Joel Eaton
Building creative systems for users with severe motor disabilities
 
This talk introduces research around applying brainwave control to musical systems.
In the world of accessible technologies, there are limited systems available for users with severe motor disabilities beyond communication tools.
Systems that measure brainwave responses to stimuli can provide a creative outlet through real-time control with little or no physical requirements and high levels of control accuracy.
This talk looks at on-going research into taking research out of the lab and into the world of special needs. How working directly with users can benefit technological design and improve their experiences towards diminishing the salience of physical disabilities.
Joel Eaton has a PhD in brain-computer music interfacing from Plymouth University and has been working with brainwaves and music for over 6 years. He currently works for ARM.
