About This Presentation

Steve Jobs once famously said that a computer is “the most remarkable tool we’ve ever come up with…it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds“.

What if you could control computers with your mind?

Wonder no more: learn about a woman who’s building a revolutionary company that’s changing the future with thought controlled computing.

Muse is “changing the way the world thinks” by giving us insight into our own minds as well as changing how we interact with computers…. by controlling them with a single thought.

Imagine a future where you could control games, reduce stress, improve memory and concentration, and eventually to control devices directly with your mind.

In this video, Ariel Garten (CEO & Co-Founder, InteraXon) shared her story & perspectives at our Compute Midwest conference in 2013.
