Interesante que Facebook ande detras de lo mismo que Elon... Esto si que podria ser revolucionario:
Last week at Facebook’s F8 conference, former DARPA head Regina Dugan, who leads its research group called Building 8, revealed that Facebook was working on a Brain Machine Interface (BMI) project. Yes, Facebook, whose goal is to connect everyone in the world to its network, now is exploring how to navigate the ultimate last mile problem — the gap between your brain and the keyboard. And for good measure Dugan talked about her group’s work on a second project that could eliminate the screen by communicating text messages through your skin.
Based on the DARPA model of hiring scientists for two-year sprints to determine viability of ambitious projects, Dugan hired Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Mark Chevillet to work on a system that would transfer brain signals to text. Using noninvasive optical light sensors, Facebook could analyze the neuro-signature of words that a user consciously directs to the “pre-speech” brain region — basically a launch pad for what someone wants to say or write — and then produce it on a computer screen or file, at a rate of 100 words a minute.
Still, I wonder. If by, say, 2025, we can accurately interpret the brain patterns of words in the regions where people consciously intend the thoughts to be shared, who’s to say that by 2040 or so, we won’t get good at shooting optical beams at your skull to figure out what you’re really thinking.
