Machine-Learning Can Read Your EEG and Uncover Your Habits

In Brief Researchers have found a way to use EEG scans to identify the brains of alcoholics. While potentially beneficial for medical research, the new discovery could lead to privacy issues now that brainwave-scanning technology is becoming mainstream. Scanning your thoughts… The future of identification authentication technology may, indeed, lie in brainwave scanning. It is a promising field, and its potential impact on daily life is intriguing, to say the least. Now, a pair of cybersecurity researchers from Texas Tech University claimed to have discovered another use for the technology. Abdul Serwadda and Richard Matovu created a machine-learning system that compared two sets of EEG brainwave scans, one belonging to a group of identified alcoholics and the other from anonymous subjects. Using the machine, Serwadda and Matovu were able to correctly identify 25 percent…
