Abstract: A Brain‐Computer Interface (BCI) is a device that can enable users to interact with computers or machines using their thoughts. This technology can be used to restore lost function such as movement and speech or to treat people with neurological and psychological conditions. However, reports to date have had a limited clinical translation. This talk will focus on the concept of a BCI, outline some challenges in the present implementation, the work needed for the standardisation of BCI research and the progress made in overcoming these challenges.
