One Giant Bite Woman with Quadriplegia Feeds Herself Chocolate Using Mind-Controlled Robot Arm

BCI

Brain-Computer Interfacing is connecting the brain to a computer so it can manipulate objects on a screen, or run commands. In the longer term, BCI might be used to radically enhance intelligence -- outsourcing core decision-making processes to computers capable of performing superior judgments, for instance. 

Current StatusEdit

Today, Brain-Computer Interfacing is crude. The most that has been accomplished is using BCI to allow a paralyzed patient to move a robotic arm and feed themselves. From the perspective of the paralyzed person, this is a very big deal.

Long Term PossibilitiesEdit

  • integration of BCI with swarm robotics
  • computer-augmented visualization 
  • dream recording
  • thought debugging
  • direct mind-to-mind communication
  • translation of "mentalese"
  • biofeedback, better self-awareness
  • direct thought recording and tagging
