The State of Innovation of Neural Interfaces: 2018 Edition

April 2, 2018 | State of the Market Report

Recent advances in the science and technology of neurology, vast performance improvements, and cost drops are now propelling neural interfaces – electronic devices that directly interact with the central and peripheral nervous systems – and are making these interfaces widely accessible. Modulating mental states like sleep and mood is among the earliest uses cases for neural interfaces, but these technologies are now serving new applications: from medical disease management to gaming, neuromarketing, and even facilitating new means of communication. In this report we highlight neural interface technologies, showcase developers and sources of innovation, and use the Lux Intelligence Engine platform to quantify the extent to which different neural interface technologies are being pursued by innovators and by the market more broadly.
