U.S. Military Project to Plug Brains into Computers

The U.S. military has revealed a $65m program to develop a ‘brain chip’ allowing humans to simply plug into a computer according to a report by the Daily Mail. The system could give soldiers super-senses and even help treat people with blindness, paralysis and speech disorders. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) officials said they are, “developing an implantable system able to provide precision communication between the brain and the digital world.”

DARPA has selected five grant recipients for the Neural Engineering System Design (NESD) program. According to the report, the multi-million dollar grant recipients are: Brown University, Columbia University, The Seeing and Hearing Foundation, the John B. Pierce Laboratory, Paradromics Inc. and the University of California, Berkeley.
