His brain-computer interface company BrainCo and new computer-controlled prosthesis company BrainRobotics have been selected by the United States as two of the world’s top ten brain-computer interface companies. He has veritably implemented the brain-computer interface technology to help ADHD and autism children get early interventions and restore social functions. In addition, he has developed the world’s first intelligent prosthesis for the disabled, allowing them to flexibly control each of the fingers.
Along with Tesla’s founder Elon Musk, he was named one of the five innovators in the field of brain-computer interface by the American media. In 2017, he was selected as one of China’s “Top 35 Scientists under 35” by MIT Technology Review, a century-old technology magazine.
How come a young girl with hand disability is able to play beautiful music on the piano? The answer lies in “brain-computer interface”. To put it simply, it is the interaction between human brain and machine.
Through the “brain-computer interface” technology, he makes prostheses for the disabled. They imagine that their arms were still there and give instructions from the brain to do an action. The signal will transmit to the arm muscles and the myoelectricity electrode will read the myoelectricity signal to make the prosthesis do the action, exerting conscious control.
It not only gives the disabled new hope of finding back the normal life, but also makes him a practitioner of applying technology in good causes.
