This chapter begins with a brief discussion of the future of brain-computer interface (BCI) technology. It then discusses the problems that must be solved in three crucial areas in order to achieve truly practical and effective BCIs. These areas are: signal acquisition hardware, validation and dissemination, and reliability. With improved signal-acquisition hardware, convincing clinical validation, effective dissemination models, and, probably most important of all, with increased reliability, BCIs are poised to become a major new technology for people with disabilities—and possibly for the general population as well.

Keywords:   brain-computer interface, BCI systems, signal acquisition hardware, validation, dissemination, reliability
