FAIR-SPACE sponsored the ‘From BCI to Human Robot Augmentation’ Hamlyn Symposium Workshop, held on 26th June 2019 at the Royal Geographical Society. The workshop was hosted by our academic partner; The Hamlyn Centre at Imperial College London.
The aim of the workshop was to provide a forum to bring together neuroscientists, engineers, and healthcare practitioners from a diverse range of disciplines to present the current state-of-the-art in Brain Computer Interface research for rehabilitation and mental state assessment in critical applications. It also explored some of the major technical challenges and unmet healthcare demands that can potentially reshape the future of rehabilitation robotics and wearable devices.
Attended by 40 delegates, the event included a presentation from Dr Fani Deligianni on her FAIR-SPACE research; primarily focused on an astronaut helmet and spacesuit using wearable technologies/AR. The workshop also included a keynote speech from Jose del R Millan of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and several presentations from other industry-leading experts.
