Research on brain-computer interface will be presented at the International Human-Centered Robotics Symposium, and UC's work to pioneer a human-centered robotics curriculum will be discussed. If you think with the release of every new i-device the world is getting closer to thought-controlled smart tech and robotic personal assistants, you might be right. And thanks in part to work led by the University of Cincinnati's Anca Ralescu, we may be even closer than you realize. Professor...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As a needle sweeps across the grooves of a worn vinyl record, it carries the distinct sounds of hisses, scratches and even the echo of skips. For many years, however, if someone yearned to hear Frank Sinatra sing "Fly Me to the Moon," they were able to listen to his crooning baritone with technical clarity, courtesy of the increased signal-to-noise ratio of digital re-masterings. Recent advances in neurofeedback techniques have made...
