Nothing is more complex or holds as much promise as the human brain. By studying this system, we could unlock its great potential and train our minds for optimal performance. Brain wearables can accelerate the study of the brain by collecting data for analysis. In a recent IoT News article, How ‘brain wearables’ can address 21st century needs, Tan Le, Founder and CEO, EMOTIV discusses the potential benefits and challenges of brain wearables.
Whether it is helping people handle stress better or helping relieve brain-related illnesses, the applications of brain wearables could help people in ways like never before. However, there are a lot of privacy and ethical concerns that must be discussed as this technology advances. Tan provided insight on this topic at the annual SXSW Conference and Festival, March 10-19, 2017. The session, Brain Wearables, was included in the IEEE Tech for Humanity Series at SXSW.
