ARTLAB – EPFL / 26.10.17 – 11.02.18


Mental Work is Hiring


Our factory's brain-computer interfaces detect neural signals through workers' skulls. Algorithmic analysis of these signals transforms cognitive activity into physical action.

THE WORLD’S FIRST FACTORY OPERATED BY WORKERS’ BRAINWAVES

Nearly two-and-a-half centuries after James Watt launched the Industrial Revolution with the development of the steam engine, exponentially increasing the amount of power in human hands, Switzerland has developed a set of powerful machines controlled by operators' brains. Beginning on 26 October, EPFL ArtLab in Lausanne will put these machines to work in the first factory dedicated to the Cognitive Revolution.


In the Mental Work facility, workers employ Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) to control machines using only their minds. These machines are philosophical instruments that allow Mental Workers to tangibly engage with a future where pervasive BMI interaction with the physical environment is commonplace. Together with our employees, we are dedicated to anticipating and planning for this upcoming Cognitive Revolution.
