Computer performance doubles roughly every two years but human performance unfortunately does not. So, in order to stay in control of increasing machine power we need to outsource part of that control. And who’s better suited for the task than those machines themselves?
MIT, Indiana University and Tufts University have combined their efforts to develop Brainput, a brain-computer interface (BCI) which can read and respond to a user’s mental state. It can identify if a user is multitasking and the level of performance. When Brainput detects a multitasking user reaching certain stress-levels it autonomously delegates tasks to other actors.
