Imagine being able to prepare for your next meeting entirely with your thoughts. Thanks to the advancement of brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), this possibility may soon become a reality.
It may sound like something out of science fiction movies: humans operating equipment with their minds.
However, it is no longer the future; it is becoming a reality thanks to brain-computer interfaces – Advanced technology on brain-computer interface was showcased at the exhibition area of the 2023 Zhongguancun (ZGC) Forum, held in Beijing from May 25 to 30, including brain-controlled typing, brain-controlled drone, brain-controlled robot skeleton, BMI for disaster search and rescue, BMI for remote control…
However, others may be concerned that devices may be hacked, that uneven access to BCI technology will exist, and that long-term bodily repercussions would be unknown… The question is, will we be prepared?
A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a device that translates neural data into commands that can be used to operate external software or hardware, such as a computer or robotic arm. BMI is frequently utilised as an aided living device for people.
