Neurotech Future conference

April 22, 2021 @ 9:00 am – April 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

A Neurotech Future is a collaborative project between the Queen's University Centre for Neuroscience Studies, the Surveillance Studies Centre, and the Faculty of Law. This meeting brings together a diverse group of perspectives to discuss the technological, ethical, legal and policy issues surrounding emerging neurotechnologies.

Neurotechnology has the potential to improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations with neurological differences and diseases and augment brain function. However, with these benefits come the potential for inadvertent harms such as degrading privacy and personal agency and forms of surveillance that could promote discrimination and inequality. Join us as we explore these issues and ways to approach this rapidly evolving technology and industry. Register Here.
