The Human IntraNet

Organised by Leuven MindGate in cooperation with imec.

Once computers were so large that they could fill a room. Then we got tabletop models. Today, we just carry them around in our pocket. The next logical step: make computers part of our bodies. 

The Human IntraNet

27 November 2017
16h30 - 20h30

This will be the era of the ‘Human IntraNet’: the network of sensors that we will carry on and in our body, expanding our knowledge and capacities. It will change the way humans interact with the surrounding (augmented) world by boosting the human input-output modalities and performance.

But what about privacy? Will we still have freedom of thought? Can we secure this technology enough and still be able to share the data with the right people?
