Transcript of Computers and brain in the future

Researchers are already using brain-computer interfaces to aid the disabled, treat diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, and provide therapy for depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. What can you do Work is under way on devices that may eventually let you communicate with friends telepathically, give you superhuman hearing and vision or even let you download data directly into your brain, a la "The Matrix." How it is developing Size The size of computers have changed drastically through the years. There are still some very bulky systems but most computers are easier to handle. For instance, the CPU used to lay flat. That had it's advantages because you could sit the monitor directly on top of it. Most desktop computers today have towers instead. The difference is the monitors are much smaller. Most monitors are flat screens now compared to the huge, bulky ones of the past. This makes viewing the monitor much easier on the eyes because it can sit further away from your face. There is no longer a need to sit the monitor on top of the CPU because newer monitors allow you to have more space on the desk. Speed Speed- The speed of computers has come a long way since it was invented. In fact, loading pages, opening programs and nearly anything else you want to do comes at lightening speeds today. There is little to no waiting time when it comes to computers today. External storage There were very few ways in which to store files externally when computers were first invented. Everything either had to be stored on the computer itself or on to floppy disk. The first disks were very large and you had to be extremely careful with them or they could easily get ruined. How have computers changed How Mind-Controlled Devices Will Change Our Future Interpreting Brainwaves This idea led to the creation of Emotiv and developing our EPOC neuroheadset, which reads and interprets your brainwaves. The headset's multisensor "arms," which extend to the front and back of your head, pick up electrical signals from different functional parts of the brain. Both subconscious and conscious mental states can be detected using advanced algorithms, allowing the computer to react more naturally to the user’s mental state and even to accept direct mental commands. Moving Objects With Your Mind . A young woman who was severely immobilized from a car accident almost a decade ago struggled for years to regain the ability and confidence to communicate with her loved ones.
she has been able to slowly build her ability to manipulate objects simply with her mind. Wearing the neuroheadset, she can move a virtual cube on the computer screen forward, lift it up, and let it return to its default position. The mental commands may seem simple, but the tears of joy and smile that beams across her face for the first time in a decade is priceless. Taking Brain Research to New Levels What’s most exciting about this technology as we look into the horizon is the opportunity it has to revolutionize brain research. A fundamental shift is happening in the way in which brain data is being collected. Each of these neuroheadsets is a high-resolution, multi-channel EEG system, taking in more than 2,000 samples of data every second. They're not patients going into hospitals or clinics to get their brains imaged; they're simply everyday people, in the comfort of their own homes or workplaces, doing everyday tasks and activities. And they're contributing brain data at a much greater frequency and wider range of circumstances than what is feasible in a clinical context. in the future Now Computers now and in the future In the future Now Brain controlled devices now and in the future Welcome To the future of computers and mind controlled devices By Ellen Webster Thanks for watching oh and enjoy the future
