Darpa, or the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, is funding research into the system with hopes of making federal agents' jobs easier. The technology would allow hours of footage to be very quickly processed, so security officers could identify terrorists or other criminals caught on surveillance video much more efficiently.

The system harnesses the brain's well-known ability to recognize an image much faster than the person can identify it.

No existing computer vision systems connect with the human brain, and computers on their own don't do well at identifying unusual events or specific targets.

if no other existing technology can detect vision systems in the human brain, then how did they know which ones they were detecting in the first place? are they discovering that too, or are they just taking the equipment that was used to discover these responces and tweeking it to only respond to one? i always thought the brains process of inturpreting what we say was still unknown.
