CHINA - New Mind-Reading Chip

Arno Froese

Engineers from China Electronics Corporation and Tianjin University have created a chip known as the Brain Talker, with the device said to be capable of reading human brainwave activity and efficiently translating it to enable users to control a computer.

The technology, known as a ‘brain-computer interface,’ or BCI, has been theorized for many decades, and has featured prominently in science fiction and techno-thriller books and films.

Now, Chinese engineers and academics have apparently taken the next step and actually created a working BCI device, with the Brain Talker debuting at the Third Annual World Intelligence Congress in Tianjin.

“The signals transmitted and processed by the brain are submerged in the background noise. This BC3 [Brain-Computer Codec Chip] has the ability to discriminate minor neural electrical signals and decode their information efficiently which can greatly enhance the speed and accuracy of brain-computer interfaces,”

“Brain Talker makes BCI technology more promising for civil use since the chip is more portable, wearable and simpler,” said Ming Dong, director of Tianjin University’s Academy of Medical Engineering & Translational Medicine, emphasizing that BCIs “hold a promising future.”

Arno's commentary

To read someone’s mind has been a prominent subject in the science-fiction world. However, with the advance of new technology, particularly so-called artificial intelligence, nothing seems impossible for man’s imagination to achieve. One thing become clearer as time goes by: these new inventions, particularly the ones where AI is involved, are considered helpful when it comes to medical science. If patients can be helped, it is considered good. If patients can be healed, it is considered a super-success.

Regarding communist China, we begin to see the tendency of its leadership. Although formerly relatively insignificant, at this time they have the potential of being not just one of the world leaders, but the undisputed world leader. We must recall that China was first in paper-making, the compass, and gunpowder, to name a few. The article concludes: “China independently holds the complete intellectual property rights to the Brain Talker chip technology.”
