Abstract

A brain computer interfaces (BCI) is a communication system that translates brain activity into commands for a computer or other devices. Brain computer interfaces (BCI) technology is a powerful communication tool between users and systems. It does not require any external devices or muscle intervention to issue commands and complete the interaction. In other words, a BCI allows users to act on their environment by using only brain activity, without using peripheral nerves and muscles. The major goal of BCI research is to develop systems that allow disable users to communicate with other persons, to control artificial or to control their environment. An alternative application area for brain computer interfaces (BCIs) lies in the field of multimedia communication. To develop systems for usage in the field of assistive technology or multimedia communication, many aspects of BCI systems are currently being investigated. Research area include evaluation of invasive and noninvasive technologies to measure brain activity, evaluation of control signals, development of algorithms for translation of brain signals into computer commands and the development of new BCI application. In this paper I give an introduction to some of the aspects of BCI research mentioned above, present a concrete example of a BCI system, and open problems.
