This is the first of our Neural Implant roundtable where we talk with former guests Doug Clinton of Loup Ventures, Manfred Franke of Neuronoff, and Avery Bedows who founded the neural implant blog, the Substrate.
This podcast focuses on the relationship between the public and
the neurotechnology in the modern world. The key questions
concerning the podcasts involve what, when, how and why
should neurotechnology be discussed in public.
~0min - introductions and explaining their experiences that
could provide perspective to the
~7min - how neural stimulation can promote healing similar to a pill in medicine.
11:30 - the participants discuss increased investment in neural technologies.
~20 min - Discussions of the difficulties of getting answers from brain scans and transition to regulations posed by the FDA. They agree that people must gain trust through witnessing other people consume neural technologies for the idea to gain popularity.
This was a great show and the format went well. I think there will be more of these types of shows in the future.
