Picture of Yoshiyuki SankaiAbstract: Cybernics, a science and technology that fuses humans and AI robots/information systems, realised the wearable cyborg HAL driven by bioelectrical signals derived from the brain-nervous system, as one of representative cybernics systems.

Cybernics technologies can interconnect brain-nervous systems, physiological and body systems to robots and clouds/supercomputers, and would revolutionise medicine, health care, daily life, and labour for a wide variety of people including the patients and the disabled.

This lecture is hosted by Professor Hedvig Kjellström KTH. It is arranged by KTH, in cooperation with the Embassy of Japan to Sweden, IVA, Sweden-Japan Foundation, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Stockholm Office, and Digital Futures. The event will end with a 15 minute Q&A session.
