Summary of "A Unified Novel Neural Network Approach and a Prototype Hardware Implementation for Ultra-Low Power EEG Classification."

This paper introduces a novel electroencephalogram (EEG) data classification scheme together with its implementation in hardware using an innovative approach. The proposed scheme integrates into a single, end-to-end trainable model a spatial filtering technique and a neural network based classifier. The spatial filters, as well as, the coefficients of the neural network classifier are simultaneously estimated during training. By using different time-locked spatial filters, we introduce for the first time the notion of "attention" in EEG processing, which allows for the efficient capturing of the temporal dependencies and/ or variability of the EEG sequential data. One of the most important benefits of our approach is that the proposed classifier is able to construct highly discriminative features directly from raw EEG data and, at the same time, to exploit the function approximation properties of neural networks, in order to produce highly accurate classification results. The evaluation of the proposed methodology, using public available EEG datasets, indicates that it outperforms the standard EEG classification approach based on filtering and classification as two separated steps. Moreover, we present a prototype implementation of the proposed scheme in state-of-the-art reconfigurable hardware; our novel implementation outperforms by more than an order of magnitude, in terms of power efficiency, the conventional CPU-based approaches.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A computer architecture, implementable in either hardware or software, modeled after biological neural networks. Like the biological system in which the processing capability is a result of the interconnection strengths between arrays of nonlinear processing nodes, computerized neural networks, often called perceptrons or multilayer connectionist models, consist of neuron-like units. A homogeneous group of units makes up a layer. These networks are good at pattern recognition. They are adaptive, performing tasks by example, and thus are better for decision-making than are linear learning machines or cluster analysis. They do not require explicit programming.

A research and development program initiated by the NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE to build knowledge sources for the purpose of aiding the development of systems that help health professionals retrieve and integrate biomedical information. The knowledge sources can be used to link disparate information systems to overcome retrieval problems caused by differences in terminology and the scattering of relevant information across many databases. The three knowledge sources are the Metathesaurus, the Semantic Network, and the Specialist Lexicon.
