The Future of Technology: The melding of humans and machines
In the future, new technologies will offer radical help for everyday living. Disabled persons will be the first to profit from this trend. The team surrounding Professor Millán develops devices that operate via thought control. With the “Brain-Machine Interface”, they hope to give physically challenged individuals control of their bodies. The technology charts brain activity for use in computer-supported processes. This makes it possible, for example, to control wheelchairs using thoughts alone. In his talk, Prof. Millán explains the theoretical aspects of this future technology.
