With the ever increasing role of computerized machines in society, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) system has become an increasingly important part of our daily lives. HCI determines the effective utilization of the available information flow of the computing, communication, and display technologies. In recent years, there has been a tremendous interest in introducing intuitive interfaces that can recognize the user's body movements and translate them into machine commands. For the neural…

A Survey: EMG Signal-Based Controller for Human–Computer Interaction
TLDR
EMG is one of the least explored mechanism form of biosignal to be deployed in HCI, and its studies are useful for neuromuscular system as certain diseases may slow down muscle contraction and muscle firing leading to paralysis of muscle.

TLDR
In this research a wireless EMG amplifier circuit is successfully designed and fabricated to capture the EMG signals from a muscle responsible for finger movement, and the Hierarchical Temporal Memory algorithm is used classify and recognize EMG signal resulting from opening or closing fingers.
IDENTIFYING HAND GESTURES USING SEMG FOR HUMAN MACHINE INTERACTION
TLDR
The growth of a neural networks classifier for classifying the one-of-a-variety hand moves of human forearm and results showed that bit transfer rate (BTR) achieved highest value of 37.71 bits/sec.
