20 years ago, Brain-Computer Interfaces could only move computer cursors. Today, machine learning is one component of BCI’s that will be used in many different fields of neuroscience, such as motor rehabilitation of stroke patients, assessment and communication of coma patients, control of devices for disabled people, cognitive training or neuromarketing.
The BR41N.IO Brain-Computer Interface Designers Hackathon has been created to show these current and future developments and unlimited possibilities of Brain-Computer Interfaces in creative or scientific fields. Furthermore, BR41N.IO aims to help understanding how artificial intelligence, life science, art and technology become a unity to evolve innovative and exceptional BCI headpieces.
The BR41N.IO Hackathon brings together engineers, programmers, physicians, designers, artists or fashionistas, to collaborate intensively as an interdisciplinary team. They program or build their own fully functional EEG-based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) to control a drone, a Sphero or e-puck robot or an orthosis. The participation only requires basic knowledge in Brain-Computer Interfaces, machine learning, programming or designing.
