RSVPs for natChat Fa21 are now open!
A FREE virtual chat session hosted by NeurAlbertaTech. We invite guest speakers to talk about important topics in neuroscience, tech, and the neurotech industry. At this event you will have the chance to win some exclusive NAT swag and more importantly, you will have the chance to build your network and expand your professional reach.
We will start with a quick introduction to the NPO, NeurAlbertaTech, with a recap of projects we have supported since our founding in February of 2019.
Then we will dive deep into the specifics of one of our current projects, "Koalacademy" (submission to the Russian Neurotech Cup 2021), and how we are scientifically validating a Brain Computer Interface-accelerated language learning platform through traditional academic research avenues at the University of Alberta.
When: Friday October 21st, 2021, 16:00-16:30 MT
NeurAlbertaTech Neurotechnologies Ltd. will continue to handle all of the day-to-day operations, events, communications, and special project teams. Student chapters at the UofA and UofC will handle special project teams and social events. If you are a student at the UofA or UofC, please join our NAT Student Chapters for additional opportunities to get involved! More information coming soon.
What is NeurAlbertaTech?
We are Alberta's premier neurotechnology innovator network, we specifically aim to promote development and education in the space of brain-computer interfaces. The purpose of our group is to build a worldwide community that facilitates neurotechnological innovations through initiating and supporting crosss-faculty, cross-instituional collaborations, through fostering skills through workshops and mentorship, and through hosting several competent teams to compete in international neurotechnology competitions!
A drone controlled entirely by your brain waves! Not only is this an incredibly fun project, but this is also a potentially incredibly powerful creation. In reality, over the past few months, we have built a general purpose BCI controller that can be connected to whatever we want! We chose to connect it to a drone to show it's power in an entertaining way, though, this can be connected to anything from games to wheelchairs to rudamentary speech tools to allow for a new method of control that enables people to meaningfully interact with the world, regardless of motor ability.
