Brain waves to detect potentially harmful personal information

Recently, more than 500 million passwords were stolen when Yahoo revealed its security was compromised, every other day, a new report of hackers gaining access to private or sensitive information comes to light.

Fingerprint scans and iris identification are just two types of security methods. Fingerprints can be stolen and iris scans can be replicated. Nothing has proven foolproof from being subject to computer hackers.

Now brain waves can tell more about a person than just his or her identity. It could reveal medical, behavioral or emotional aspects of a person that, if brought to light, could be embarrassing or damaging to that person.  And with EEG devices becoming much more affordable, accurate and portable and applications being designed that allows people to more readily read an EEG scan, the likelihood of that happening is dangerously high.

“The EEG has become a commodity application. You can buy an EEG device that fits on your head just like a pair of headphones, now there are apps on the market, brain-sensing apps where you can buy the gadget, download the app on your phone and begin to interact with the app using your brain signals.”

Walking Robot is not too Far

Taking a single step for a human requires force, coordination, balance and direction. These entire factors present unique challenges for engineers to design a robot that can walk. New term experimented with the “dynamic balance” is introduced a feature that allows robots to maintain balance while walking. This new technology recently created a robot for testing that can walk. This new innovation can open the door for robot in military emergency operations or helping disabled individuals with their daily tasks. This technology is still in its developmental stage but we know that robot needs to walk before they can run.

3-D printing for Artificial Intelligence

The 3-D printing technology has made many people excited about new applications. Currently used printers have many limitations. Up until recently, most 3-D printers can only use plastic. A group of researchers have started to develop new 3-D printer inks. The team prints intricate objects chooses using materials based upon their mechanical binding, electrical conductivity, or optical traits. As a result new inks will enable a wider variety of functions, including artificial human organ creation, and understanding complex human body.
