The CATCH Network learns about machine learning in the control of prosthetic hands and Patient and Public Involvement.
We were delighted to be joined by not one, not two, but three exciting speakers at the June 2016 CATCH Networking Lunch.
The sixth event, held in the ICOSS Conference Room this week, saw Dr Kianoush Nazarpour, Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering at Newcastle University, take us through the case pro and against advanced machine learning in control of prosthetic hands. A captivated audience asked many questions of Dr Nazarpour and a lively discussion about the limitations of the current models followed his presentation.
CATCH’s very own Dr Rebecca Palmer and Madeleine Harrison then enlightened the group in the differences between being a participant or advisor in Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) with a fun interactive slot.
More than 20 academics, researchers and professional services staff networked and enjoyed learning about the latest developments within CATCH.
The next CATCH Networking Lunch will be held on Wednesday 20th July from 12.15 - 14.00 in the Alfred Denny Building Conference Room.
