Our society's information technology advancements have resulted in the increasingly problematic issue of information overloadVi.e., we havemore access to information than we can possibly process. This is nowhere more apparent than in the volume of imagery and video that we can access on a daily basisVfor the general public, availability of YouTube video and Google Images, or for the image analysis professional tasked with searching security video or satellite reconnaissance. Which images to look at and how to ensure we see the images that are of most interest to us, begs the question of whether there are smart ways to triage this volume of imagery. Over the past decade, computer vision research has focused on the issue of ranking and indexing imagery. However, computer vision is limited in its ability to identify interesting imagery, particularly as Binteresting[ might be defined by an individual. In this paper we describe our efforts in developing brain? computer interfaces (BCIs) which synergistically integrate computer vision and human vision so as to construct a system for image triage. Our approach exploits machine learning for real-time decoding of brain signals which are recorded noninvasively via electroencephalography (EEG). The signals we decode are specific for events related to imagery attracting a user's attention. We describe two architectures we have developed for this type of cortically coupled computer vision and discuss potential applications and challenges for the future
