Background Brainwave controlled technology uses a brain-computer control interface (BCI) to translate brain waves into commands that allowing users to control an external device by solely their thoughts. The technology allows the brain of patient to communicate with the electrical wheelchair, as well as allows the user to control what happens on computer screen with a headset.

Professor TONG is an expert in the field of BCI and biomedical engineering. Over the years, he has made great strides in developing a wide range of rehabilitation devices with the use of the above-mentioned technology. His innovative work on rehabilitation robot system “Hand of Hope” was the first Hong Kong invention to have received the grand prize in the 40 year history of the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva (2012), making Hong Kong internationally visible in this emerging area in healthcare technology. He was therefore awarded the Ten Outstanding Young Persons in 2013. 
Objective(s) 1) Sharing on the latest development and application of Brainwave-controlled technology; and
2) Sharing on the experience of leading secondary school students to conduct STEM activities related to Brainwave-controlled technology so as to develop their potential in STEM related areas. Demonstration session will be included in the seminar.
