Trend: Growing investment behind non-invasive, AI-based brain-computer interfaces


Neu­rotech­nol­o­gy Start­up Next­Mind Secures $4.6 Mil­lion (press release):

Next­Mind, a fast-grow­ing neu­rotech­nol­o­gy start­up devel­op­ing a ground­break­ing, non­in­va­sive, AI-based brain-com­put­er inter­face geared to the mass mar­ket, announced today it has raised $4.6 mil­lion in fund­ing to bring its direct brain com­mand solu­tion to tech­nol­o­gy inte­gra­tors and game devel­op­ers in 2019 … Next­Mind is devel­op­ing a dis­crete non­in­va­sive brain-sens­ing device for the mass mar­ket that will allow users to play games and con­trol elec­tron­ic and mobile devices, includ­ing vir­tu­al and aug­ment­ed real­i­ty head­sets, in real time using just their thoughts. Next­Mind com­bines new brain-sens­ing tech­nol­o­gy with inno­v­a­tive machine-learn­ing algo­rithms to trans­late brain waves into direct dig­i­tal com­mands, mak­ing it eas­i­er for end users to nav­i­gate the com­put­er sys­tems they’re using. Uti­liz­ing its brain-sens­ing tech­nol­o­gy, Next­Mind ana­lyzes neur­al sig­nals from the brain and trans­lates them into dig­i­tal com­mands or feed­back instan­ta­neous­ly on a wire­less dig­i­tal interface.”
