Intel wants to have chips (theirs, obviously) inside our brains in the future so that there is no need for a mouse or keyboard to take charge of our computers. Dean Pomerleau is the brains behind this vision, where he works for Intel on matters of cognitive neuroscience, machine learning, computer vision, robotics, man-machine interfaces, brain processing of semantic information, and various brain-scanning technologies including fMRI, MEG, EEG and ECoG. We don’t think something like this will ever take off – it would certainly leave the thought of Big Brother knowing our every move and thoughts.
