DETAILS:
Merging human beings with machines via artificially intelligent brain-computer interfaces is a major scientific achievement of the current decade. It holds the key to countless new therapeutic applications from using thoughts to manoeuvre robotic limbs to controlling psychiatric symptoms. This project aims at exploring, identifying and translating a range of potential postoperative-related vulnerabilities introduced by AI brain-computer interfaces, especially those related to the notion of agency, autonomy, responsibility, estrangement, identity, privacy, and ownership. This project will develop new knowledge around understanding the phenomenology of brain-computer interfaces, but as well harm prevention in the future use of AI applications in medicine, cognitive science and neurology.
