BCI Signal Classification using a Riemannian-based kernel

Abstract : The use of spatial covariance matrix as feature is investigated for motor imagery EEG-based classification. A new kernel is derived by establishing a connection with the Riemannian geometry of symmetric positive definite matrices. Different kernels are tested, in combination with support vector machines, on a past BCI competition dataset. We demonstrate that this new approach outperforms significantly state of the art results without the need for spatial filtering.
