In this episode, we talk about an initiative from EPFL to allow those with spinal cord injuries to control robots for help with day-to-day tasks and MIT’s bug robots that are taking big strides for small scaled bio-robotics.

Podcast: Mind-Control and Bug-Like Robots

Two EPFL research groups teamed up to develop a machine-learning program that can be connected to a human brain and used to command a robot. The program adjusts the robot’s movements based on electrical signals from the brain.

Mind-controlled robots now one step closer

When they first met at the TUM Think.Make.Start young entrepreneurs program, Vladislav Samoilov and Philipp Zent quickly found common ground: they are both passionate gamers. And now they are also entrepreneurs. Their startup – called Brainsight – could revolutionize the world of playtesting.
