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.
