3 thoughts on “About”

  1. How do we interface recognition systems using neurocybernetics for the study of neurodynamic activity?The use of radiation to connect to the biological neural network is based on cybernetic principles but the process is not explained properly in books and journals.It is possible today to neural code speech,image and acoustics to the brain using radiation.This establishes a two way signal one being the transmission and the other neurofeedback.This has already been used by the defence forces in certain countries.To have an integration of neurovision/computer vision,Spatial Mental Imagery and neurolinguistics we can process neural signals by feature extraction using a brain control interface.Your research work is truly remarkable and hence I thought your insights into the application development would be extremely helpful.Computational neurodynamics and cognitive informatics are closely related in processing neural information.Computational physics is also used to process neural information.


    1. Dear Yogesh

      First of all thank you for asking. There are not one easy or direct answers to this question however, multiple possibilities exist depending what is that machine is trying to recognize. For example if it is a digit recognition task then it is not extremely difficult to assume that as one can train Convolutional Neural Networks and use standard classification techniques to label data and subsequently apply training method to see whether recognition reaches sufficient accuracy with the testing data. This can even be done with Spiking Neural Nets. Valence or Emotion classification on the other hand is a hard problem and neuroimaging results are not robust yet. Hence, better success has so far been achieved while dealing with simple input-output relationship for example left-right cursor movement control, finger tapping etc, Lifting an object up-and-down. These visuo-motor tasks are extremely pragmatic and important for developing interface for BCI applications. Neurofeedback also had relatively limited success in terms of controlling thoughts, actions. This is understandable as we are only scratching the tip of the iceberg and the iceberg very deep. Hence, without understanding Brain you will have very little success in decoding how does it solve simple or complex problem categories. You will have even lesser success in controlling those salient signals. Current trend shows that is where the field is going that is the understanding of complex processing in the Brain and trying to relate that to meaningful behaviour.
      I sincerely hope this gives you some additional insights.


  2. Since I can’t upload pdf files I will paste so that you can see where the development level has already reached.

    When you read this you will see how defence applications are already connected to recognition systems using multi-disciplinary sciences.These recognition systems are neurovision,spatial mental imagery,BCI,etc but the network is using the above mentioned process which has already been patented.
