Brain reading practical usage can be seen very soon in our day to day life. Various research work is being conducted in universities to integrated this technology to be used by physically disabled people to conduct their life easily.
ROBOT ARM MOVEMENT BY BRAIN
Once a science fiction, the use of brain reading technology has improved tremendously in recent years. One of the most interesting and practical uses we’ve seen tested so far comes from researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL).
Thanks to a machine-learning algorithm, a robot arm and a brain-computer interface, these researchers have managed to create a means for tetraplegic patients (those who can’t move their upper or lower body) to interact with the world due to various reason such as (brain signal are not reaching the hand and leg muscle).
In tests, the robot arm would perform simple tasks like moving around an obstacle. The algorithm would then interprets signals from the brain using an EEG cap which can easily worn into your head and automatically determine when the arm had made a move that the brain considered incorrect, for example moving too close to the obstacle or going too fast.
with the passage of time and advancement in algorithm robot learns to adjust with individuals preferences and brain signals. In future this kind of technology could be used in wheelchairs controlled by the brain, assistance machines for tetraplegic patients or for high end security login.
HIGH END SECURITY LOGIN USING BRAIN SIGNAL
this is another use case of brain reading, enabling user to login to their personal computing system just by looking to their pc screen on which various images will be scrolled on, let say ten images out of which only one image is your password, as soon as your chosen image appear on the screen it stimulates specific type of brain signal getting recorded by ECG machine further this signal will passes through machine learning algorithms to filter noise signal and provide optimum results.
