Dr Adrien Rapeaux explores the current landscape of neural interfaces


This event is part of a series of lightning lectures for the Royal Society’s 2021 Summer Science digital showcase.

As global technology advances at a rapid rate, the race is on to develop new and commercially available neural, or brain-computer, interfaces. Allowing direct communication between a brain and an external device, companies such as Neuralink, Kernel and NIRX have all thrown their hats into the ring.

From devices that can read thoughts for hands free typing and computer control to interfaces that can evaluate emotions, these developments could have a huge impact on how we interact with technology and also each other. Dr Adrien Rapeaux explores the current landscape by looking at recent advances in these technologies as well as the potential impact they could have on our future.
