ELONOVINKY: Connecting the brain and computer is one step further, Neuralink has a new chip

It’s no secret that many bosses like to “get into the heads” of their subordinates. And the way it looks, it might not be such a big problem again in the near future.

In recent years, a number of companies have appeared that work on just such technologies. For example, Israel’s InnerEye says its headsets combine machine learning with the innate power of the human mind, ultimately helping users eliminate indecision and work faster than ever before.

“By connecting people and machines, InnerEye combines the best of both worlds,” writes including on its website.

Employers are interested

Instead, Emotiv – a San Francisco-based startup – claims to be able to monitor employee well-being using wireless EEG headsets.

Does that sound dystopian? Of course yes. But how points out IEEE Spectrum, this market is starting to grow rapidly. The question is, of course, whether this is positive or negative news.

“I think there’s a lot of interest from employers,” commented Institute of Neuroethics founder Karen Rommelfanger. “However, I don’t know if there is significant interest from the employees as well.”
