On his Facebook page, Mark Zuckerberg added: "Our brains produce enough data to stream four HD movies every second". When you think of a cup, you're thinking of the object and the idea, not "C-U-P". And yet, when we communicate through speech, it's at the rate of a 1980s dial-up modem.
Dugan said the system would be capable of "typing" 100 words per minute by decoding users' neural activity, which is five times faster than we're able to type on smartphones. More than 60 scientists from universities all over the world are working on this project with Facebook to make the goal of typing 100 words per minute with the brain possible. Additionally, they will allow people to think something in one language and have a person receive the thought in an entirely different language. "Even something as simple as a "yes/no" brain click or a "brain mouse" would be transformative".
"Technology is going to have to get a lot more advanced before we can share a pure thought or feeling, but this is a first step".
Dugan, who used to be the head of both DARPA and Google's Advanced Technologies and Projects division said in her keynote speech that actually getting access that brain information in consumers is a long way out.
It'll work by skipping past the speech part of the brain altogether.
Dugan says that "no one has the right" to decode your silent thoughts, but the fact that's even something that has to be said says something scary about where technology is headed.

On hearing through the skin, Dugan said that we have two square meters of skin on our body that are filled with sensors, and wired to our brain. But what Facebook is proposing is perhaps more radical-a world in which social media doesn't require picking up a phone or tapping a wrist watch in order to communicate with your friends; a world where we're connected all the time by thought alone.
She also showed a video that demonstrated a second technology that showed the ability to "listen" to human speech through vibrations on the skin. Facebook is hoping to replicate what the cochlea in your ear does-takes sound and separates into frequencies transmitted to the brain-except via your skin. Researchers at Stanford University, for example, have shown that a brain-to-computer interface can enable people with paralysis to type via direct brain control, using electrode arrays placed in the brain to record signals from the motor cortex that controls muscle movement.
Brain technology has been a very popular topic lately in the tech world. It's like using braille but through a system of actuators and sensors.
But Dugan did stress that Facebook isn't blindly pursuing technological advancement without considering the implications.
This celebration speaks to those of deep faith, but also to a world of others who are seeking renewal and hope in their lives. I love Easter because the music is so uplifting - and reminds me of the people I love who sang it with me for so many years.
