Researchers hope to invent a human mind reading chip that can be applied in many fields, from health and education to security and entertainment.
Radio Sputnik reported that Chinese Electronics Group engineers in cooperation with Tianjin University have created a chip called Brain Talker . This device has the ability to read human brain wave activities and create communication mechanisms so that users can control computers.
The technology, called 'brain computer interface' or BCI , has been theoretical for decades and appeared in sci-fi books and movies such as Neuromancer, Firefox, Ghost in the Shell. (Casing) and Robocop (Robot police).
Now, Chinese engineers and scholars have made the next breakthrough, actually creating an operational BCI device. Last month, Brain Talker product was launched at the 3rd Annual International Intelligence Conference held in Tianjin.
According to Mr. Ming Dong - Director of Tianjin Institute of Medical Technology, the operation mechanism of Brain Talker chip stems from the ability to identify small neural information synthesized and decoded by this information to click operates a communication mechanism between the user's brain and a computer.
'Signals that are transmitted and processed by the brain are always submerged in background noise. The Brain Talker chip is able to distinguish small neural signals and decode information effectively to enhance the speed and accuracy of the brain computer interface significantly , 'Director Ming said. strong. He said: "Brain Talker makes BCI technology an effective tool for civilian fields because the chip is easy to carry and simpler."
Cheng Longlong - data analysis scientist with China Electronics Group - said engineers are working to improve the performance of Brain Talker technology to apply in areas such as medicine, education, play electronics . A good example for this application is to help people with motor neuron disease.
According to local media, China fully holds intellectual property rights for Brain Talker chip technology.
