Hacking the Brain

Presented by

Moran Cerf, Neuroscientist & Business Professor @Northwestern University I Eddie Doyle, Global Security Strategist

About this talk

The ability to implant thoughts and manipulate a person’s behavior may be closer than we believe. Professor Moran Cerf, Neuroscientist and Business Professor at the Kellogg School of Management, at Northwestern University (and a former hacker), will discuss how advances in artificial intelligence (AI) could be used to control human thoughts. This month, Talking iTech with Eddie Doyle will interview Prof. Cerf to discuss how: • Neuroscience can be used to change human behavior • AI is affecting our futures • We can program ourselves for success? Or program others for failure? Shocking as it may seem, hacking brains to “embed” thoughts and ideas into our mind may have already been here? Nation-states using cyber warfare to influence outcomes, such as impacting democratic elections, is just one example. Join us in September to see where Science Fiction meets a new reality.
