Name Course Instructor Date Brain-Computer Interface Technology: Ethical issues According to McCullagh Paul et al. (109) Brain-computer interface (BCI) is a revolutionary technological advancement that offers higher potential for human augmentation in critical areas such as communication home automation human interactions leisure and gaming. This new technology has become a rapidly developing sector presenting unlimited potential future applications in rational problem-solving. BCI technology has the potential to help people with a disconnected central and peripheral nervous system. Brain signal processing technology has led to path-breaking inventions in the field of engineering and technology; inventions which have ultimately reduced the gap between the human brain and the computer communication system (Sunny et al. 1089). Previously the human-computer integration technologies are used in cochlear implants prosthetic limbs and pacemakers. What makes brain-computer interface technology a concerning issue is the element of integration and interpretation of neural aspects into external outcomes (Wolpe al.
