Brain computer interface
Project Mentor: Dr Sam John
Project Leads: Po Liu and Carl Xing
We look to decode neural information by using machine learning algorithms to extract EEG neurosignal features to control external electronics with the aim of building a hands-free system to hypothetically allow disabled people to acquire some independence.
Western health colorectal surgery app
Project Mentor: A/Prof Justin Yeung, Prof Paul Baird, Ms Janan Arslan, Dr Reuben Schmidt
Project Leads: Edmond Lu
We aim to build an app that provides clinician UI and patient UI to communicate management plans and other educational / therapeutic content to enhance care for patients undergoing colorectal surgery at Western Health with emphasis on its culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) demographic.
