MASTER INTERNSHIP in Emotion recognition using EEG recordings on resource-constrained hardware platforms



Neuromorphic devices are now developed to accelerate deep learning at the edge. While a lot of devices are emerging, no comparison between them is available yet, and engineers are required to test several devices to make a choice. This requires time and knowledge of the underlying hardware, which is sometimes impossible in small data engineering teams.

We aimed to develop a benchmarking platform to help designers and engineers to select the best device suitable for their application.

The Edge-AI and Vision group of CSEM is looking to expand the portfolio of applications running on edge devices. In this regard, the group is looking for a student to implement an emotion recognition classifier from public electroencephalographic (EEG) data and deploy it on several edge devices.


  1. Implementation of State-of-the-Art solutions for emotion classification from EEG signals
  2. Optimize the algorithm to allow deployment on resource-constrained hardware platforms
  3. Evaluate the performance of the algorithm for each device
