Digital Festival For Kids and Teens (Moscow, 4 December 2016)
- Written by Yury Nuzhdin
On 4th December 2016 I was invited as a speaker to Digital Festival For Kids and Teens. I decided to make a live demonstration of a Brain Computer Interface.
I used the motor imagery paradigm with the classifier that I made in collaboration with A.N. Vasilev. Our classifier was capable to determine imagery upper limb movements, and it required only 2.5 minutes of training.
A simple game was created for the demonstration: a car moved over two lanes while random obstacles occurred on a road. Player could choose a lane at any time to avoid an obstacle.
Random child volunteered in this online demonstration: we set up and calibrated the system and then the child could successfully play a car race game with our BCI. The whole demonstration took less than 45 minutes, although it was quite noisy in the room and a volunteer had no previous BCI experience.
