of applications that members of its growing community have created and talk about the potential applications of BCI in gaming. A volunteer from the audience will be invited to do a live demo using the headset to control a robotic hand on stage!
