Facebook Team Works on Mind Reading Power Technology
By F9 Team : 20-Apr-2017
In the annual developer conference F8 2017 at the McEnery Convention Center on Wednesday the social network giant, Facebook revealed a remarkable project called the Silent Speech. It aims to allow the users to use their thought process to type messages at a rate of 100 words per minute.
Regina Dugan, the facebook executive and former director of (DARPA) Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency had specified at the Silicon Valley event that speech has been an essential and compressed algorithm. Hence the reason they love creative writers and poets as they are eventually better at the reduction of their thinking power into words. This new programme had grown from a rough notion about 6 months ago to be the prime focus of a dedicated team of more than 60 scientists, engineers, and system integrators, headed by Dugan for the mission to connect the world.
However, the main lead said that since they have just begun to work on the project, the early stages of it will require up to date technology to detect the brainwaves without the need for any invasive surgery. Dugan further assures that they are not going to decode the random conception of humans.
The chief executive Mark Zuckerberg also mentions in a post on his official page that this scheme will one day let people have a choice to share an idea just like one does with photos and videos. He later adds that the firm wants to turn this hi-tech applied science into a wearable technology to be manufactured on a large scale business.
