In this 90 minute tutorial, I will present state of the art and some original results in brain computer interface. Brain computer/machine interfaces (BCI/BMI) are an enabling technology for neuroprosthetics, neuro-rehabilitation, entertainment and computer gaming applications. These all relay on the decoding of brain activity and its use for computer/machine control. This is achieved typically based on a monitoring of brain electrical activity by electroencephalogram (EEG). In the talk a review of state of the art visual, auditory, and haptic modality BCI /BMI paradigm technologies will be presented. The emphasis will be put on auditory BCI /BMI. A concept of auditory steady state responses combined with spatial sound localization paradigms will be introduced. Real and virtual auditory fields experimental interfacing prototypes for interactive management of computer applications or real prosthetic devices (wheelchairs, etc.) will be discussed. The talk will conclude with future challenges and open problems in interactive auditory and haptic BCI /BMI technologies.

Bio: Tomasz M. Rutkowski received his M.Sc. in Electronics and Ph.D. in Telecommunications and Acoustics from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland, in 1994 and 2002, respectively. He received a postdoctoral training at the Multimedia Laboratory, Kyoto University, and in 2005-2010 he worked as a research scientist at RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan. Currently he serves as an assistant professor at the University of Tsukuba and as a visiting scientist at RIKEN . Professor Rutkowski’s research interests include computational neuroscience, especially brain-computer interfacing technologies, computational modeling of brain processes, neurobiological signal and information processing, multimedia interfaces and interactive technology design. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, the Japan Neuroscience Society, the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology and Signal Processing societies, and the Asia-Pacific Signal and Information Processing Association (APSIPA). He is a member of the Editorial Board of “Frontiers in Fractal Physiology” and serves as a reviewer for “IEEE Transactions for Neural Networks”, “IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics – Part B”, and “Cognitive Neurodynamics.”
