About the PostDoc-project
This postdoc is based within the project Using mentalism magic to explore the future consequences of brain imaging technology. Recent advances in brain imaging and AI have made it possible to decode and predict various aspects of human mental processes directly from brain activity. This poses very difficult questions about the nature of human agency and selfhood, and raises ethical concerns about future developments of this technology.
    The strategic ambition of the postdoctoral project is to use insights from the field of mentalism performance magic to simulate the psychological experiences of such near future brain reading technology, thereby gaining a unique window into how we might react, cope and adapt to new realities of the mind.
