Dr. Nataliya Kosmyna
Dr. Nataliya Kosmyna, research scientist at the Fluid Interfaces Group at MIT Media Lab, is building on 15 years of experience in designing and creating the most cutting edge of an interaction possible today: brain-computer interface (BCI). BCI is based on the observation that any action, thought, movement, intent of a person can be captured by measuring electrical activity of the brain. In Kosmyna's research the science fictionesque idea of reading our thoughts through machines becomes very much adaptable to real life. Combining neuroscience with new technologies, Dr. Kosmyna has worked on the development of solutions to control drones, robots and household appliances through brain activity.
Dr. Kosmyna obtained her Ph.D in at the Université of Grenobles Alpes, gave 2 TEDx Talks and won multiple awards for her work, among which is L'Oréal-UNESCO Women in Science award in 2016. She is also interested in closed-loop systems using real-time biofeedback to enhance and augment human performance, particularly attention and focus. In 2016 she also created her first start-up called Braini, for consulting in the domains of Artificial Intelligence for Cognitive Enhancement as well as Neuroscience.
3 Fragen an Dr. Nataliya Kosmyna
Wir freuen uns auf die Keynote "Brain Sensing Technologies: From Science Fiction to Reality" von Dr. Nataliya Kosmyna und haben ihr zur Vorbereitung drei Fragen gestellt.
Worüber werden Sie bei Mind the Progress sprechen?
I will talk about the Mind and the Progress we have already made with its decoding - and why it matters for our evolution as species but also for AI advancement.
Auf welche digitale Zukunftsvision freuen Sie sich und worauf können Sie verzichten?
I am looking for the digital future where we are in charge of our attention, performance and mental wellbeing. I can live without everything but access to information.
Wen würden Sie gerne einmal auf einer Mind-the-Progress-Bühne sehen?
I would love to see younger generation speaking out about their vision of the Progress - children as they are the generation that is growing up on the tech we have not been exposed to at schools and homes when young but also they consume it in all different ways.
