ADT BCI-Browser

Participants : Théodore Papadopoulo, Maureen Clerc.

Duration: 1 year

Most often, BCI techniques are demonstrated in simple toy applications made. The only "few" real BCI applications are specific developments and are not used much as they lack of functionality, maintenance, .... The goal of this development contract is to demonstrate a new approach to BCI, in which BCI interactions are integrated in existing applications. Ideally, the original software is not modified and not even recompiled. It is modified by providing either modified GUI libraries or providing extensions as plugins. As a proof of concept, we aim at modifying C++/Qt applications with a focus on web browsing, by redefining some of its basic interactions (mouse clicks, keyboard, ...) using some BCI components. In this manner, it might be possible to drive standard and state-of-the-art application using BCI and at a limited maintenance cost.

This contract is part of the AMDT initiative.

The OpenMEEG ADT aims at improving OpenMEEG along 3 main directions:

  1. Offer a user interface for the creation and verification of head models most importantly for a simpler management of non-nested head models.

  2. Improve the Python interface (extension and reliability). This will also be useful to develop new research axes (in connection with point 3).

  3. Enrich the available operators and refactor the code to offer new possibilities in OpenMEEG and reduce the cost of maintenance.

In addition to the expected gains in code maintenance, these improvements will allow a number of new – more sophisticated – applications as well as open OpenMEEG to a larger audience with a simplified interface for classical use-cases.
