Neurotechnologies with Everyone

Develop Ethical Guidance for Open Neurotechnology.

Join us on November 5th, 7pm EST to help draft ethical guidance for the open neurotechnology community!

This event will be hosted on our Discord server to bridge professionals from the Annual Meeting of the International Neuroethics Society with our growing community of DIY neurotechnology practitioners.

Workshop Description (6pm)

Throughout the past decade, do-it-yourself (DIY) neurotechnology communities have expanded as a result of increased accessibility of direct-to-consumer neurotechnologies and emergence of open-source software infrastructure including BCI2000, Brainflow, and Brains@Play. While the ethical, legal, and social implications of DIY neurotechnologies have been examined in detail, their communities have received little guidance on ethical innovation beyond that offered to academic and commercial counterparts. As DIY communities expand participation in neurotechnology across the global population, what guidance might the neuroethics community offer? This workshop will introduce participants to the state-of-the-art in DIY neurotechnology and gather preliminary guidance for the DIY community.
