In 2020, Elon Musk announced an update to Neuralink—his startup centered around brain-computer interfaces (BCIs). BCIs, like those proposed by Musk, are an umbrella term for devices that detect, amplify, stimulate, and translate brain activity into usable neuroinformation. Emerging and future uses of BCIs span from use cases in the employment context, to those firmly rooted in health. In this session, we will explore potential privacy and security risks associated with such devices, benefits of their use, the sensitivity of the data they collect, and principles for safeguarding neuroinformation.
