Weekend Ed. Quote ~ October 3

“Through engagement, but also imagination and alignment, our identities come to reflect the landscape in which we live and our experience of it. Identity becomes a system, as it were.” (Wenger, 2010: 185)

Brian-Computer Interface Videos

My Learning Partner gave an excellent presentation on the Brian-Computer Interface (BCI). The central element in each BCI is a translation algorithm that converts electrophysiological input from the user into output that controls external devices.

—BCI operation depends on effective interaction between two adaptive controllers, the user who encodes his or her commands in the electrophysiological input provided to the BCI, and the BCI which recognizes the commands contained in the input and expresses them in device control.

Here are a few of the videos she highlighted.
