BCI Workshop – From Basics to Applications
Saturday, October 29, 2022
1:00 – 3:00 pm

The workshop will offer a hands-on experience, lead by Dr. José del R. Millán, followed by a panel discussion of experts in the field. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with EEG-based BCI experts in setting up hardware infrastructure, practice themselves, witness live BCI demos, and even be experimental subjects. Demos will consist of a brain-actuated FES: the BCI controls delivery of functional electrical stimulation over hand muscles, thus directly translating subject’s motor intent. The BCI will rely on novel EEG technology and advanced software that minimizes subject training. This hands-on portion of the workshop will be followed by a round table discussion by experts in different aspects and approaches of the multidisciplinary BCI field with opportunity for audience engagement.
