Video duration
leading hackers and researchers
from the worldwide hackerspace,
universitiy, and DIY artist community,
explain current technological
possibilites in BCI,

and show ways
to use open source
hardware and software
for hackers, makers, artists,
personal development, citizen science,

providing a framework
for alternative culture and free expression
balancing the soon coming commercial expansion
in "Neurogaming", "Neuromarketing" and "eHealth"

talk will illustrate
the mutually beneficial relationship
between "hacking" and science,
with the example of hacking BCIs,

as well as an overview into the new field
of "BCI Mind-Hacking", such as exploiting
remote consumer Neuroheadsets,
and Data-Mining the human-brain
for sensitive data during casual use.

<a href="">
31C3-Assembly MindHacker-NeuroVillage</a>

the talk is envisioned with 3-4 speakers:

1 x hacker / artist / visionary (15 years chaos-angel)
1 x university BCI Phd-candidate (Neuroscience)
1 x electronics engineer working 40 years in EEG

and can therefore include
various aspects of this topic:
artistic, political, scientific,
technological, instructional, etc ...

talk will also illustrate
the mutually beneficial relationship
between "hacking" and science,
with the example of hacking BCI systems.

Exploiting consumer brain-computer-interfaces
A talk about future applications of consumer EEG devices, reflecting security risks, such as ways to leak private user information (health conditions, PIN-codes, known people and locations, EEG biometrics), and how to avoid this from happening. We introduce different exploit approaches that also have been proposed by academia. We will evaluate security risks by considering a few, conceivable scenarios coming up the next decade.

Finally, a call for participation:
we would like to discuss a possible open-source platform to exchange EEG data anonymously, suggested neurofeedback protocols, as well as machine learning powered EEG pattern simulations, covering some of the most prominent cognitive processes.
