NeuraFutures Lecture: Fiction and Science of Brain Interfacing

Building on 15 years of our experience in designing and creating the most cutting edge interaction – fusion between the brain and computer, brain-computer interfaces, in our project NeuraFutures we are touching upon implanting memories, reading your dreams while you sleep and communicating a thought between two different people throughout the continents.

We analyzed 450+ books, movies, TV shows to give our audience a better picture of what brain computer interfaces are and are not. From science to science fiction, from 1641’s brain in a jar to 2021’s Rick and Morty’s memory transfer helmet.

We explore together with our audience the multitude of scenarios, use cases, form-factors of some of the most futuristic systems imagined by humans over the past 500 years to establish how close we are to those systems and try to answer THAT VERY IMPORTANT question – if you really need to get that implant tomorrow.Please check the website of the project to learn more: https://www.neurafutures.com

About the
Festival

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

The Cambridge Science Festival was founded by and is produced by the MIT Museum.
