    Neuro-Driven Applications: Leading Edge or Bleeding Edge?

    Will the Matrix soon be here? Come join us to hear Stanley Yang, CEO of NeuroSky, discuss the emerging field of neuro-driven applications. These apps are software and hardware systems operated by having users "think" their instructions. Under the hood, neuro-driven apps rely on pattern theory to extract meaning from EEG and other non-invasively measurable neurological signals.

    Neurosky is a leading startup in this field, and its technology has recently been written up in the Economist and IEEE Spectrum.
