Title: BCI UX: Evaluating user focused paradigms for the purpose of enhancing Brain-Computer Interaction
Abstract: The webinar will cover two research studies on user focused paradigms, step by step, from paradigm design to lab experiments, and the analysis of the research outcomes based on advanced and complex signal processing and machine learning techniques), towards the transfer to real-life applications. Specifically, the research focuses on improving the BCI interaction by designing the BCI paradigms according to users' needs and desires, making it easier and more natural for them to interact with the future BCI system. In particular, the often monotonous tasks of BCI systems are replaced with more engaging activities and the context of used mental state detection is investigated instead of the strict activities requested by usual BCIs. As mental tasks, cognitive processes and motor imagery tasks are investigated in the two scenarios.
