There is currently no technology that can read people’s minds. However, in the future, special devices may appear that will be able to assess what a person is thinking. The terms of this “Lente.ru” were designated within the framework of the project by a representative of the i-BrainTech company Gennady Kovalenko cyber reality,
“Although it is not possible to read minds in the ordinary sense of the word, neurotechnology can record the brain’s bioelectrical activity. If a suitable mathematical tool appears that will decode this activity, we will be able to determine whether How a patient with locked-in person syndrome reacts to certain stimuli – for example, to pills containing letters. This way we can understand what a person who is deprived of the opportunity to speak and walk is thinking, ”explained the expert.
In his opinion, people will be skeptical about neurointerfaces directly connected to the brain for a long time to come: “Not every person will agree to open their mind.” However, neurointerfaces are already helping recovery from serious injuries and strokes.
However, Kovalenko recalled that a non-invasive technique already exists, which does not require a complex operation to implant a chip, but which can record the brain’s bioelectric activity and decrypt it using artificial intelligence. allows for. These signals can be used to control a prosthesis or to immerse a person in a gaming virtual environment.
Project cyber reality Dedicated to how high technologies are changing the lives of Russians and humanity in general. He talks about how developments that seemed spectacular a few years ago are now providing protection, helping people in everyday life, saving lives, expanding the horizons of people with disabilities. and taking care of the elderly.
