Speaker: Siamac Fazli
Title: Advances in Neurotechnology and Beyond
Date/Time: Monday, July 3 - 13:40-14:30
Place: FENS L063
Brain Computer Interfaces have witnessed a tremendous growth of scientific interest during the last years. However, some downfalls have prevented this exciting technology to produce mainstream applications for the general public. Among those are long setup time, illiteracy of some subjects as well as non-stationarities within recording sessions. During this talk we will review a number of hardware as well as software related neurotechnological developments, which address and alleviate some of these issues, thus making BCI a more compact, robust and ready-to-use technology. Furthermore, we will also investigate some recent BCI-related neurotechnological applications as well as some less closely-related topics.
Siamac Fazli received a B.Sc. degree in Physics from the University of Exeter in 2002, an M.Sc. degree in Medical Neurosciences from Humboldt University Berlin in 2004, and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Berlin Institute of Technology in 2011. From 2013 to 2016, he has worked as an Assistant Professor at Korea University and from 2016 he started a group for biomedical analysis at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin. His current research interests include neuroscience, machine learning, multi-modal neuroimaging, as well as brain-computer interfacing.
