World’s Pioneering Open-source Brain-on-chip Interface System Developed By Chinese Scientists

Chinese scientists have demonstrated the world’s first open-source brain-on-chip interface system in a remarkable leap forward that could redefine hybrid intelligence. MetaBOC, as it is known, was created by research teams from Tianjin University and Southern University of Science and Technology to bridge living systems with non-living systems that may transform areas including medical rehabilitation and brain-like computing.

Through stem cell technology, an artificial brain grown in vitro yields a “brain-like organ.” referred to as MetaBOC. This organ can interact with external information via encoding/decoding or stimulation-feedback mechanisms when connected to electrode chips. Brain-like computing would then be made possible by this innovative approach according to Tianjin University.

Ming Dong, Vice President of Tianjin University and Executive Director of Haihe Laboratory for Brain-Computer Interaction and Human-Machine Integration, stressed the power of brain-on-chip systems to change the world. “Brain-on-chip systems are an important emerging branch in the field of brain-computer interfaces and are expected to have a revolutionary impact on the development of cutting-edge science and technology fields such as hybrid intelligence and brain-like computing,” he said.

Dealing with mind control tasks for instance path avoidance, object tracking, and grasping items through “mind control.” This application may help in treating neurodevelopmental diseases through the pioneering use of brain-on-chip technology in medical rehabilitation. Low-intensity focused ultrasound techniques can promote integration interaction between host brains with their corresponding artificial brains which can lead to regeneration as well repair of neurodevelopmental deformities found out after study.

This new technology has exciting potential but still faces several challenges. As indicated by Li Xiaohong, Professor at Tianjin University Hailing Lab, and head of the brain-computer interface research team, these brain-like organs have low developmental maturity and lack of nutrient supply. The group is researching ways such as using low-intensity ultrasound to improve the generation of organoid cells into neurons, and further integrate them into host brains.

Invention patents for 15 national items in the field of brain-on-chip interfaces have been filed by these researchers, with two patents at different stages of review in the United States and the United Kingdom. These researchers aim to explore deeper scientific issues such as intelligent communication, migration, and integration so that this innovative technology may be applied early enough.
