Our factory's brain-computer interfaces detect neural signals through workers' skulls. Algorithmic analysis of these signals transforms cognitive activity into physical action.José Millán Chief Scientific Officer, Mental Work
and Defitech Foundation Chair in Brain-Machine Interface, EPFL
Mental Workers employ Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) to control machines using only their minds. These machines allow workers to tangibly engage with a future where pervasive BMI interaction with the physical environment becomes commonplace. Together with our employees and affiliates, we are dedicated to anticipating and planning for this upcoming Cognitive Revolution.

The swissnex San Francisco edition of Mental Work is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Bertarelli Foundation, which tackles some the biggest challenges in neuroscience and marine conservation. Based in Switzerland, it supports research at Harvard Medical School and Campus Biotech, a neuroscience center in Geneva established by the Bertarelli family, the Wyss Foundation, the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), and the University of Geneva. Part of the Swiss Touch campaign, Mental Work receives additional support from Wearable Sensing and the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
