Biomedical Engineers and Mind Reading

Science fiction and fact are converging again as thought control technology matures in the engineering laboratories and commercially.  Advances in algorithm development, memory and cpu speed are producing more and more examples of solid advances in translation/transduction systems which monitor and use the brain’s EEG signals.  Starting with biofeedback experiments in the 60’s and 70’s this technical field has now matured to the point that thought to speech applications are beginning to be considered seriously.
