In this episode of DevOps Speakeasy, we speak with Sean M Phillips @SeanMiPhillips, a senior software engineer at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory specializing in custom data visualization. A Java Champion and multiple Duke’s Choice Award winner, Sean’s research and skills span cislunar space defense, brain-computer interfaces, and advanced cyber-physical effects.
The future of human machine teaming will harness the human mind in ways that were the dreams of the past’s science fiction. The technology is here now but researchers are challenged to understand the incredible complexity of the human brain. Functional brain computer interfaces are now a nascent but rapidly accelerating field. With physical technology becoming a reality, governments, corporations and research facilities are racing to find ways to understand how the human mind can be harnessed for good. One of the many challenges of Brain Computer Interfaces is decoding and interpreting the hyper-dimensional signals that come from a human brain’s connected neurons. A critical method for understanding this decoding is visualization. This keynote discussion will describe what makes a brain computer interface possible, how it can be utilized and what the current limitations are. A software demonstration will be provided which demonstrates receiving, organizing and visualizing decoded neuron data with dimensions well beyond 3D. Animated visualizations will be provided which provide insight into the brain’s actions and how such a technology could be used for good and the betterment of mankind in the future.
