  • In this paper, we evaluate the possibility of detecting continuous changes in the user's cognitive workload using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) We dissect the source of meaning in a large collection of n-backs and argue that the problem of controlling the content of a participant's mind poses a major problem for calibrating an algorithm using black box machine learning. We therefore ... read more
