“MILITARY WANTS TO STUDY MIND-READING”
“Here\'s a mind-bending idea: The U.S. military is paying scientists to study ways to read people\'s thoughts.
The hope is that the research could someday lead to a gadget capable of translating the thoughts of soldiers who suffered brain injuries in combat or even stroke patients in hospitals. But the research also raises concerns that such mind-reading technology could be used to interrogate the enemy.
Armed with a $4 million grant from the Army, scientists are studying brain signals to try to decipher what a person is thinking and to whom the person wants to direct the message.
The project is a collaboration among researchers at the University of California, Irvine; Carnegie Mellon University; and the University of Maryland…
In the future, scientists hope to develop thought-recognition software that would allow a computer to speak or type out a person\'s thought,” quoting CNN.
