Quel futur pour les “mindgames”

On commence à en savoir un peu plus sur les technologies employées par les casques Emotivet Neurosky, que nous avons déjà évoqués dans nos colonnes. Un article de Physorg détaille en effet le fonctionnement de ces nouvelles machines grand public. Elles reposent non pas sur une seule technologie, mais sur plusieurs, toutes assez anciennes. La première d’entre elles est l’EEG (électro-encéphalographie) qui permet de connaitre l’activité électrique des ondes cérébrales de l’utilisateur. Mais ces machines utilisent également l’EMG (électromyogramme) qui examine le mouvement des muscles, l’ECG (électrocardiogramme) qui analyse les battements du coeur et même la RED (Réponse électrodermale) qui mesure les microsudations émises par la peau en cas de stress.

Good Times brainwave app blocks phone calls when the user is busy, wins 1st prize ($30,000) of AT&T Hackathon. Developed in 24 hours only, ‘Good Times’, a brain-controlled application connects to the Necomimi brainwave cat ears and blocks phone calls when the user is busy at work or a conversation.

Good Times brainwave app blocks phone calls when the user is busy, wins 1st prize ($30,000) of AT&T Hackathon

Developed by Ruggero Scorcioni, the application won the 1st prize ($US 30,000) at Hackathon, hosted by AT&T and Ericsson in conjunction with the AT&T Developer Summit, which usually happens just before the start of the International CES in Las Vegas. Scorcioni was among the hundred developers to get a pair of Necomimi headset for free simply by turning up to the AT&T event.

The 41-year-old developer has researched brain wave science as well as written computer programs. After majoring in computer science in Italy, he came to the U.S. and earned PhD from George Mason University in Virginia in neuroscience. Wearable ‘neurocam’ records scenes when it detects user interest. (Credit: Neurowear) Keio University scientists have developed a “neurocam” — a wearable camera system that detects emotions, based on an analysis of the user’s brainwaves.

Omega432™ Neural 'synchrony' may be key to understanding how the human brain perceives. Public release date: 12-Mar-2013 [ Print | E-mail Share ] [ Close Window ] Contact: John 404-894-6986Georgia Institute of Technology Despite many remarkable discoveries in the field of neuroscience during the past several decades, researchers have not been able to fully crack the brain's "neural code.

Neural 'synchrony' may be key to understanding how the human brain perceives

" The neural code details how the brain's roughly 100 billion neurons turn raw sensory inputs into information we can use to see, hear and feel things in our environment. In a perspective article published in the journal Nature Neuroscience on Feb. 25, 2013, biomedical engineering professor Garrett Stanley detailed research progress toward "reading and writing the neural code. " Stanley also described challenges that remain to read and write the neural code and asserted that the specific timing of electrical pulses is crucial to interpreting the code.

We've had a good time with the Necomimi Cat Ears in the past--we used them to monitor our interest in the last iPhone event--but the Good Times project is a use for them we never expected.

Brain Wave Sensor Shields You From Phone Calls When Your Mind Is Too Busy

The Necomimi Cat Ears, upon which the Good Times project is based, use electroencephalography to monitor brainwave activity. The Cat Ears are a pretty simple cause-and-effect toy: with high levels of brain activity, the ears perk up. With low activity, they droop down. They're fun, but we couldn't see much real practical use for them. Good Times uses essentially a pair of the Necomimis without the ears attached, and uses the brainwave monitoring to trigger a specific response when people try to call you.

I saw the Good Times demonstrated at an AT&T event this morning, and it worked quite well. The Dawn of the Neuro Age: A DIY Revolution. OpenBCI, is a project developing an open-source brain-computer interface (BCI), which completed a successful Kickstarter last January, more than doubling its target goal of $100K.

The Dawn of the Neuro Age: A DIY Revolution

The project opens the door to a renaissance in DIY development of brain computer interface applications. The development of thought controlled devices and applications promises to be a larger development than the smartphone or personal computers before them, and will user in a new age of human achievement, arts, and knowledge. But this is just the beginning, not the end game. Mind-to-mind thought talking possible by 2030, scientist says.

Today we enjoy basic conversations with our smart phone, desktop PC, games console, TV and soon, our car; but voice recognition, many believe, should not be viewed as an endgame technology.

