1.-Christoph Guger welcomes participants from around the world to the 2024 BCI Spring School, a 13-hour daily educational event for 14 credits.

2.-Spring School features YouTube streaming, Discord channel for exchange, hackathon projects, and lectures covering BCI basics, components, signal processing and applications.

3.-G.Tec has offices worldwide and runs 15 research projects combining EEG, fNIRS for coma, MS rehab, and magnetic deep brain stimulation.

4.-Christoph summarizes G.Tec's 25 year history of BCI development from his PhD creating the first real-time BCI to current wireless systems.

5.-G.Tec achieved 100% BCI accuracy in 1999 using CSP algorithms, developed the first wireless EEG in 2007, and Microsoft Innovation Award in 2010.

6.-G.Tec technology was used in the Beowulf movie, high gamma mapping, neurorehabilitation gaming, fashion tech, and Art projects with mind-controlled robots.

7.-Clean EEG data is crucial for BCI experiments. A study showed G.Tec had the best EEG signal quality during 60 min tasks.

8.-The wireless Unicorn Hybrid Black uses hybrid gel/dry electrodes for easy application and 99% clean data even during backflips and situps.

9.-G.Tec combines EEG with NIRS for measuring blood oxygenation. The grids allow co-located sensors. Real-time visualization syncs with experiment events.

10.-G.Tec interfaces EEG with ChatGPT to interpret mental states and with DALL-E to generate artwork based on brain activity at Ars Electronica.

11.-New Unicorn EEG headband snaps onto VR headsets for instant EEG in VR/AR. Puzzle games and Fortnite interfaces were demoed.

12.-G.Tec's full software suite includes APIs, Simulink experimenting, Unity development, cognitive metrics, source localization, and heart arrhythmia prediction from ECG.

13.-ERD brain activity predicts left/right hand motor imagery. Neurorehabilitation by closing the loop with FES improves post-stroke hand function.

14.-1024-channel Geodesic sensor net maps separate EEG activity for each finger. Clinical 19-channel EEG is far lower resolution.

15.-ECoG patient had separate high gamma responses to tongue movement, auditory language, visual face/color processing, sensorimotor activity while solving Rubik's cube.

16.-ECoG and EEG source imaging guides tumor surgery, improving outcomes. Stereo EEG maps deep brain structures. Wearable dress reflects real-time concentration.

17.-At the end of Spring School, participants receive certificates of completion qualifying for university credits. Top 3 places are awarded in the Hackathon.

18.-A final exam offers an additional certificate for demonstrating learning. Keynote speakers also receive appreciation certificates for sharing their expertise.

19.-The program starts with Frankie Seal presenting on how to record clean EEG and choose appropriate hardware for different experiments and applications.
