Advances in brain-computer and brain-device interfaces are happening plus breakthroughs in AI, natural speech generation, wireless body area networks and machine learning…

How can you and your team make a difference?

The winning team will deliver a ‘new to the world’ innovation or notable advance in neurotechnology or AI-enabled bionics designed to treat brain or nervous disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and/or restore a human function. We are interested in:

  • Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) or brain-device interfaces, AI-enabled implanted devices or wearables that enable communication (interaction between thought, message formulation, speech and/or other communication);
  • BCI, deep brain stimulation, AI-enabled devices and wearables that contribute to improved treatments and functionality for people living with emotional or nervous disorders, epilepsy, disabilities caused by stroke or spinal cord injury, chronic peripheral neuropathies and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, MND, cerebral palsy);
  • BCI, AI-enabled software and allied devices and wearables that restore or replace the functionality of human organs, senses and limbs;
  • Allied technologies, health services or program innovations that heighten consumer adaption to neurobionics treatments, BCI and AI-enabled devices.
