Coinciding with Tesla founder Musk, brain-controlled robots will challenge world records during the World Robot Conference
The brain is sewed with a “sewing machine”, a chip is quickly implanted into the brain, and then the brain signals are directly read through the interface. This is the latest technology that Tesla founder Elon Musk recently released to make people “brain-opening”. Is this technology feasible? This new technology will be well explained at the World Robot Conference, which will be held from August 20th to 25th.
The World robot Conference was approved by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China and co-sponsored by the Beijing Municipal People’s Government, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the China Association for Science and Technology. The World Robot Expo and World Robot Competition will be held concurrently with the conference. The World Robot Conference has been successfully held for four sessions. It is the largest international conference in the field of robotics, with the highest specifications and the most abundant international elements. It has become an important platform for technology, industry, capital, and talent exchanges and cooperation.
It is understood that the Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Robotics Challenge will be held during the 2019 World Robot Conference. As an important part of this challenge, activities such as BCI brain-controlled robot challenge typing world record will be held in the competition.
According to Musk’s latest release, this new technology is achieved through a neurosurgical robot that uses laser skull puncture to implant 4-6 micron thick “wires” and custom chips into the human brain, which can be directly connected through USB- The C interface reads brain signals and can even be connected to the iPhone using the App.
The “wires” used in the system are less than one-tenth the thickness of a human hair, which not only causes less damage to the brain, but also transmits human brain signals that are read and amplified by the chip. But the technology has not been tested on humans. The technology is currently being tested in mice, with the first human tests planned to begin next year.
In order to obtain more experimental data of brain-controlled Robots and let the brain-computer interface better promote the development of BCI technology, the World Robot Competition held during this World Robot Conference takes the future brain-computer interface practical system as the background, from the perspective of practical application, On the basis of the ability of the contestants to control the BCI technical achievements, the competition items to examine the BCI technical algorithm ability of the scientific research team will be added, aiming to improve the brain-computer interface technology from the aspects of accuracy, efficiency, practicability, innovation, and technology. Technology and Industrial development in various fields such as disability assistance and rehabilitation meet people’s diverse livelihood needs such as medical care and elderly care. At the same time, in order to explore the practical application prospects of brain-computer interface technology and realize the leap-forward and integrated development of this field and various industries, this event also adds task challenges and innovative achievements Display.
The participants of this BCI Brain Control Robot Competition are the protagonists of the “high-precision” competition at the 2019 World Robotics Competition Finals to be held in Baoding, Hebei on July 26. The competition consists of four parts: technical competition, skill competition, challenge competition, and excellent achievement Display. The competition will compete in terms of practical application and technological research and development. In terms of practical application, the ability of contestants to control BCI technical achievements will be displayed and discussed. In terms of technology research and development, the ability of research teams in BCI technology research and development will be examined by comparing technical algorithms. Among them, the official game data obtained in the event will be recorded as an important research achievement in the field of brain-computer interface in my country at this stage.
This competition will focus on displaying a series of application cases of brain-computer interface technology in the field of medical rehabilitation, so that the combination of human brain and artificial intelligence will become a reality in competition.
Brain-controlled typing is a very important requirement for ALS patients to communicate in language. This project mainly tests the character input ability of the brain-computer interface system. Contestants mainly participate in the form of directional invitation and social registration. At the same time, disabled people are also encouraged to experience and participate in the competition. The disabled people participating in the competition are mainly invited by relevant medical rehabilitation organizations. .
The brain-computer interface system based on motor imagery can provide a way for disabled people with damaged central nervous system to communicate with the outside world, and it has great application value in the field of disability assistance and rehabilitation. This project mainly tests the comprehensive control ability of the brain-computer interface system based on motor imagery. The contestants mainly participate in the form of directional invitation and social registration. At the same time, the disabled are also encouraged to experience and participate in the competition. The participating disabled people are mainly organized by relevant medical rehabilitation organizations. Institutional recommendation invites composition.
Youth Brain-Computer Interface Project
Attention problems will accompany adolescents to cause certain negative effects during their growth, and brain-computer interface technology is also of great value in the training of improving concentration ability. This project mainly tests the comprehensive control ability of the brain-computer interface system based on the attention training of young people. The main body of the contestants is young people, and they mainly participate in the form of directional invitation and social registration.
In order to explore the application field of BCI technology and increase the display and visibility of the competition, the secretariat of the organizing committee of the conference, combined with the results of the first expert meeting, set up a skill competition challenge project at the 2019 World Robot Conference – Brain Control the drone. The brain-controlled drone players are composed of finalists of the skill competition. They compete by controlling the drones to complete the corresponding tasks.
It is understood that the World Robot Competition, as an event held concurrently with the World Robot Conference, has been held four times since 2015, attracting nearly 80,000 contestants from more than 20 countries around the world, and has been widely praised by major mainstream media as a robot The “Olympics” in the world is currently the most influential official event in the field of robotics at home and abroad.
The finals of the World Robot Competition will also hold the Inclusive Robot Competition, the Robot Industrial Design Competition and the Youth Robot Design Competition. During the competition, there will also be special activities such as the Robot Development Forum and the “Science and Technology Baoding” Enterprise Contact Meeting to provide everyone with more information. More opportunities to experience cutting-edge technology up close. Come and explore with us a Robotic journey full of sci-fi and futuristic!
