1st Iranian Brain Computer Interface Competition Was Held in NBML on 16th December 2017
1st Iranian Brain Computer Interface competition was held in NBML on 16th December 2017. 23 teams with a maximum of 5 members from all over Iran, competed in the first stage of this competition.
After reviewing the results were sent by participants, 6 groups were accepted to compete in the second stage. The second stage was held in NBML under the supervision of referees from different universities (Dr. Makkiabadi, Dr. Nasr Abadi, Dr. Mohammad Bagher Shamsollahi, Farhad Faraji). This competition was held with emphasis on recorded brain waves applications in rehabilitation of disabled people.
Today, attending in scientific, research and entrepreneurship programs at the national and international levels is a cause of the honor of science institutions, and gaining rank in the competitions of these fields and exhibitions is a proof of the influence and superiority of universities, and higher education .
By trusting in Allah, the Almighty, the All-wise, and by seeking His succor, with the independence of Mazandaran University of Science and Technology, and the establishment of units related to entrepreneurship and industry, various associations and groups, we are seeing the brightness of the students of this university and will go on .
So congratulations on conferring second place in the 1st national competition of Brain-computer Interface (BCI) by student group of computers (Mr. Saleh Mohammadian Jahanabad, Abolfazl Rudgarsefari and Mrs. Arzoo Kasselkeh) under the direction of Dr. Reza Javanmard to the Mazandaran Science and Technology family and Congratulations to the academic community and I wish success to all students and academic associations.
Brain–computer interface (BCI) systems are a fast-growing technology involving hardware and software communication systems that control external devices through brain activity. One of the important applications of BCI technology is to provide assistance to disabled people like paralytic patients. Brain–computer interfaces have great potential to allow patients with severe neurologic disabilities to return to interaction with society through communication devices, environmental controllers, and movement devices. Interest in this field has dramatically increased. At the end of the last century, there were but a handful of centers investigating BCI. There is considerable international interest in resolving communication and mobility deficits through BCI. Key biological problems as well as computer and engineering problems remain to be resolved.
