How Hackers Could Get Inside your Head With ‘Brain Malware’
by Victoria Turk – August 3, 2016
The idea of securing our thoughts is a real concern with the introduction of brain-computer interfaces. Researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle say that we need to act fast to implement a privacy and security framework to prevent our brain signals from being used against us before the technology really takes off.
Mind-Controlled Robo-Skeleton Enables Paraplegics to Regain Some Motion
by Bret Stetka – August 16, 2016
Patients paralyzed by a spinal cord injury can face a grim and grueling recovery process—one in which regaining function is far from a sure thing. But a new study published last week in Scientific Reports may provide some hope to those suffering from paraplegia. Scientific American MIND spoke with neuroprosthetic pioneer, founder of Duke University’s Center for Neuroengineering and lead study author Miguel A. L. Nicolelis about the findings and the field in general.
Google Brain Notes that AI ‘Humanist Thinking’ Can’t Be Achieved Without Diversity
by Kayleigh Bateman – August 15, 2016
Google Brain is a group at Google that focuses on ‘deep learning’, which involves a deep neutral network to leverage massive amounts of data to solve task. Jeff Dean, Head of Google Brain, fears that because computer labs only staff computer scientists, that a single world view could take shape from this bias. He believes that this could impede the development of news ways of thinking.
