Sign up now for Hack the Brain Dublin!

Hack the Brain Dublin (June 9-11th 2017) is an immersive creative hackathon weekend in Science Gallery Dublin which aims to get artists, designers, neuroscientists, experimental psychologists, engineers and developers working together in transdisciplinary teams to develop ideas into prototype artworks, objects, inventions or interfaces which use or harness brain signals and brain-computer interface (BCI) technology.

Hack The Brain Prague 2016

“Hack the Brain Prague Hackathon” (HBPH 2016) has the specific aim of supporting co-operation between artists and scientists in BNCI (Brain/Neural Computer Interaction) related projects. The participants will work together in multidisciplinary teams on projects which they have chosen for themselves. During three days of intensive collaborative work they will be encouraged and supported to explore the possibilities and to find novel applications of BNCI systems. We welcome applications from anyone with a neuroscientific or artistic background. It will be an opportunity for you to learn something new about art or the human brain, learn something about yourself, acquire new technical skills and approaches, and also to meet new colleagues. The hackathon’s project based approach is designed to stimulate your imagination and expand ywour horizons. Join us and contribute to the success of this hackathon!

Hack the Brain Amsterdam 2016

Hack the Brain Amsterdam 2016 was about our health: ‘Hack yourself better (or worse)’.

This is the century to unravel the working mechanisms of our mysterious brains. Brain cells and structures as well as live neuronal activity and –connections can be visualised with techniques such as EEG, fMRI, and PET. While neuronal activity can be influenced by techniques like transcranial- and deep brain stimulation.

There is an increasing market for consumer brain-imaging devices. Open the papers or the tv-guide, browse through forums and podcasts: everybody is talking about the brain – how it works, how it develops, how we use it and how we can use it better. With our hackathons we invite anyone – from the most experienced bio-hacker to the curious neuroscientist and the hardcore programmer to the eccentric artist – to tackle their own brainy ideas.

Hack the Brain 2016 took place from 24-26 June at the Waag in Amsterdam.

Partners in Hack the Brain are Total Active Media, Donders Institute and University Twente. Waag Society will organize Hack de Brain 2016 within the framework of the EU programme ‘BrainHack – Bringing the arts and sciences of brain and neural computer interface together’, part of Horizon 2020.
