Towards personalized brain-computer interfaces

In the early days of Brain-Computer Interfaces, the same processing was universally applied, leading to categorize some users as BCI-illiterate if they obtained poor performance. It is now acknowledged that one-size-fits-all BCI are not appropriate, and that on the contrary, they must be adapted to the user. This does not only concern the processing but also the training and the hardware. Tailoring BCI with the user in the loop makes their development more time-consuming, but yields better performance and acceptation. In this talk I will cover the subject of BCI personalization, looking at the progress that has been and remains to be made.
