Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of NAUN Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

Abstract: Comparison of the Accuracy of different off-line methods for classification Electroencephalograph (EEG) signals, obtained from Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) devices are investigated in this paper. BCI is a technology that allows people to interact directly or indirectly with their environment only by using brain activity. But, the method of signal acquisition is non-invasive, resulting in significant data loss. In addition, the received signals do not contain only useful information. All this requires careful selection of the method for the classification of the received signals. The main purpose of this paper is to provide a fair and extensive comparison of some commonly employed classification methods under the same conditions so that the assessment of different classifiers will be more convictive. In this study, we investigated the accuracy of the classification of the received signals with classifiers based on AdaBoost (AB), Decision Tree (DT), k-Nearest Neighbor (kNN), Gaussian SVM, Linear SVM, Polynomial SVM, Random Forest (RF), Random Forest Regression ( RFR ). We used only basic parameters in the classification, and we did not apply fine optimization of the classification results. The obtained results show suitable algorithms for the classification of EEG signals. This would help young researchers to achieve interesting results in this field faster.
