Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The real-time classi cation of human movements by using surface electromyogram (EMG) signals is an important research issue in the development of a new input interface. However, the existing approaches detect irrelevant movements as the target movement, that is, false detection, if the number of the movements to be classi ed is large. In this research, we propose a new multi-class classi cation method (half-vs-half method) and apply it to an existing selective desensitization neural network. The result of the evaluation experiment under realistic conditions indicates that the proposed method is rather better than the conventional methods in terms of correct and false detections. The proposed method also does not require more computational time with an increase in the number of classes, complicated parameter setting, and kernel design, which provides a highly practical method for EMG pattern classi cation.
