Privacidad y consentimiento en dispositivos neurotecnológicos: un estudio crítico desde la idea de biocapitalización
This article analyzes the ethical implications of privacy and data consent related to artificial intelligence technologies in the field of health and wellness. Specifically, "brain computer interfaces" (BCI) will be considered. BCI, or non-invasive neurotechnological devices, analyze and detect in real time brain activity related to an action, which purpose aims to measure, stimulate or even rehabilitate cognitive performance. The ethical perspective of BCI regulatory policies is relevant because it allows us to examine how these neurotechnological devices take advantage of a lax legal status, infringing on the user's capacity for self-determination, transforming the very idea of privacy and intimacy, and threatening the idea of freedom. To address such complexities and issues, this proposal develops a conceptual framework defined primarly by Byung-Chul Han's ideas of psychopolitics and Nikolas Rose's biocapitalization.
