Brain-Computer Codec Chip
China Electronics Corp and Tianjin University have created a mind reading chip which has been dubbed the "Brain Talker". A per reports this chip is capable of reading Human brainwave activity and effectively translating it to empower users to operate a computer via their thoughts.
This technology, still in its infancy is called BCI an acronym for 'brain-computer interface' The chip itself is BC3 [Brain-Computer Codec Chip]. Such a technology has been theorized for many years in the sci-fi realm but has only recently seen the light of realities day.
Now, Chinese researchers have actually created a working BCI device, with the Brain Talker debuting at the 2019 Third Annual World Intelligence Congress in Tianjin. China.
The technology identifies minor nerve information generated by the cerebral cortex, and decodes this information to enable communication / interface between a human brain and a computer.
"The signals transmitted and processed by the brain are submerged in the background noise. This BC3 [Brain-Computer Codec Chip] has the ability to discriminate minor neural electrical signals and decode their information efficiently which can greatly enhance the speed and accuracy of brain-computer interfaces," - Ming Dong, director of Tianjin University's Academy of Medical Engineering & Transnational Medicine,
Practical applications for such devices outside the scope of Big Brother would be in devices designed for those with limited mobility, in medical devices, and in gaming and entertainment apps. It is not stated how the Brain-Computer Codec Chip will be 'installed' but it si assumed that it is not an implant but worn outside of the body not actually inside a user’s brain. Implanted chips of this nature may be a few generations away yet - thats techno generations not human generations ....
China is not alone in this futuristic '1984ish' technology. Intel has dibs on your American mind as the company’s researchers plan to have chips that let you control computers with your thoughts, similar to the Asian version. The freaky and frightening aspect of the intel chip is that to read your brain waves, you’ll need to have minute chips implanted directly into your brain, that's right 'Intel inside'.
