Subject: New Student Org on Brain-Computer Interfaces and Neurotechnologies

Description:
NeuroTech@UMD is a new student organization focused on brain-computer
interfaces (BCIs).

BCIs are an exciting emerging technology that will allow us to control
computers and machines and communicate with each other just using our
thoughts! This technology is already being used in research to allow people
with lost limbs to control prosthetics via their brain's natural instructions
and to allow people with hand paralysis to enter words into a computer using
their thoughts. And companies like Facebook and Elon Musk's Neuralink are
actively working towards integrating this technology into future consumer
products.

Our club will focus primarily on non-invasive BCI, which uses a device like a
headset or hat to detect brainwaves on the surface of your head so that you
can make sense of it. Some projects that other NeuroTechX student clubs have
worked on in the past include brain-controlled drones, robots, and smart home
devices.

If you're interested in joining the club (and potentially even having a
leadership position), please email us at [log in to unmask]
