Title: Mental state monitoring using physiological signals to evaluate food experience, reduce delays in head-mounted displays, and everything in between.
Short Bio: Anne-Marie Brouwer is senior scientist at TNO Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research, Soesterberg). Anne-Marie studied experimental psychology and obtained her PhD on eye-hand coordination research in 2002 at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam. Following post-docs at the Max Planck Institute in Tübingen and the University of Rochester (NY) she started working at TNO in 2007. Her main topic of research became BCI and using brain and other physiological signals as potential sources of information about an individual’s cognitive and emotional state. Anne-Marie works on basic research projects for different parties, such as basic science funds, defense, and food industry. She is dedicated to explore the added value of physiological measures, connecting lab and real life studies, and be open about the challenges that still exist as well as finding ways to cope with these.

Title: On the ethics of symbiotic interaction design: No need to say ’Ni’
Short Bio: Pim Haselager obtained master degrees in philosophy and psychology, and received his PhD in 1995 at the Free University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Currently he is associate professor (Theoretical Cognitive Science) at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, at the Radboud University Nijmegen. His research focuses on the implications of Cognitive neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence for human self-understanding. He investigates the ethical and societal implications of research in, and the ensuing technologies of, CNS and AI, such as Robotics, Brain-Computer Interfacing, and Deep Brain Stimulation.
