Top 3 Takeaways:

  • There is an opportunity to turn data generated by neuro medical devices into insights that are easy to digest
  • "free, the data, free the data! And I was thinking - to whom? And what are they going to do with it? It's like someone delivering boxes upon boxes of papers to your front door. And you're like I don't know what to do with it. Free the data is great, but to help me make sense of it is even greater."
  • "If you want to design for better usage and for better outcomes, you need to think psychology as well as technology"

6:15 "What's your kind of solution forward with this?"

9:30 "The trend of medical devices and neurotechnology generating more data to have to sift through, is that helping the problem or is that worsening the problem"

11:15 Is app and user experience design of these new devices going to be one of the most important factors?

13:45 "So what's the solution for this? Is it just hiring more designers and psychologists?"

20:30 "What point in the development cycle of a medical device or neuro technology, should people start thinking about this?"

22:45 Is this different if the technology is implantable?

25:15 "Is there anything that we didn't talk about that you wanted to mention?"
