US Military Researchers Believe Forces Will Soon Be Able To Communicate Using Telepathy
The US Army Research Office (ARO) believes that soldiers will soon be able to communicate with each other through their brains' signals.
- US ARO is currently studying brain signals that influence action and behavior to build a machine that allows soldiers to telepathically communicate with each other.
- The US-Army funded, Brain Signals Project, is worth $6.5 million.
- An algorithm, complex mathematics, and brain signals of a monkey are being used by ARO scientists to conduct research for the project.
The US Army Research Office (ARO) believes that soldiers will soon be able to communicate with each other through their brains’ signals. It should be noted that ARO researchers had begun the brain signal project worth $6.5 million with the support of the US Army fund.
Under this project, ARO researchers have successfully separated the brain signals that influence action and behavior from signals that do not. The scientists monitored the brain signals of a monkey reaching for a ball repeatedly to separate the brain signals.
First, the researchers detected brain signals which direct motion and behavior using an algorithm and complex mathematics. The same methods were used to later separate the motion and behavior signals from other brain signals.
Hamid Krim, Program Manager at ARO, commented on the progress of the research and said:
The research team has detected signals and interpreted them.
Krim further stated:
Based on the research’s findings, ARO aims to build a machine that gives soldiers’ brains feedback, allowing them to take action before an event occurs – a capability that can protect soldiers’ lives.
According to the ARO researchers, these findings can enable silent communication by allowing the brain to communicate with computers. Ultimately, the research will allow soldiers to silently talk to each other in a field through a computer.
According to Krim, ARO researchers are at work, and a lot of research still needs to be done before any kind of battle-ready machine-human interface powered by brain signals’ development can begin.
