Emotiv Brain Computer Interface

Yesterday, Tanzeem Choudhury gave an overview of her work on modeling social networks based on sensor data. The machine learning was beyond my skills, but the core idea of basing the social network on real data and her early results were really fascinating.

I was also intrigued by her work on NeuroPhone as well. She and her colleagues were using Emotiv's Brain Computer Interface to interact with mobile phones, based on detecting brain patterns that fire off when people recognized the photo of the person they wanted to call.
