    Talk Title: Data-Driven Neuroengineering from Action to Cognition

    Abstract: Our work centres on non-invasive neuroengineering that combines cross-disciplinary machine learning and robotics approaches together with experimental methods in the field of neuroscience and experimental psychology. Our goal is to achieve a data-driven understanding of human behaviour to infer intentions and translate this into technology that helps people in health and disease. I will illustrate our research program by reviewing our research efforts in, building an Atlas of Behaviour using wearable sensors capturing the vast majority of human perceptual input and motor output in daily lives. The development of novel machine learning methods for the data- driven understanding of human behaviour to decode intention and control robotic interfaces for human augmentation, and clinical translation of our research in patients with neurodegenerative disorders.
