Abstract:
In this talk I'll give an overview of my recent work, focussing on the clinical aspects of machine learning applied to biosignals and robotics, especially as far as hand prosthetics is concerned. The grand plan is to radically improve an amputee's life by using non-invasive techniques to better control a suitable mechanical hand or a graphical representation of a hand, with the aim of restoring the patient's lost functions to the best possible extent.
