Classification of EEG Signals Using Quantum Neural Network and Cubic Spline

Ehab AbdulRazzaq Hussein, Mariam Abdul-Zahra Raheem


The main aim of this paper is to propose Cubic Spline-Quantum Neural Network (CS-QNN) model for analysis and classification of Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. Experimental data used here were taken from seven different electrodes. The work has been done in three stages, normalization of the signals, extracting the features by Cubic Spline Technique (CST) and classification using Quantum Neural Network (QNN).  The simulation results showed that five types of EEG signals were classified with an average accuracy for seven electrodes that is 94.3% when training 70% of features while with an average accuracy of 92.84% when training 50% of features.
