In The Lab This Week: Your NEURALLY ENGAGED Self

Think you know your city inside out? Call into the Lab this week and meet the team at Insight, Centre for Data Analysis at DCU. With their guidance you will take part in real research and an experiment to sort and tag images of Dublin City using your thoughts. The experience will involve novel human-computer interaction applications or BCI’s for short (Brain-computer Interfaces). The result: See what your brain waves have to say about Dublin and how they rank compared to the rest of the city dwellers!

Insight Centre for Data Analysis at DCU do high impact research in data analytics that has significantly impacted on industry and society by enabling better decision making. With the emergence of neurotechnology in day-to-day life they hope to fundamentally change how we interact with information, each other and ourselves.

Visitors to LIFELOGGING can pop into the Lab any time to meet a lifelogger who'll be doing research and workshops that you can get hands-on with and delve into the world of data. Every week will see a different lifelogger take over, so be sure to drop in regularly!

The guys at Insight will also be doing a scheduled demo in the lab giving you a run down on neurotechnology and a sneak peek into what the future may hold. Click here to find out more.
