Faster Mine Detection through Computer Vision + Brain Computer Interface

Source: Phys.org

Computer scientists at the University of California, San Diego, have combined sophisticated computer vision algorithms and a brain-computer interface to find mines in sonar images of the ocean floor. The study shows that the new method speeds detection up considerably, when compared to existing methods—mainly visual inspection by a mine detection expert.

Virtual Arms controlled by Brain Power

For scientists building devices that would allow the paralyzed to interact with their environment (as well as those wishing to understand the workings of the brain), it’s important to understand that using two virtual arms is a more complex proposition than using each arm separately and multiplying by two. But with a little help and a lot of technology, a new study shows, even a monkey can be taught to do it.

Intelligent Neuroprostheses can now mimic natural Motor Control

Source: Sciencedaily.com via the Cognitive Neuroscience Society

Neuroscientists are taking inspiration from natural motor control to design new prosthetic devices that can better replace limb function. In new work, researchers have tested a range of brain-controlled devices — from wheelchairs to robots to advanced limbs — that work with their users to intelligently perform tasks.
