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.
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 is envisioned as an open scalable platform, a platform that seamlessly integrates an ever-increasing number of sensors, actuation and computation nodes, and storage, communication and energy functionality.
These will be located on, in, or around the human body acting in symbiosis with the functions provided by the body itself. Its functionality will eventually grow beyond pure health and wellness.
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?
