About this event

As technology evolves you wonder what are the new ways we can interact with it? 

The input source is getting closer and closer to the brain. Alex Castillo will share how Neurosity empowers the mind with JavaScript and AI.

There is an evolution taking place in how humans interact with their computing devices. In 1985 when Apple introduced the Macintosh, consumers began using a mouse instead of only their keyboards to interact with their personal computers. Today, where would we be without a mouse, trackpad, or touchscreen? We are on a path, and at Neurosity, we are working on the next logical step; interacting with our devices through our minds.
