Brain computer interface (BCI) systems based on the steady state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) provide higher information transfer rates and require shorter training time than BCI systems using other brain signals. It has been widely used in brain science, rehabilitation engineering, biomedical engineering and intelligent information processing. In this paper, we present a real-time mobile phone dialing system based on SSVEP, and it is more portable than other dialing system because the flashing dial interface is set on a small tablet. With this online BCI system, we can take advantage of this system based on SSVEP to identify the specific frequency on behalf of a number using canonical correlation analysis (CCA) method and dialed out successfully without using any physical movements such as finger tapping. This phone dialing system will be promising to help disable patients to improve the quality of lives.
Reducing noise in a video sequence is of vital important in many real-world applications. One popular method is block matching collaborative filtering. However, the main drawback of this method is that noise standard deviation for the whole video sequence is known in advance. In this paper, we present a tensor based denoising framework that considers 3D patches instead of 2D patches. By collecting the similar 3D patches non-locally, we employ the low-rank tensor decomposition for collaborative filtering. Since we specify the non-informative prior over the noise precision parameter, the noise variance can be inferred automatically from observed video data. Therefore, our method is more practical, which does not require knowing the noise variance. The experimental on video denoising demonstrates the effectiveness of our proposed method.
