Controlling Computers with Our Minds
Can we really control computers with our brain? Find out why the answer is most definitely yes with Masousos Klados, of CITY College, University of York Europe Campus.

Thursday 17 June 2021
15:30-16:30 GMT

Speaker:
Dr Manousos Klados
Associate Professor, Psychology Department
CITY College, University of York Europe Campus

 

Overview
Can we control computers with our brain? Yes!

Find out how this is made possible using a brain–computer interface (BCI) - a direct communication pathway between the brain and the computer. BCIs are often directed at researching, mapping, assisting, augmenting, or repairing human cognitive or sensory-motor functions.

Masousos Klados, of CITY College, University of York Europe Campus, discusses how brain-computer interface became a reality, by looking more closely at the technological advancements in available devices such as predictive models.

He will also look at the main brain–computer interface categories and how they are currently used, showing recorded examples. Be sure not to miss the end of Masousos’s talk when he will link his brain with his computer online to control a media player.

This event is hosted live on Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before the event takes place and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
