Colorado and the Rockies

Productive work trip with Intel in Longmont, Colorado. Learning about product direction and priority management. Meeting the members of the team from the states was fun and particularly useful given the majority of team members work remotely.

We had a treat yesterday going up into the Rockies at El Dorado Canyon State Park with breathtaking views and surprisingly good #accessibility. Some of the rocks are dated at 1.7 billion years old!

Cybathlon recording sessions @ImperialCollegeLondon

A couple of weeks ago I ventured up to Imperial College in London to attend some recording sessions for brain signals in preparation of #TeamImperial competing in the 2016 “Cyber Olympics”. More info here:

This session was prepared for by wearing a cap and having a large number of electrodes attached to it, Pablo and Cedric had to make sure each of the electrodes had a good connection with the skin (measuring the impedance) by painstakingly injecting and distributing conductive gel between the electrodes and my head. This took some patience on all our parts but was well worth it in the end.

The aim of the session was to identify signals that could be differentiated reliably from one another, we tested various “imageries” which basically translates as “imagining something” for exam
