Military weapons and research
Can a machine read your mind?
It sounds like science fiction, but politicians, lawyers and advertisers are falling over themselves to buy into the latest scientific discovery: brainjacking. Soon our secret desires and not so innocent thoughts could become public knowledge. John Naish investigates an uncomfortable trend
The technology’s military potential is also being developed. Researchers at Honeywell Aerospace have created an EEG system that reads defence analysts’ brains as they examine spy-satellite photographs. Because our subconscious brains run significantly faster than our conscious neocortexes, a photo-analyst’s brain can unconsciously register a visual anomaly long before they may become aware of it.
Honeywell’s brain scanner issues an alert when it detects neural signals that show the analyst has subconsciously noticed something suspect. Bob Smith, the company’s chief of advanced technology, claims it will make spy-photo analysis up to six times faster, “helping the military keep threats out of harm’s way”.
The new arms race
Which nation will be the first to build the new "quantum weapon", the U.S, China or Russia.
When the enemy presses the kill button the U.S president will throw himself out from a window or hang himself.
And the man on that submarine that should have presssed the button and fired the missiles got an epileptic attack and is lying on the floor. Every submarine can be tracked i real time with this new technique. The first primitive experiments will perhaps lock like epilepsy, and will also be about tracking a brain in real time.
And it's possible to use this new technique to spy in the head of anyone in the White House or pentagon.
Game over. The U.S lost the war.
That will perhaps start a new arms race.
Or can be used to convince the men with the big wallets to pay for the research.
Can the U.S government take the risk of China or Russia having superior weapons in a war.
A weapon that can neutralize and make the U.S nuclear weapons useless.
You know that you lost the arms race when you hear voices speak chinese "ching dong yan-kee cho" in your head telling you to go hang yourself damn Yankee :-)
