From physiological speech quality assessment to adaptive games

Subjective test methods are typically used to assess the perceived quality of transmitted media. As technology advances fast also physiological measures (e.g. brain signals) can be used as additional source of information on the state of the consumer but also on the reactions the consumed media evoked. Our findings demonstrate that physiological measures i.e. parameter of event-related potentials for short-term influences and changes of alpha frequency band power for long-term influences can be used in media quality testing. Those measures were mainly applied to non-interactive services such as speech and video transmissions and have been transferred to interactive scenarios such as gaming. With our adaptive framework for cognitive trainings users are kept in the flow zone.
