In this episode Paradromics founder and CEO and NeuroTech Pub host, Matt Angle, discusses ethical considerations around brain-computer interfaces. Our guests are Tim Brown, Leigh Hochberg, Sydney Cash, and Amanda Pustilnik. A central theme in the discussions will be how neuroethics differ from traditional medical ethics or bioethics and what we can draw from other fields and experiences to prepare for a world where BCI is more prevalent and more powerful.
