Unspoken Speech Detection Using a Non-Invasive Brain Computer Interface
Region:South Fraser
City:Surrey, BC
School:Semiahmoo Secondary
Abstract:An 8 channel EEG device was constructed using an Arduino microcontroller and a TI ADS1298 in order to detect imagined musical note rhythms. A five letter word represented by 5 individual rhythms was detected in an average of 39.3 seconds using a novel classification method. This is quicker than the existing P300 Speller mechanism, known to detect a 5 letter word in 105 seconds.
