Evolution of a Brain-Computer Interface Mouse via Genetic Programming
We propose the use of genetic programming as a means to evolve brain-computer interfaces for mouse control. Our objective is to synthesise complete systems, which analyse electroencephalographic signals and directly transform them into pointer movements, almost from scratch, the only input provided by us in the process being the set of visual stimuli to be used to generate recognisable brain activity. Experimental results with our GP approach are very promising and compare favourably with those produced by support vector machines.
