Research heralds better and bidirectional brain-computer interfaces

A pair of studies, one from Stanford and another from the University of Geneva, exemplify the speed with which brain-computer interfaces are advancing; and while you won’t be using one instead of a mouse and keyboard any time soon, even in its nascent form the tech may prove transformative for the disabled. 537 more words

Researchers use machine learning to pull interest signals from readers brain waves

How will people sift and navigate info intelligently in the future, when theres even more data being pushed at them? Information overload is a problemwe struggle with now, so the need for better ways to filter and triagedigital contentis only going to stepup as the MBs save piling up. 1,111 more words

Humans can now move complex robot arms just by thinking

Most robotic arm systems required a very complex and very invasive brain implant… until now. Researchers at the University of Minnesota have created a new system that requires only a sexy helmet and a bit of thinking, paving the way to truly mind-controlled robotic tools. 250 more words
