|Margot||Hanley||Information Science||An Ethical Assessment of Commercial Brain Computer Interfaces||
As brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) become more mainstream in the market, it is essential to consider the ethical implications for individuals and society as a whole. While BCIs have the potential to revolutionize the treatment of cognitive and sensory motor conditions, they also introduce pressing ethical issues around values such as autonomy and agency, dignity, privacy and security, and fairness. In my PhD dissertation, I aim to develop a comprehensive understanding of the ethics of commercial BCI in four parts: 1) exploring the production of commercial BCIs, 2) analyzing the technology and applications of BCIs, 3) examining ethical and conceptual issues, and 4) developing policy considerations for BCIs.
