Can AI & Brain Implants improve your mood?


Okay, I took some liberties with the headlines, but the gist of the story is still the same. Researchers with funded by DARPA are looking at developing brain implant devices that can monitor and record neural activity and then stimulate the brain to treat mental illness. Previous such efforts have failed, but the new group thinks they will succeed because they are developing specialist devices. The research team’s goal is to develop technology to help treat veterans and soldiers who suffer from mental challenges. [Photo courtesy of Jesse Orrico via UnSplash.]
