The purpose and goals of the NeuroAbilities program is to improve the knowledge of the nascent field of Brain to Computer Interfaces (BCI) enabled by microchips, wearable devices and AI for assistive technologies and create a new sustainable community of involved stakeholders facilitated by G3ict with the intent to promote innovation and solutions while exploring user’s perspectives as well as security, societal and ethical issues. ​

Purpose and Goals Program Submitted to McGovern Foundation​

  • ​Identify research and development organizations most advanced in designing assistive Brain to Computer Interfaces (BCIs) solutions. ​
  • Organize a seminar or conference track to showcase leading solutions and facilitate further dialogue, innovation and initiatives as well as an exploration of the privacy, security and ethical issues surrounding the emergence of those new technologies and their applications.
  • Produce a report documenting the results of the program. ​
  • Launch a dedicated web site serving as a knowledge portal for BCIs applied to assistive solutions for persons with disabilities.

The above steps will aim to crystallize and foster the development of an “Assistive BCI Ecosystem” including scientists from academia and the private sector, leading IT corporations involved in BCIs, assistive technology users, advocates representing different organizations of persons with disabilities, professional care givers, application developers and government agencies involved in disability related policies and programs. ​
