Robots aren’t supposed to make mistakes. But if they do, a team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and Boston University have developed a way to correct the robot’s actions by using a person’s electroencephalography (EEG) brain signals.
The human needs to wear an EEG cap that measures their brain signals. The system looks for brain signals called “error-related potentials” (ErrPs) that are generated when the brain notices a mistake has been made. As the robot indicates which choice it plans to make, the system uses ErrPs to determine if the human agrees with the decision.
