Neurocareers: Doing The Impossible!

May 1, 2023

Have you ever wondered how researchers make it easier for our brains to communicate with machines? Join us in the latest episode of the BCI Award Neurocareers podcast series as we explore Dr. Victoria Peterson's groundbreaking approach to transfer learning with BCIs. Discover how her team's approach is revolutionizing the way we decode signals from the brain to control devices, paving the way for new possibilities in neurotechnologies.

Follow along with Dr. Peterson's successful project submission, "Improving cross-session BCI decoding via a retraining-free optimal transport transfer learning approach," which was nominated for the prestigious international BCI Award in 2021. Victoria's team has developed a groundbreaking approach to transfer learning that promises to improve cross-session BCI decoding without requiring extensive retraining between sessions. This has the potential to revolutionize the way we approach BCIs and could significantly impact the future of this field.

In this episode, you'll also gain invaluable insights into the BCI Award submission process and career tips!

Are you ready to dive into this exciting episode of the Neurocareers podcast, brought to you in partnership with Dr. Christoph Guger at g.tec medical engineering GmbH and Milena Korostenskaja, PhD at The Institute of Neuroapproaches? Then sit back, relax, and get ready to learn from one of the brightest minds in the field!

About the Podcast Guest

Victoria Peterson is a trailblazer in the field of neuroengineering and brain-computer interfaces. As the Applied Computational Neuroengineering Lab (NiCALab) leader at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in Santa Fe, Argentina, she has over a decade of experience providing machine learning solutions for brain signal decoding.

With a background in bioengineering and a Ph.D. in engineering, signals, systems, and computational intelligence, Victoria's groundbreaking research focuses on using optimal transport for improving across-session BCIs. Her work has earned her a nomination for the BCI Award 2021.

Victoria firmly believes that BCI research should be accessible to and benefit everyone.
