BCI & NEUROTECHNOLOGY IN MASSACHUSETTS AND RHODE ISLAND
The development of brain-computer interface technologies and connecting the brain to computers and robots via a non-muscular pathway has made a huge difference in various fields such as rehabilitation, robotics, or even art. Nowadays, BCI technology is getting noticed more and more by the international tech giants around the world, making them interested in dedicating their budgets and funding to develop this ever-growing technology. There are many labs around the world which are attempting to introduce new applications of BCI and make a difference in this field; and the BCI labs of Massachusetts and Rhode Island are leading in many aspects.
g.tec has invited some of the best BCI researchers of the states to present their exciting R&D achievements and introduce their latest BCI applications. Don’t miss this chance to get to learn new applications of brain-computer interfaces and gain insight into the nitty-gritty of the new techniques introduced by our speakers.
