New applications through revolutionary BNCI technologies

Digital Economy & Society department from European Commission shows an article about BNCI - Brain-Neural-Computer-Interaction. This area investigates how brain activity can be recorded and used to interact with an electronic device. It uses electroencephalography (EEG) in combination with electromyography (EMG) captured from muscles electrical signals.

BNCI is an information channel for sending messages and control commands direct from the brain to theexternal world. The critical progress needed for BNCI proliferation is not only in technical terms:
  • Economy of scale – BNCI should be made useful to a wider group of users. Beyond the design for people with disabilities, a possible spill over to mainstream technologies could reduce costs and increase performance.
  • Cool Design – In BNCI systems, in particular, the sensor should be cosmetically appealing to a broad range of users. Also, usability is of primary importance in people's perception.
  • Zero Training – Preparation time and the presence of experts to set up BNCI should be reduced in the future – ideally the user can use the BNCI system independently.
  • Interdisciplinary research - Stimulating increased networking and co-operation among engineering disciplines, computer science, neuroscience, psychology, medicine and bio-physiology.
