Presentation title: Development and challenge for non-invasive BCIs
Brain computer interaction is the highest form for human machine interaction, which is the only way of fusing the biology intelligence and artificial intelligence. As one of the important methods for brain computer interaction, brain computer interface (BCI) technology has become a hot topic in the field of brain science, which is of great significance to the development of modern medicine. In this presentation, we start with some basic overview on BCI and summarize the common trend for invasive and non-invasive BCIs. Then, research progress of our research team, Neural Engineering Research Group at Tianjin University, is presented, including fundamental mechanism of neuroscience, methods of brain activity sensing, software /hardware systems, key technology in encoding/decoding and some typical applications, which covered the whole technology chain of the BCI technology. In the last section, the development trend and future of BCI is summarized.
