Processing Community Day 2020

Processing Community Day NYC is a volunteer-organized event held annually in cooperation with the Processing Foundation and hundreds of other locally-organized collaborators around the world. It is a non-profit, community day, that brings together activists, artists, designers, teachers, programmers and students to learn and connect. This year it was hosted by the New School with additional funding from Code + Liberal Arts at Eugene Lang.

Heidi spoke on a panel with Sean Montgomery (Founder EmotiBit), Conor Russomanno (CEO and Co-Founder Open BCI), and Guillermo Bernal (MIT Media Lab, Fluid Interfaces) about brain-computer interfaces, the pros and cons of open-source data/tools, the ethics behind using personal data, and where they see augmented cognition and biotechnology in the next 10-25 years.
