Harrison Canning is a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology in the School of Individualized Studies, Founder of The BCI Guys & Neurotechnology Exploration Team. He makes videos on his Youtube channel The BCI Guys and has designed his own degree centered around brain-computer interface technology (BA in Neurotechnology).

The BCI Guys is a media company dedicated to removing the barrier to entry and increasing interest in the field of neurotechnology. It produces engaging, sensational, digestible, and informative content via YouTube, podcasts, and blog posts. Its aim is to lead the conversation around neurotechnology through a science-based approach and conveying what is possible, while also conveying the tremendous potential of brain-computer interface and neuromodulation technologies.
