The Pentagon is looking to better train its troops--by scanning their minds as they play video games




Adaptive, mind-reading computer systems have been a work-in-progress among military agencies for at least a decade. In 2000, far-out research agency Darpa launched “Augmented Cognition,” a program that sought to develop computers that used EEG scans to adjust how they displayed information — visually, orally, or otherwise — to avoid overtaxing one realm of a troop’s cognition. The Air Force also took up the idea, by trying to use EEGs to “assess the operator’s actual cognitive state” and “avoid cognitive bottlenecks before they occur.”

By using neural monitoring to supervise a trainee’s progress in their simulated world, the military could bolster the odds that snap decisions in the real-world will be based on more than just a gut feeling.

Well, may as well be getting paid to play COD and the alike. I wonder how this will turn out. The problem I see is that no two brains are alike. With that being said, I think they would only be able to gather general info to the whole group particpating but I don't think they would want to entrust with a dangerous mission with something that may not be fool proof to that specific soldier wearing it.

They may not be identical but certain parts perform the same task in all our brains, figuring out how those parts work alone or together could help!
