Call for Papers - SI on CTNFBCI

Special Issue on Current Trends and New Frontiers of Brain-Computer Interface

Aims and Scope

In recent years, advancements in the Brain Computer Interface (BCI) technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are enabling innovative applications in heterogenous fields ranging from healthcare to security and authentication. These diverse solutions owe their success primarily to non-invasive BCIs that can be employed more easily with respect to invasive ones, which require surgery, and are, therefore, more readily accepted by humans.

By analyzing brain signals, existing methods extract relevant features to perform, among others, person identification, emotion recognition, or motor imagery and show that a fundamental step is associated with how brain signals are employed. The main aim of this Special Issue is to collect the most innovative works exploiting the BCI technology (be it non-invasive, semi-invasive, or invasive) in support of practical and concrete problems that must be addressed in the upcoming Industry 5.0 where humans and robots will collaborate closely across diverse fields.
