Very intelligent electronic binoculars to use brain activity

One of the most interesting defense projects we’ve ever seen, is DARPA’s Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System program (CT2WS) - an academic and industrial consortium led by Northrop Grumman Corporation has been awarded the first phase of an advanced research contract to develop a panoramic day/night optical system that will use human brain activity to detect, analyze and alert foot-soldiers to possible threats. The first phase will result in a preliminary design for the Human-aided Optical Recognition/Notification of Elusive Threats (HORNET) system. HORNET will utilize a helmet equipped with electro-encephalogram electrodes placed on the scalp to monitor brain activity. The operator's neural responses to potential threats will train the system's algorithms, which will continue to be refined over time so that the warfighter is always presented with items of relevance to his mission (let’s hope it is easier to train than a spam filter).  Read More
