This podcast's purpose is to bring together the field of neuroprosthetics/brain machine interfaces/brain implants in an understandable conversation about the current topics and breakthroughs.

We hope to replace needing to read scientific papers on new research in an easy to digest way.

People can share thoughts or ideas to facilitate 'idea sex' to make the field of brain implants a smaller and more personal space.

Jeremy Greenberg works for the nonprofit Future of Privacy Forum and has written a report about Privacy and the Connected Mind. The report is an extensive look into some of the challenges of privacy in the BCI space.

Top 3 Takeaways:

  • "A lot of the risks in this base really stem from the fact that neuro data is sensitive personal information. This is biological. It relates to mental privacy. These devices can be used to derive inferences about a person's likes their dislikes, their fears, emotions. So this is, this involves very sensitive and intimate details or inferences about an individual."

  • "I think that the involuntary nature of this data is something that is really concerning for privacy."
  • "The bill in Chile regulates neuro data as an organ under a Chilean organ transplant law."

1:00 "Do you want to introduce yourself because you're not a neuroscientist you're working in Washington DC non-profit. So who are you and how did you get into this writing?"

4:15 "So what is neurotech going to be used for, what are the potential applications? What are the potential risks?"

9:45 "Which areas are the most concerning?"

12:30 "So should we just ban neuro data? Are there any benefits, are there any upsides to this, and what are the upsides?"

15:00 " A country actually did this [setting up neuro rights] recently. Do you want to talk about Chile?"

18:00 "Why especially Chile, is that what caused them to do this?"

20:30 "So what are the takeaways? What should companies learn from this? What should they be doing in the future?"

25:45 "Are there any final thoughts, any takeaways that you wanted to mention?"
