Neurosecurity

Neurosecurity is a new nexus where neural engineering and computer security meet. Medical devices now often include neural implants that contain computing circuits and can be hacked. Augmented reality and augmented cognition devices could also offer interesting new attack vectors for hackers intent on controlling behavior or redirecting purpose. The Next Hacking Frontier: Your Brain? […]

Augmented Cognition

Using technology and computational power to extend and enhance our cognitive resources and abilities is called “augmented cognition”. This can involve filtering information flow, modulating information volume to stay under overwhelm limits, enhancing data with analysis and visualization, enhancing bandwidth by using multiple channels and information formats, sequencing information properly to allow increased assimilation rates, […]
