Ensemble of SVMs for Improving Brain Computer Interface P300 Speller Performances
This paper addresses the problem of signal responses variability within a single subject in P300 speller Brain-Computer Interfaces. We propose here a method to cope with these variabilities by considering a single learner for each acquisition session. Each learner consists of a channel selection procedure and a classifier. Our algorithm has been benchmarked with the data and the results of the BCI 2003 competition dataset and we clearly show that our approach yields to state-of-the art results.
