#043 Brain Computer Interfaces — Prof Karl Friston Big Picture Medicine

    • Medicine

Professor Karl Friston is the most frequently cited neuroscientist in the world. Some of his most fascinating ideas centre around brain imaging, and of course, his infamous free energy principle — a grand unifying principle for cognitive science and biology.

Professor Friston is incredibly insightful and patient with my questions — which at times feel like a 5 year old playing with a grand chess master. We speak about consciousness, brain computer interfaces as well as Professor Friston’s story and advice for young academics. I try to deconstruct some of what his enabled him to put forward so many novel, impactful ideas.

I hope you enjoy.

I recommend listening to Lex Fridman’s interview of Professor Friston. Lex asks much more intelligent questions: https://lexfridman.com/karl-friston/

Secondly there’s a wonderful Wired article written by Shaun Raviv which you won’t be able to put down: https://www.wired.com/story/karl-friston-free-energy-principle-artificial-intelligence/
