Facebook Is Developing New Mind-Reading Technology

A new form of communication is currently being developed within Facebook which sounds very similar to mind reading and telepathy.

Whilst there have been no official confirmations from Facebook,  a 2015 comment from CEO Mark Zuckerberg hints towards the company seeking out help for a project to create a brain-controlled, telepathic communication device.

During a Q&A session in June 2015, Zuckerberg said,

“One day, I believe we’ll be able to send full rich thoughts to each other directly using technology. You’ll just be able to think of something and your friends will immediately be able to experience it too if you’d like.”

There were also similar listings which were requesting engineers who were able to develop “novel non-invasive neuroimaging technologies” and create “realistic and immersive haptics experiences.” The idea of neuroimaging is to understand what is going on in a human brain, whilst the use of haptic technology simulates a sense of touch using computers.

In September, a former program manager of applied neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University called Mark Chevrolet, joined the Facebook team as a “technical project lead”. If the idea did become a success, it could be a huge technological breakthrough, as well as putting Facebook, the largest social network, at the forefront of technology and science.

Facebook has recently been seen as rapidly increasing its efforts to pioneer the innovative technology world, taking Google’s Regina Dugan in April 2016 to lead the new Building 8 team. Dugan, who was previously the director of the U.S government’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, before working for Google, was said to be hired by Facebook to be in charge of building “technologies that fluidly blend physical and digital worlds.”
