TALK: Dasher - Efficient Communication with Any Muscle,
Dasher is free software for information-efficient communication without a keyboard. The information-carrying capacity of a single spiking neuron is huge. If the times of spikes can be precisely controlled, many bits can be conveyed per spike. To illustrate this capacity, I will demonstrate a new version of Dasher, in which navigation is controlled by a single button.
David MacKay is a Professor in the Department of Physics at Cambridge University. He obtained his PhD in Computation and Neural Systems at the California Institute of Technology. His interests include machine learning, reliable computation with unreliable hardware, the design and decoding of error correcting codes, and the creation of information-efficient human-computer interfaces.
