This paper presents a classification technique using Fuzzy Logic Inference System to identify and predict the partial seizure from the epileptic EEG data. The presented work covers the initial findings related to some of the brain conditions in different scenarios so that the detection system can produce warning signals for epileptic seizure. Electroencephalography (EEG) plays an important role, especially EEG based health diagnosis of brain disorder. However, the common clinical approaches fall short when attempting to design an automated system to detect and predict partial seizure for epileptic patients. The situation becomes even more difficult when the detection system is being designed for a ubiquitous application in which the patient is not confined to the hospital and the device is attached to him/her externally while the person is involved in daily chores. Therefore, the work presented here includes embedded hardware system that works with classification algorithm on real EEG signals, in a ubiquitous setting. The performance of the system is shown under various conditions of daily activities. In order to make all this in a ubiquitous form factor, the algorithm for classification and detection of the pre-seizure conditions should be tremendously simple for processing the signal in a low cost ubiquitous microcontroller. This has been achieved in this work through the use of Fuzzy Classifiers based on the lookup table to empower system simplicity. The algorithm also utilizes certain statistical features from the EEG signal that are used as features to the classifier logic. While the clinical testing of the device is still awaited, various scenarios have been implemented using a custom-built hardware simulator based on empirical modeling of the real EEG signals. This shown various performance modes of the system and confirms the detection of pre-seizure state for a number of parameters related to the patients such as age, gender, etc… By using this type of fuzzy logic classifier, we were able to get over 90% accurate classifications for the partial seizure
