Join us for an I Am A ... Ask Me Anything session on Reddit. 

Reddit started off as a social news website where users could submit links to share and discuss with each other. Over the past decade, it has grown at an incredible pace. One of the biggest subreddits on the site, with a growing community of more than 18 million
subscribers, is r/IAmA, which stands for I Am A…. Ask Me Anything. It is here that people from all walks of life can hold online interviews, in which they answer almost any question the community can throw at them. 

What: r/IAmA
Date: Jan. 23, 2019
Time: 3 p.m. ET
Reddit name: BattelleNeuroLife
Participants:

  • Ian Burkhart, In 2010, Ian broke his neck while diving into the ocean. Four years later, at The Ohio State University, he underwent an operation to implant a chip in his brain that detects part of the neural activity in his motor cortex. That activity is translated by algorithms in a computer system invented at Battelle. The “thoughts” are transferred from a computer to a special sleeve on Ian's arm that stimulates his muscles to respond to his brain's commands, moving his hand in a purposeful way.
  • Dr. Marcie Bockbrader, Assistant Profession & Residency Research Director, Residency Research Course Director, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center
  • David Friedenberg, Battelle Statistician and algorithm and data analysis lead for NeuroLife.
