Stepping into Transhuman Stage: Connecting Human Brains through Wireless Sensor Network(WSN)
November 9, 2010 12 Comments
Telepathy is probably, I think, most alluring and widely spread concept and often portrayed by our sci fi media which sometimes sail concepts into abyss of highly impertinent imagination. Well, natural telepathy may not be possible for all but artificial telepathy would bring this capability to you. You will be able to communicate through your brain by this amazing technology of artificial telepathy network-Wireless Sensor Network.
This future Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) based communication technology direction relates to a system and method for enabling human beings to communicate with one another by monitoring brain activity. In particular, this relates to such a system and method where brain activity of a particular individual is monitored and transmitted in a wireless manner (e.g. via satellite)from the location of the individual to a remote location so that the brain activity can be computer analyzed at the remote location there by enabling the computer and/or individuals at the remote location to determine what the monitored individual was thinking or wishing to communicate. In certain embodiments this future WSN based communication technology direction would relate to the analysis of brain waves or brain activity, and/or to the remote firing of select brain nodes in order to produce a predetermined effect on an individual.
Generally speaking, this future WSN Based communication technology direction fulfills the above described needs in the art by providing a method of communicating comprising the steps of:
– providing a first human being ata first location;
– providing a computer at a second location that is remote from the first location;
– providing a satellite;
– providing at least one sensor (preferably a plurality–e.g. tens, hundreds, or thousands, with each sensor monitoring the firing of one or more brain nodes or synapse type members) on the first human being;
– detecting brain activity of the first human being using at least one sensor, and transmitting the detected brain activity to the satellite as a signal including brain activity information;
– the satellite sending a signal including the brain activity information to the second location;
– a receiver at the second location receiving the signal from the satellite and forwarding the brain activity information in the signal to the computer;
– comparing the received brain activity information of the first human being with normalized or averaged brain activity information relating to the first human being from memory; and
– determining whether the first human being was attempting to communicate particular words, phrases or thoughts, based upon the comparing of the received brain activity information to the information from memory.
In certain terms, the WSN based future communication technology direction includes the following steps:
-asking the first human being a plurality of questions and recording brain activity of the first human being responsive to the plurality of questions in the process of developing said normalized or averaged brain activity information relating to the first human being stored in the memory.
-A database in a memory may include, for each of a plurality (e.g. one hundred or thousands) of individuals, a number of prerecorded files each corresponding to a particular thought, attempt to communicate a word, attempt to attempt to communicate a phrase or thought, or mental state.
-Measured brain activity of a given individual may be compared to files from that database of that individual to determine what the individual is attempting to communicate or what type of mental state the individual is in.
It is another object of this future WSN based communication technology direction to communicate monitored brain activity from one location to another in a wireless manner, such as by IR, RF, or satellite. In certain terms of this WSN based future communication technology direction, the computer located at the remote location includes a neural network suitably programmed in accordance with known neural network techniques, for the purpose of receiving the monitored brain activity signals, transforming the signals into useful forms, training and testing the neural network to distinguish particular forms and patterns of physiological activity generated in the brain of the monitored individual, and/or comparing the received monitored brain activity information with stored information.
