If the latest media reports are to be believed, the social networking giant Facebook is hiring neuroscientists to build brain-human interfaces for mind-reading purposes. Wondering why? Probably to pursue Mark Zuckerberg’s keen interest in telepathy and create a mind-reading social network.
The company is working on a “brain-computer interface” to help people talk to each other by reading their minds. This will be done by using advanced neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and electrical engineering.
The report talks about few mysterious jobs being advertised by the social network. The company is looking for a “brain-computer interface engineer” for its Building 8 team. It also mentions that the engineers will work on developing advanced brain-computer interface technologies.
For those who don’t know, Facebook’s Brain 8 team looks after the company’s new and advanced hardware projects.
Use Of ADVANCED NEUROSCIENCE, A.I., AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
The other Building 8 team jobs being advertised are jobs for people who are capable of creating a “communications and computing platform of the future.”
One of the interesting skills mentioned in the listing is the experience of “speech and audio signal processing algorithms and systems.”
You might be knowing that in the past Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has talked about a computing platform in the future that’ll be a version of telepathy. The job advertisements surely suggest some progress in the same direction.
But, at the moment, we can’t claim anything with 100% certainty. I’ve reached out to Facebook for a comment and I’ll be updating the article with new updates.
