Nataliya Kosmyna, expert in the field of Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI), Human Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence, vividly explains how one can control objects solely by using the power of thought. See her TEDx talk of the TEDx FHKufstein event in order to be amazed by how she is able to pilot the BB-8 droid from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and understand how the hard- and software is working together to make this possible. Furthermore, Nataliya will describe how people who suffer from disabilities could possibly benefit from the innovation and what our most powerful device, our brain, is capable of – “It is working 24/7.”

Nataliya Kosmyna, a post-doc fellow who obtained her Ph.D degree in Computer Science from Grenoble Alpes University, is an expert in the field of Brain Computer Interfaces and Artificial Intelligence.
