Fifty years ago, visionary thinkers proposed that humans could greatly benefit from interaction with computers.  Over the past several decades, we have begun to fulfill this promise.  However, the increasing ability of computers to assist humans is progressively highlighting the shortcomings of our ability to communicate with machines. 

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) could overcome this issue by directly interfacing the brain with the outside world.  Over the past decade, BCI research has grown from a few isolated technical demonstrations into a very active research field that is producing hundreds of publications each year.  In this talk, I will give an overview of the state of the art in BCI research, and will discuss the substantial prospects and current problems of brain-based communication devices.
