China’s Tianjin University’s ‘Brain Talker’ makes “Mind Reading” Possible

Brain-Computer Codec Chip (BC3) – Brain Talker.

This BC3 chip was specially designed to improve the Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology, which aims at decoding a user’s mental intent solely through neural electrical signals, without the use of the human body’s natural neuromuscular pathways.

“The signals transmitted and processed by the brain are submerged in the background noise. This BC3 chip has the ability to discriminate minor neural electrical signals and decode their information efficiently, which can greatly enhance the speed and accuracy of brain-computer interfaces.

Today, with advanced technologies in integrated circuits and computational neuroscience, BC3 was developed with a portable size, more precision in decoding,  higher efficiency in computing and faster communication ability, compared to the traditional decoding devices.

BCI is a system allowing a person to control a computer or other electronic device using his or her brainwaves, without requiring any movement or verbal instruction.

Brain Talker, specially designed for decoding brainwave information, may replace traditional computer devices used in BCI due to its more portable size, precision in decoding, high efficiency in computing and faster communication ability.

Brain Talker was co-developed by Tianjin University and China Electronics Corporation.
