DARPA looks at revolutionizing neural interface implants

DARPA has announced a program aimed at developing a cutting edge neural implant capable of forming a communication bridge between a human brain and a biocompatible device. It is hoped that technology, developed under the Neural Engineering System Design program, will have a wide range of applications in research and healthcare. While modern computing continues to develop at a staggering pass, we’re yet to develop a system that’s truly capable of interfacing with the complexities of the human brain. DARPA’s new program aims to improve things, dramatically enhancing the capabilities of neurotechnology. “Today’s best brain-computer interface systems are like two supercomputers trying to talk to each other using an old 300-baud modem,” said Phillip Alvelda, manager of the NESD program. “Imagine what will become possible when we upgrade our tools…
