Brainsourcing is a novel crowdsourcing paradigm

2020-09-28T12:06:58+03:00

It is now reality to mine the relevance to or interest of people directly from the human mind. With the help of EEG interpreted via machine learning that is possible for the first time. In their research paper, Keith M. Davis, Lauri Kangassalo, Michiel Spapé and Tuukka Ruotsalo introduce brainsourcing. It is a novel crowdsourcing paradigm that utilizes brain responses recorded via EEG of a group of people. [...]
