BNCI Research in the ICT 7.2 cluster

T 012, 29/09/2010 (09:00-10:30)

Opportunities for collaborative work in brain/neuronal interface research will come under the microscope.

This session on BNCI research will have two elements. First, representatives from projects funded within Challenge 7.2 under the ICT Framework will summarise their projects' goals, accomplishments and remaining challenges. Second, there will be a discussion focusing not only on these discussions, but also on clustering issues now and in the future. Some common elements within the cluster have already been identified, providing an opportunity for useful discussion and collaboration. It is hoped that more opportunities for working together can be identified. This session complements the six exhibits at the ‘BNCI Village’ in the exhibit area, which will have demonstrations, flyers, videos and other supporting material.

Thank you for organizing this very interesting session, Softkinetic is looking forward to talk to the BNCI researchers about the integration of the brain/neuronal interfaces with ‘common’ interfaces. We hereby invite all BNCI researchers to experience our gesture recognition middleware for games at the Belgian pavilion booth B01.

Session and area of interest per our activities in the FP areas per development and application based on Neural Networks and Expert Systems, but in the particular case of Multi-parameter / Multi-dimensional Human Response Modelling (i.e., combination of subjective sensing state with and vs. objective psychological perceived state) and possibilities of integration with real-time portable or non-intrusive input interface and acquisition solutions.
