Conor will be talking about the state of the art of brain-computer interfacing (BCI) and the larger field of human-computer interfacing technologies. He will talk about his experiences launching and building OpenBCI. He will also discuss his thoughts on the future of BCI, artificial intelligence (AI), and augmented reality (AR).


Conor has a mixed background of art, design, and engineering. As an undergrad engineering student at Columbia he focused on computer graphics and virtual environments. While pursuing an MFA in Design and Technology at Parsons, Conor discovered creative coding and brain-computer interfacing (BCI). Since then, Conor has been building OpenBCI, a company dedicated to open source innovation of human-computer interface technologies. His current interests lie at the intersection of BCI, artificial intelligence (AI), and augmented reality (AR).
