MissionBefore our eyes the splicing of human andmachine takes place"Internet is the combination of human andcomputer" (Vint Cerf, one of the forefathers ofthe Internet)Today this connection functions on the levelof intellect and logic. We want to go further byteaching the computer to feel the human
Problem Communication through computer deprives us of an important part of information about the person we are communicating with
Problem We could make better decisions in training, work, relationships, etc., if we knew more about the person For example, stress level or drug influence
Problem This additional information is hidden in the brain There are difficulties in acquiring this information since it is hidden even from its "owner" in the sub-conscious level
Problem It is common to acquire information through substances A more direct way: to gather information through devices directly from the brain
ProblemToday such methods of informationacquisition are either expensive or notinformative enough
Solution Transfer from the analysis of substances to analysis of information through internet without use of additional equipment
SolutionRemote testing for: – presence and level of stress – depressive state – amount of free resources of the organism – use of drugs/tranquillizers – cognitive abilities – ...
