UppTalk Weekly is a popular science seminar series via Zoom where you get to enjoy interesting conversations and interdisciplinary panel discussions with researchers from Uppsala University every Tuesday at lunch. The conversations revolve around socially relevant topics and where you as an audience have the opportunity to ask questions to our researchers.

The title of this Upptalk is intentionally provocative, but also hopefully setting off a little warning bell in most of us. The research on Brain-computer interfaces has been developing rapidly, and we can see movies where people are doing the most amazing things with Brain-computer devices. But what is the reality behind these promises, and what do we really want to happen in the future of this research? Should we even be happy, that we still have a long way to go? What could happen if we could really see what You think?

The seminar will be in English