Mind-to-mind thought talking possible by 2030, scientist says

Although directing electronics with voice and gestures may be considered state-of-the-art today, we will soon be controlling entertainment and communications equipment not by talking or waving; but just by thinking! A bioinformatics platform for crowd-sourced brain research. “Alpha Thinkers” are the Transhuman Wave of the Future. Posted: Mon, February 18, 2013 | By: Eric Schulke Alpha thinkers are creatives, innovators, pioneers.

“Alpha Thinkers” are the Transhuman Wave of the Future

They acutely and agilely navigate an abundance of diverse, fallacy aware thinking. The alpha thinker can’t bring themselves to live at the last outpost and not venture further. They cannot resist poking their finger through the realm of sub atomic particles. They can’t stay on this side of the atmosphere. Thanks to Hans Berger’s early 20th century creation of the Electroencephalography machine (EEG) for measuring electricity in the brain, we can see that the brain contains what we now call the Alpha, Beta, Theta and Delta waves. Studies reported in Scientific America find that, “highly creative people tend to produce more brain waves in the alpha range (a frequency of eight to 12 hertz, or cycles per second) during creative tasks than do less creative people.

Peter Russell - Spirit of Now - Home Page. Health : Breakthrough: sensors that can convert thoughts into speech. A mind reading machine has edged closer to reality after scientists found a way of converting thoughts into words. Researchers were able to render brain signals into speech for the first time, relying on sensors attached to the brain surface. The breakthrough, which is up to 90 percent accurate, will be a boon for paralysed patients who cannot speak and could help read anyone’s thoughts ultimately, reports the Telegraph.

“We were beside ourselves with excitement when it started working,” said Prof Bradley Greger, bioengineer at the Utah University who led the project. News About Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), Mind-Controlled Gadgets & Biofeedback. Brain Computer Interfaces Inch Closer to Mainstream. Cadeau CreativeMuse, a lightweight, wireless headband, can engage with computers, iPads and smartphones. Last week, engineers sniffing around the programming code for Google Glass found hidden examples of ways that people might interact with the wearable computers without having to say a word.

Among them, a user could nod to turn the glasses on or off. A single wink might tell the glasses to take a picture. But don’t expect these gestures to be necessary for long. Hacking your BRAIN: Scientists reveal they can find out your PIN number using a cheap scanner. Technique uses a freely available headset often used to control gamesResearchers used it to watch for numbers a person recognised, which triggered a spike in a certain type of brain activitySay it could be used by police to interrogate suspects By Mark Prigg Published: 11:45 GMT, 27 August 2012 | Updated: 20:01 GMT, 27 August 2012 It sounds like something out of a futuristic sci-fi blockbuster, but scientists today demonstrated how they can 'hack' someone's brain to find out their pin number - using a cheap headset.

Researchers from the University of California, University of Oxford and University of Geneva figured out a way to pluck sensitive information from a person’s head, such as PIN numbers and bank information. On the Feasibility of Side-Channel Attacks with Brain-Computer Interfaces. Neurofeedback System. Brain Hacking: Scientists Extract Personal Secrets With Commercial Hardware. Chalk this up to super-creepy: scientists have discovered a way to mind-read personal secrets, such as bank PIN numbers and personal associations, using a cheap headset. Utilizing commercial brain-wave reading devices, often used for hands-free gaming, the researchers discovered that they could identify when subjects recognized familiar objects, faces, or locations, which helped them better guess sensitive information. Security interrogators could benefit most immediately from the new brain hacking technique, since it would reveal when suspects are actually familiar with the face of a potential accomplice.

As for bank information, scientists could guess the first PIN number only 40% of the time. But, as brain-controlled devices become more common, the researches warn that viruses could discretely display images on a screen and help tech-savvy thieves narrow down their search for private information. But, of course, the applications are endless. Wearable health and comfort moni-imec. MyndPlay - Mind controlled movies and video training platform. UnlockProject » Neural Prosthesis Laboratory. Interactive Productline. Scientists construct first map of how the brain organizes everything we see. First map of how the brain organizes objects and actions we see (video) Our eyes may be our window to the world, but how do we make sense of the thousands of images that flood our retinas each day?

Scientists at UC, Berkeley, have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first map of how the brain organizes these groupings. The result — achieved through computational models of brain imaging data collected while the subjects watched hours of movie clips — is what researchers call “a continuous semantic space.” Biofeedback.
