Free and open to the public.
Brain Computer Interfacing makes use of brain signals for the control of objects (e.g., wheel chairs), spelling, computer gaming, and other applications. This talk will provide a brief overview of current Brain Computer Interface technology. In particular, it will show the wealth, complexity and difficulties of the data available.
The talk will then report in more detail about the Berlin Brain Computer Interface that is based on Electroencephalography (EEG) signals, and take the audience all the way through the processing chain.
Finally, Brain Computer Interfacing application examples ranging from clinical studies where 'locked-in' patients achieve communication to non-clinical applications where, for instance, complex cognitive states while driving a car are analyzed, will be presented.
Klaus-Robert Müller is Professor of Computer Science at Technical University (TU) Berlin and Director of the Bernstein Focus on Neurotechnology Berlin. Since 2012, he also holds a Distinguished Professorship for Neurotechnology at Korea University, Seoul. He studied physics and obtained his PhD in Computer Science at TU Karlsruhe in 1992.
In 2012 he was elected to be a member of the German National Academy of Sciences - Leopoldina. His research interests are intelligent data analysis, machine learning, signal processing and Brain Computer Interfaces.
