The event will begin with introductory talks on the topic of 'Neural Interfaces & the Future of Gaming' from the perspective of both gaming and neuroscience.
There will then be a Q&A session where audience members can ask questions to our speakers and panellists.
Participants will be moved into breakout groups to learn about each other's work and to discuss future applications for neural interfaces and gaming, opportunities for and barriers to collaboration, and ethical issues that could arise in the future.
After this, there will be an open plenary discussion with all participants.
A recent Royal Society report, iHuman, explored the long term potential and risks of neural interface technologies. This workshop will explore questions such as: what opportunities for collaboration exist between gaming companies and scientists working on neural interfaces? What are the ethical implications of using neural interfaces in gaming?
