Brain-Machine Interface Systems

BMI-SMCS

 

Our Goal

Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) are about transforming thought into action, or, conversely, sensation into perception. One example of this paradigm contends that a user can perceive sensory information and enact voluntary motor actions through a direct interface between the brain and a prosthetic device in virtually the same way that we see, hear, walk, or grab an object with our own natural limbs.

The primary objective of the BMI Systems Technical Committee is to bring together specialists from the different areas that will be required as part of any real-world BMI system: systems neuroscience, system integration, sensors, integrated circuits, machine learning, control, robotics, biology, clinical studies, neurologists, system engineers, cybernetic experts, human-machine professionals, and other computer scientists and engineers working in this interdisciplinary environment. The goal of the TC is to provide a basis for the exchange of information and resources among these diverse communities, to enable interactions between groups from these fields and to bring a systems perspective to the field of BMI.
