GOAL Current brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are usually based on various, often supervised, signal processing methods. The disadvantage of supervised methods is the requirement to calibrate them with recently acquired subject-specific training data. Here, we present a novel algorithm for dimensionality reduction (spatial filter), that is ideally suited(More)
We examine two methods which are used to deal with complex machine learning problems: compressed sensing and model compression. We discuss both methods in the context of feed-forward artificial neural networks and develop the backpropagation method in compressed parameter space. We further show that compressing the weights of a layer of a multilayer(More)
The ability of today's robots to autonomously support humans in their daily activities is still limited. To improve this, predictive human-machine interfaces (HMIs) can be applied to better support future interaction between human and machine. To infer upcoming context-based behavior relevant brain states of the human have to be detected. This is achieved(More)
In neuroscience large amounts of data are recorded to provide insights into cerebral information processing and function. The successful extraction of the relevant signals becomes more and more challenging due to increasing complexities in acquisition techniques and questions addressed. Here, automated signal processing and machine learning tools can help(More)
This work introduces the architecture of a novel brain-arm haptic interface usable to improve the operation of complex robotic systems, or to deliver a fine rehabilitation therapy to the human upper limb. The proposed control scheme combines different approaches from the areas of robotics, neuroscience and human-machine interaction in order to overcome the(More)
