Brain-Computer Interface will help people turning Telepathic- Scientists say

According to recent research by a scientist, neural interface that links human brains to computer using artificial intelligence will allow people to read other people's thoughts. The new report by Royal Society will benefit such technology but also warns there could be severe risks if it is in wrong hands.

What is the Brain Computer Interface (BCI)?

Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is the collaboration between the brain and device enabling signals from the brain to direct some external activity, including control of a cursor or a prosthetic limb. The interface will allow a communication pathway directly between the brain and the object to be controlled. By reading signals through array of neurons and using computer chips to translate the messages into action, BCI will enable the person suffering from paralysis to control the wheelchair easily.

Unveiling Neuralink thread is Elon Musk who believes that it can connect the human brain with computers.

Companies like Facebook and Neuralink by Elon Musk are already developing BCI, and according to report by 2040, neural interfaces will be an established option for treating disease like Alzheimer.

More Applications in the pipeline-

Shortly, there are many more futuristic applications that can change human interaction. This include- brain implants that allow people to virtually taste, smell and see without actually physically experiencing the sensation. This will further boost people's memory improving their vision and allowing transmitting thoughts.

The report says, “People could become telepathic to some degree, able to converse not only without speaking but without words – through access to each other’s thoughts at a conceptual level. This could enable unprecedented collaboration with colleagues and deeper conversations with friends."

In July, Facebook published a paper in Nature Communication describing the headset having the ability to transfer person's thoughts directly onto a computer screen. As for now, the device can only decode a small selection of words but the firm hopes it will one day work seamlessly to transcribe thoughts.

Similarly, Neuralink unveiled "threads" that can link the human brain directly to the computer. The main aim is to help paraplegics control computers to improve communication skill.
