I study emerging brain interface technologies and implantable neuroelectronics. I believe in the neuroelectronic chips — in the future, they will be able to read and understand human thoughts and can communicate with the nervous system. In this talk, I will first present a novel PNS neural chip and an AI algorithm, a mind-reading technology invented in my lab representing a recent breakthrough in brain-machine interfaces and neural electronics. I will share demos and patient interviews to explain how our research could change their life. I will then discuss the challenges, recent innovations, and the next-step plan towards engineering a new hand for amputees. Finally, I will present our ongoing works and discuss future directions for innovating the next generation of neural modulation technologies and their upcoming human clinical applications in a broader context.
