The Scary and the Awesome of Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) – A Trending in Education Halloween Special

In an emerging Trending in Education Halloween tradition, we take time to talk brains, BCIs in particular.

Building on our recent episode about Data Privacy, the team dives into an exploration of recent news about Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs). Over the summer, researchers at Carnegie Mellon demonstrated that non-invasive BCIs could enable the generation of simple commands in computers through use of helmets or other wearable tech. No surgery or implanting of chips required.

We take a moment to celebrate the levels of access technology like this will open up before digging into some scarier hypotheticals that tie back to topics of cyber security, ethics, and informed consent. Oh and we talk a bit about how the Terminator’s back once again on a very special Halloween Extra.
