BCI: Brain Computer Interface

I ran across Commercial brain computer systems are coming today (original article is here). This is a cool graphic:

BCI

I’ve talked previously about Human-Computer interface (HCI) work.

Invasive BCI technologies have incredible potential. In addition to the unique device-human interface challenges (primarily sensors), it will also require significant advancements in the basic understanding of the underlying electrophysiology (cortical and motor). As reported, EEG-based processing will continue to be a corner-stone for this work, just as it is for non-invasive systems.

This slide from the report (pp. 170) summarizes the uses and importance of this type of work:
