Forschen an einer neuen Schnittstelle zum Gehirn: Das Berliner Brain-Computer Interface
The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface (BBCI) uses machine learning approaches to extract user-specific patterns from high-dimensional EEG-features optimized for revealing the user's mental state. Classical BCI applications are brain-actuated tools for paralyzed patients such as prostheses or mental text entry. In these applications, the BBCI uses natural motor skills of the users and specifically tailored pattern recognition algorithms for detecting the user's intentions. Beyond rehabilitation, there is a wide range of novel applications in which BCI technology is used to monitor other mental states, even covert ones.
