Title: “Mind Your Privacy: Navigating the Neuro-Data Dilemma”
Abstract: The rapid advancement in neurotechnology has raised significant ethical, legal, and privacy concerns regarding the collection and use of brain data. This talk will explore the critical issues surrounding the protection of cognitive liberty, the ownership of neural information, and the potential misuse of brain data. As neurodevices become increasingly intertwined with our daily lives, it is imperative to establish a robust regulatory framework that safeguards individual privacy. The discussion will address current regulatory gaps and propose strategic solutions to ensure the privacy and security of brain data in the evolving landscape of neuroscience and technology.
