    Event description

    Hands-on Brain-Computer Interface Workshop

    We are pleased to invite you to the hands-on workshop on Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), followed by an exciting BCI drone race competition. 

    This workshop aims to provide practical experience in designing and developing real-time Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) using electroencephalogram (EEG) technology. It also promotes using open-source tools and practices to enhance community collaboration and advance BCI development. The workshop will conclude with a competition to develop BCI-based controls for a drone race, offering exciting prizes for the winners.

    You will experience numerous Brain-Computer Interfaces example, coding sessions, model demonstrations and real-time hands-on activities with neurophysiological devices (wearable EEGs), followed by the first exciting drone race competition powered by BCI technology.

    Date: Monday 17 June 2024
    Time: 10:00am - 6:00pm
    Location: Building 11, Level 00, Room 100
