Computer Program to Read Human Thoughts!  A research that appeared recently in the journal PLoS Biology has revealed about a way of using a computer program to help read a person’s brain and then put the findings into words.

A group of neuroscientists at the University of California Berkeley said that the technique could be beneficial for patients who have speech impairment or are affected by stroke and degenerative disease. The research is said to be capable of taking mind reading to a new level.

In order to reach at the conclusion, the study researchers conducted an experiment in which they enrolled brain surgery patients. They inserted electrodes in the skulls of the patients and connected them with a computer program. They did it so they could know the working of temporal lobe which is associated with the processing of speech and images.

It was revealed that the computer program was successful in analyzing the brain and could also reproduce the Read more…

Edible Microchips, Biometric Identity Systems And Mind Reading Computers

January 19, 2012 4 comments

 

As technology continues to advance at an exponential rate, will we someday find ourselves living in a “scientific dictatorship” where virtually everything that we do, say and think is monitored and controlled by technology?  To many of you that may sound like a wild assertion, but just keep reading.  Our world is changing faster than ever before, and scientists have some absolutely wild things planned for our future.  As you read this, they are feverishly developing edible microchips, cutting edge biometric identity systems, and mind reading computers.  Many futurists envision a world where someday nearly all humans are embedded with microchips and have thousands of tiny nanobots living inside of them.  The idea is that we can “take control of our own evolution” and use technology to “improve” humanity.  But very few of those futurists address the potential downsides.  The truth is that all of this technology could one day be used by a totalitarian government to establish a dystopian nightmare where nobody has any liberties and freedoms whatsoever.

The world of tomorrow is not going to be anything like the world of today, and most people have no idea how dramatically the world is changing.

For instance, many people have never even heard of “edible microchips”.

Unfortunately, they are Read more…

EFF Releases ‘Know Your Digital Rights’ Guide to Your Constitutional Liberties

San Francisco – Your computer, your phone, and your other digital devices hold vast amounts of personal information about you and your family. Can police officers enter your home to search your laptop? Do you have to give law enforcement officials your encryption keys or passwords? If you are pulled over when driving, can the officer search your cell phone?

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has answers to these questions in our new “Know Your Digital Rights” guide, including easy-to-understand tips on interacting with police officers and other law enforcement officials.

“With smart phones, tablet computers, and laptops, we carry around with us an unprecedented amount of sensitive personal information,” said EFF Staff Attorney Hanni Fakhoury. “That smart phone in your pocket right now could contain email from your doctor or your kid’s teacher, not to mention detailed contact information for all of your friends and family members. Your laptop probably holds even more data — your Internet browsing history, family photo albums, and maybe even things like an electronic copy of your taxes or your employment agreement. This is Read more…

Intelligence agencies eye emerging ‘mind-reading’ technologies

Scientists have discovered how to decode human brainwaves and intelligence agencies are rubbing their hands.

In possibly the greatest potential breakthrough for spy agencies, mind-reading machines are about to become a reality.

According to research published in the online journal Public Library of Science Biology, a machine that can process and display visual brain signals is within science’s grasp.

 The claim is based on research undertaken by scientists at the University of Glasgow. The tests were conducted on a group of volunteers that were shown images of randomly selected human faces reacting with various emotions like astonishment, contentment, joy, anger and fear. As part of the experiment, the images of the faces were partially covered so only parts of the face—eyes and mouths—were discernible.

The subjects were tasked to name the emotion they saw on the images of faces. As they did, electrode sensors monitored their brainwaves. The brain activity crossed a wide spectrum and changed significantly as Read more…

California releases 450 ‘violent and dangerous’ criminals after computer glitch sets them free

May 27, 2011 Comments off

Hundreds of violent and dangerous prisoners have been released on unsupervised parole in California because of a computer glitch, according to the state’s inspector general.

Software errors led prison officials to mistakenly release some 450 inmates deemed to have a ‘high risk for violence’, as part of a programme meant to ease overcrowding in the state’s jails.

And more than 1,000 additional convicts said to present a high risk of committing drugs crimes, property crimes and other offences were also freed.

Overcrowded: Hundreds of violent criminals have been released from prison early on unsupervised parole after a computer error Overcrowded: Hundreds of violent criminals have been released from prison early on unsupervised parole after a computer error

The news comes after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that California’s prisons are dangerously overcrowded, and upheld a ruling giving the state two years to slash prisoner numbers.

No attempt has since been made to return any of the offenders to prison or to put them on supervised parole schemes, inspector general spokesman Renee Hansen told the LA Times.

All of the released prisoners have been placed on so-called ‘non-revocable parole’ – meaning that they do not have to report to parole officers and can only be sent back to prison if they are caught committing another crime.

Inmates who are gang members, sex criminals or violent criminals are determined to pose a risk of re-offending and are not thought to be suitable for the scheme.

But a report by the inspector general found that the computer programme that officials Read more…

New Internet tech transmits data at 26 terabytes per second

In a dramatic breakthrough, scientists have learned how to use optical fiber to transmit data over a single laser at speeds that dwarf even today’s fastest Internet connections.

Using techniques called “fast Fourier transform” and “orthogonal frequency division multiplexing,” scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany were able to stitch 300 individual data streams into colors beamed by a single laser, which were then picked apart at the other end.

The result of their experiment was a blazing fast transfer rate of 26 terabytes per second.

A terabyte is the equivalent of 1,000 gigabytes — the measurement used to grade most consumer level computer hard drives.

A more complex version of the experiment was previously used to demonstrate the transmission of data at over 100 terabytes per second, but it required hundreds of lasers.

This latest research shows that similar speeds are possible with far less energy output.

Such bandwidth would enable an Internet user to download the entire library of congress in about 10 seconds, according to the BBC.

The experiment was outlined in the latest edition of the scientific journal Nature Photonics.
