- 3rd Place Winner of the BCI Award 2018: Brain-To-Speech
3rd Place Winner of the BCI Award 2018: Brain-To-Speech
To investigate and decode articulatory speech production, Christian Herff and his team used Electrocorticography (ECoG) and presented the first direct synthesis of comprehensible acoustics only from areas involved in speech production. This is especially important as these areas are likely to display similar activity patterns during attempted speech production, as would occur for locked-in patients. In summary, Brain-To-Speech could provide a voice and a natural means of conversation for paralyzed patients. We had the chance to talk with Christian about his BCI Award 2018 submission at the BCI Meeting 2018 in Asilomar.
