Event Details

In a three-day creative hackathon Hack the Brain bring together people from all walks of life. Starting from curiosity and unanswered questions they will hack into our brains with ideas on health, care and quality of life. Participants can work with different EEG-type techniques to measure, visualize and interpret their own brain activity – live.

But Hack the Brain goes further! What can you do with brainwaves? Can we measure happiness, health, love? Can we influence the brain to improve our quality of life? How healthy is your brain? Does your brain care? And what about your second brain, the one in your gut system? In the weekend of 24-26 June 2016 ideas will be formed, obstacles will be tackled and prototypes will be presented.
Apart from hacking the brain participants and speakers also touch on different ethical and philosophical aspects. Next to the actual hacking, there will be keynotes and discussions with the experts on the Friday Evening. The hackathon will end with public pitches and reflection of the teams on the Sunday afternoon. Both will be accessible to a wide audience and in the scenic Theatrum Anatomicum at the Waag.
