NeurotechGaming 2020 conference: Connecting your brain to video games”


What if you could connect your brain and body to a video game?

Keyboard, mouse, game pad – these are the control devices we’ve used for decades to play games. But as useful as they are, they still have many limitations. A video game doesn’t know if you are interested or bored with it, if you are learning or not, if we you are distracted or focused and you still need to remember complex key combinations.

To improve the gaming experience, companies shift their development towards Brain-Computer Interfaces. This technology allows to approach the next questions:

  • What if games could adapt its environment based on your thoughts and emotions?
  • What if you could communicate with your teammates using your brain and thoughts alone and act as one organism?
  • What if you could not only see and hear the gaming environment but also experience the tactile feelings like bullets shots or touching (think Ready Player One)
  • We all had experience with chat-bots that often feel very artificial. What if NPCs could understand how you feel and base their interactions on it, eventually becoming more real and human-like?
  • What if your enemies could learn from you and dynamically change their behavior to keep the gaming experience much more engaging?
  • And finally, what if you couldn’t tell the difference between a reality and a game?

2020 Workshop on Brain-Machine Interface Systems

2020 Workshop on Brain-Machine Interface Systems
The IEEE SMC 10th Workshop on Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) Systems will be held on October 11-14, 2020 in Toronto, Canada as part of SMC 2020, the flagship annual conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. The goal of the Workshop is to provide a forum for researchers to present research results, facilitate the interaction and intellectual exchange between researchers, developers and consumers of BMI technology. We invite contributions reporting the latest advances, innovations and applications in BMIs.
