Beyond AI: Brain Augmentation and the Future of Interfaces

Beyond AI: Brain Augmentation and the Future of Interfaces

The keynote addresses at Finovate conferences are more than just an opportunity to catch up on the coolest conversations in fintech.

From author Tim Urban, who delivered a thrilling presentation on AI and the prospects for superintelligence, to futurist Rohit Talwar who discussed the relationship between AI and the future of work, our keynotes help put fintech in the larger context of some of the most impactful technological trends of our time.

This year at FinovateEurope will be no exception. For our opening keynote, we will feature Tan Le, founder and CEO of EMOTIV, for a conversation on artificial intelligence, brain augmentation, and more that you won’t want to miss.

Check out this excerpt from her TedGlobal presentation from 2010.

Communication between people, on the other hand, is far more complex and a lot more interesting because we take into account so much more than what is explicitly expressed. We observe facial expressions, body language, and we can intuit feelings and emotions from our dialogue with one another. This actually forms a large part of our decision-making process.

Our vision is to introduce this whole new realm of human interaction into human-computer interaction so that computers can understand not only what you direct it to do, but it can also respond to your facial expressions and emotional experiences. And what better way to do this than by interpreting the signals naturally produced by our brain, our center for control and experience.

EMOTIV is a bio-informatics and technology firm, founded in 2011 in Australia and currently headquartered in San Francisco, California. The company develops and manufacturers wearable electroencephalogy (EEG) products designed for a variety of use cases: from enhancing performance and well-being to supporting brain controlled technologies to helping businesses conduct consumer research.

In her presentation at FinovateEurope next weekThe NeuroGeneration – How the New Era in Brain Augmentation is Revolutionizing the Way You Think, Work, Lead, and Live, Le will explain how automation and AI can serve as allies en route to a new, extended, augmented human organism.

To catch Le’s presentation and several more insightful takes on the role of technology in our lives, be sure to join us at FinovateEurope 2019 next week at London’s Tobacco Dock. For more information, including how to pick up your ticket and reserve your spot, visit our registration page today.
