The 1st UK-China HCI and Digital Health Forum has been successfully closed 48 days before. We are still receiving some inquiries about the next plan, the presentation and even the photos. This is why we set up the gallery for all potential inquiries and interests.
It might be bit of late to express our gratitude to all speakers, audience, volunteers, contributors and event partners now. However, we are highly likely to have a second chance to say in 2017. A potential forum is under planning at the moment. HCI will still be the theme. We are going to think about more broad applied areas and more business opportunities this time.
All documents, which are PDF files, are categorised into three themes: technologies, marketing and business cases. Especially, the business cases show an extremely booming EEG products market in China. It is very interesting the main force in this business is based in the city of Hangzhou, the hosting city for G20 2017 and the HQ of Alibaba.

specialising in healthcare in China, Asia and other emerging markets, who has led assignments for many of the world’s most successful healthcare and technology companies.
Dr Biao Zeng (Founder of iTalkTone Lab, Bournemouth University)
Title: Demands of Digital Healthcare in China: Why China is NOT an Aged People Friendly Place?
Zeng is extremely interested in applying psychology into a variety of social behaviour changes, e.g. polling, voting, rumour in cyberspace, and violence in hospitals.
A stylish wearable EEG glasses, which was invented with the support of iTalkTone Lab, has inspired the warmth and passion in Hangzhou on 23rd December. An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a recording of brain activity and can be used to help diagnose and monitor a number of conditions affecting the brain.
Hangzhou, where Alibaba Group‘s headquarter is located, is the hottest hub for Chinese startups and “Internet Plus” business. Jack Ma, the grassroots billionaire and founder of Alibaba, has electrified Chinese youth with his global success and radicalised Hangzhou, a homeland of traditional Chinese aesthetics, into a commercial battlefield full of venture capital and entrepreneur spirit.
Dr Zeng’s EEG glasses project can be one case. Leading a group of app developers, EEG experimenters and hardware engineers, Dr Zeng delivered the wearable EEG product to his sponsor, a local hi-tech company on the day before Christmas Eve. This roadshow took place in the Dream Village, which is a business incubation park in the west of Hangzhou.
Over 50 guests and audiences packed into a startup cafe located in the village. During the presentation, Dr Zeng initially ran an experiment to explain how brainwave or EEG was working. The experiment also showed his glasses was capable to detect, record and analyse EEG signal. Two functions of the EEG glasses were demonstrated later. Firstly, using this glasses, one user was able to answer a list of two-choice questions without any spoken word. Secondly, the other user could take photo by driving the camera with his brainwave signal.
The roadshow received huge welcome from local investors, business companies, media and public. Thanks to Zhejiang University, a strong R&D incentive university, Zhejiang has taken the leader’s position in China’s BCI industry. Therefore it has great potential to develop such product in Zhejiang. For the forthcoming plan, Dr Zeng said he would identify real demand in healthcare market and help the investors to improve the demo before mass production.
On 27th November, a product demo, which was proposed by our lab, was introduced to the audience on a workshop in our Lansdowne campus, Bournemouth University. This workshop was led by Prof Hongnian Yu from Computing Science. This workshop was run for a proposed Digital Healthcare Institute which was stirred by a group of researchers, doctors and business people from Bournemouth University, local hospitals and industry. The iTalkTone Lab was involved in this proposal with great passion.
The product demo (see that the researcher is wearing), temporally named EEG glasses, was designed for the people who suffered from communication difficulty, especially acquired aphasia and locked-in syndrome patients, for example, Dr Stephen Hawking. This wearable equipment enables these people to use brainwave to make some basic communication with external world. Dr Zeng has been leading his team to work with support of a hi-tech company in China for over one year. He expected to make a roadshow this December in China.
