An Amazing Technology for Telepathy
DARPA, Google, Facebook and mind-reading
A research about history of thought identification in neuroscience
During the last decade, neuro-decoding, i.e. the decodification of human thoughts by reading neuronal activity, has been made possible thanks to the symbiosis of neuroscience and computing science.
The progress in this field is deeply connected to military research and tech-giant corporations aims.
We can understand what is going on beyond the mainstream media announcements by framing them at the light of a wider contemporary socio-historical perspective.
The conference will be also an occasion for the foundation of a working group on these themes.
