Menzies Health Institute Queensland Program Seminar Series
Healthcare Practice and Survivorship - Host Professor Wendy Moyle
Presenter: Dr Tomasz Rutkowski
Title: Reactive and Passive Multisensory Brain-computer Interfaces for Communication or Dementia Biomarkers Elucidation
The presentation will introduce contemporary brain-computer interface (BCI) techniques. Dr Rutkowski will explain auditory, visual, and tactile reactive BCI examples with applications for communication and passive solutions for cognitive-load/dementia biomarker elucidation. He will also discuss future research directions of the so-called neurotechnology applications for healthcare and especially cognitive monitoring solutions.
Tomasz Rutkowski received his M.Sc. in Electronics and Ph.D. in Telecommunications and Acoustics from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland, in 1994 and 2002, respectively. He received postdoctoral training at the Multimedia Laboratory, Kyoto University, and in 2005-2011 he worked as a research scientist at RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan. In 2011-2016 Tomasz served as an assistant professor at the University of Tsukuba, and as a visiting scientist at RIKEN Brain Science Institute. He used to serve as a visiting lecturer at The University of Tokyo, and he was also a member of AI startup in Tokyo. Currently, he is a research scientist at the RIKEN Center for AdvancedIntelligence Project (AIP) and a research fellow at The University of Tokyo. Tomasz' research interests include computational neuroscience, especially brain-computer interfacing (BCI), computational modelling of brain processes, AI applications dementia biomarkers elucidation. He received The BCI Annual Research Award 2014 for a project "Airborne Ultrasonic Tactile BCI," and his other project also received a nomination for the award in 2016.
